The Anton Bruckner Private University honors the work of Mr. Jarek Cemerek as University Professor for Contemporary Dance and his extraordinary commitment - both during the time of his professorship and afterwards - to dance education oriented towards international standards.
Mr. Jarek Cemerek brought rich experience of European and non-European dance companies and dance universities to his academic work. His pedagogical commitment was highly appreciated by students; he represents a great artistic and personal role model for them. His conceptual and organizational expertise gave new impulses to dance education at Anton Bruckner Private University.
