He holds professional courses for the artists of Ballet Pécs and the dance department of the National Theatre of Miskolc.
His work has been recognised with numerous honours: in 2003 he was decorated with the Silver Cross of Merit of the Republic of Hungary, and he also received the Gyula Harangozó Award in 2006. In the course of his work as a choreographer, he has worked together with László Vámos, István Iglódi, János Ács, Attila Vidnyánszky, Miklós Szinetár, Viktor Nagy and numerous other directors.
