44th National Táncház Festival & Fair • 4–6 April 2025
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first dance house held in Budapest, we are launching a campaign to collect dance house stories, memories and memorabilia.

We encourage dance house folks, dancers, musicians and crafts people to send us their short stories, photos or documents from the seventies to the present day. The materials should show a connection to dance houses, dance house camps, courses, or may be about experiences collecting music or dance ‘in the field’.

In this campaign we are also counting on stories and documents from those living beyond our borders or in the diaspora. We also include dance houses of the other ethnic groups living in the Hungarian language area.

We intend to edit and assemble a volume from the materials and writings received, the publication of which is scheduled for this year's Dance House Day (May 6, 2022).

Works that do not fit in the printed version may be placed on our web interface.

Deadline for submission of materials: 2022 February 20th.

E-mail: tanchaz50stories@tanchaz.hu

We are excited and will be pleased to receive your stories and memories from the last half century of the Hungarian urban dance house movement.
