Department of Dance Welcomes Kinga Szemessy, ArtsLink Fellow

Kinga Szemessy, a Hungarian dancer and choreographer with training in classical ballet, contemporary dance, contact improvisation, Hungarian folk dance, Graham and Cunningham technique and Gaga, will be visiting Ohio State’s Department of Dance for a few weeks this fall.

“I’m eager to engage Ohio State Dance faculty and students,” Szemessy said, “I like to explore hybrid works that incorporate performance, discussion and action and I’m fascinated with both dance theory and practice.” She is an ArtsLink fellow.

Citizen Exchange Corps (CEC) ArtsLink promotes international communication and understanding through collaborative, innovative arts projects for mutual benefit. It supports and produces programs that encourage the exchange of visual and performing artists and cultural managers in the United States and 37 countries overseas.
