Dance House Day is traditionally organized all over the country on the anniversary of the first ‘urban’ dance house in Hungary. The Liszt Academy gala folk music concert is part of a national series, which this year is being organized jointly by the Hungarian Heritage House and Liszt Academy. István Pávai is the concert organizer; he has already proved on numerous occasions that the use of scientific results and the demand for quality entertainment are not mutually exclusive factors. The Béla Halmos Trophy and the Béla Halmos Memorial Medal are presented at a ceremony. The former was established by the Hungarian Heritage House, the latter by the Association of Friends of the Hungarian Heritage House. The Trophy, which is actually the violin once owned by Béla Halmos, is presented to an under-40-year-old musician actively playing traditional folk instrumental music in dance houses, who in the course of his/her work maintains contact with Hungarian communities living beyond the country’s border. The Memorial Medal recognizes outstanding professional and community ‘background work’ within the framework of the Dance House Movement.
