DIDACTIC AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR TAMAS MORICZ

Opus Ballet Center is proud to announce that our former pre-professional training course R.O.S, ( brought to success for the past eight years by Samuele Cardini ) will take on a new identity and a renewed form in 2021. Tamas Geza Moricz the former Artistic co-Director of the Royal Ballet of Flanders alongside Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and long time dancer of William Forsythe will be it’s new Artistic Director. PULSE will be a new pre-professional training course for young dancers who would like to enter deeper in the world of contemporary dance. The 10-month long project will offer a redefined course, providing classes in different disciplines of dance: classical ballet, contemporary dance (floorwork, release, acro, etc…) as well as improvisation, choreographic composition, partnering, dance history and career guidance.   PULSE will also offer the opportunity to meet with internationally renown visiting teachers, and an introduction to the worlds of established choreographers. Special attention will be paid to prepare participants to enter into the professional world afterwards and to prepare them to become useable and useful dancers and graceful performers.

INTERVIEW TAMAS MORICZ BY SILVIA POLETTI (critic and dance writer)

Silvia: Ciao Tamas. You have had a great career and an impressive experience in the field of contemporary dance, but I’ve read that you’ve also had a training as a classical ballet dancer. Could you describe your career path as a professional dancer?
Tamas : Hello Silvia, Yes. I’ve started with a nine year long Vaganova training at the Hungarian National Dance University. Afterwards however I’ve had a Contemporary dance career. I’ve worked most notably with Jan Fabre in Antwerpen and then from there I went on to work with The Frankfurt Ballet, under the directorship of William Forsythe. This became my most formative experiences in dance. The Frankfurt Ballet was a truly exceptional period in dance history and I was very lucky to be a part of that group. more info
