The PTE Dance Team was founded in 2011, its members are students of the various faculties of the University of Pécs, but students of the practice secondary schools can be found among them as well. Their aim is to present high-quality productions at various events, therefore their repertoire includes a very diverse palette of dance styles. Their all-night dance performances have been held in several theaters of the country since 2013, and most recently they performed their joint performance with the Pécs Ballet.
So far, they have performed as dancers for several well-known Hungarian performers, but have also performed with a Roma symphonic and cross-over orchestras, a Spanish flamenco ensemble, singers from Madagascar, Nigeria, and the US. They have also danced as cheerleaders of eight-pair rower teams of Harvard and Princeton Universities. They have performed all around the country, in China, Thailand, and Croatia.
In the Cheerleading category, they have won two Interregional Cups among the competing universities, and in 2018 they became Hungarian champions in the Show Cheer Team category at the Cheer Hungarian University and College National Championship. In 2018 they received the Award for University Culture from the Rector of PTE.
The Dance Team has always paid attention to involve members from all faculties of the universities and from the most different countries. So far we have had members from Japan, Spain, Turkey, Brasil, China, France, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Germany, Serbia.
