Artistic Director, dancer, choreographer and director (born February 5, 1969, Tata). After graduating from the Folk Dance Faculty of the Hungarian Dance Academy in 1987, he accepted the invitation of Zoltán Imre to join the Szeged Ballet where he became soloist from 1989. In 1990 he created his independent studio within the company for his choreographic experimentations. He started introducing his own choreographies from 1991 and remained the company’s leading soloist. In 1993, after the departure of Zoltán Imre, he became the Artistic Director of the renewed Szeged Contemporary Dance Company. In his creations, philosophy and emotions are mixed with intellectual motives. Among the Hungarian choreographers, he was the first to use the elements of contemporary dance which are characterized by clear technical skills; this partly lies in the modern methods such as Limon or Cunningham, partly in his own improvisational dance moves. As a guest teacher, he attended masterclasses in Amsterdam and Zurich (1994) and in Italy (1999, 2005). By now Juronics has grown to be an internationally acclaimed creator with 65 choreographies under his name. The careful combination of his storylines, the clear, unified form of dancing and the dramatic structure make his works a cathartic experience. Spectacular staging, lighting, effects, and music are also well-integrated parts of his works. Juronics successfully introduced himself as a director in the world of prose theatre as well and has also become a popular choreographer, director of several musicals and operas in many theatres.
