The Institute of Dance Arts (Anton Bruckner University) has not only given me a high-level of technical and theoretical education, but I also had the privilege of spending both my Bachelor and Master studies with a supporting group of teachers and professors from all over the world. I was able to work in diverse groups of talented contemporary dancers and pedagogues, and to collaborate in interdisciplinary projects.
I am Eszter Petrány, professional contemporary dancer and dance educator and I am grateful for all my years at ABPU.

What is the best/most beautiful place you’ve visited in Upper Austria?
There are a lot of picturesque places everywhere in Upper Austria. Since I live in Mühlviertel, I cycle here a lot with a road bike and get to see places you wouldn’t normally see if you travel by car. For example, Allerheiligen im Mühlkreis is located on the top of a hill, and there is an amazing view, almost all the way to Czech border when the weather is good. There are a lot of nice places along the Danube and along the smaller rivers flowing from the hills and joining the Danube.
Of course, Salzkammergut is also a must-see for anyone who comes to Upper Austria.
