We concluded our series of regional meetings in Budapest at the French School, in a truly multicultural environment. Keeping all the kids on the same page was even more exciting challenge this time: not only did they come from different schools, different towns and villages or different regions – only half of the dancers attending the school hosting the event spoke Hungarian. Overcoming geographic, social and linguistic obstacles, they were successful in playing, concentrating and working together as participants of the Dancing on the Square project. It seems that these 400 children truly know no boundaries.

We are grateful to Andi Csenteri and Benjámin Losonczi for holding the regional dance rehearsals; to the Foundation for Democratic Youth for bringing harmony and a shared language to the teams with their development games; and Bertalan Váci for devising the choreography for the final movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.

With just over a month to go before the performance, all of the BFO’s attention is on the project.
