Dance

Imagine creating a contemporary dance routine inspired by the Aztecs of Mexico, learning the fundamentals of Indian classical dance while practicing the art of yoga in its place of origin, or even being surrounded by an African drum circle and feeling the beat inside as you explore Ghana.

Dominican Republic

Dance techniques and artistic styles have been continuously moving and growing throughout the existence of man throughout every culture. Opportunities for Dance majors include taking courses abroad at another university, internships in the dance community (i.e. at the Flamenco Museum in Sevilla, Spain through ELAP), or direct enrollment into the dance program abroad of your choice. Improve your own technique and expand your perspective to set you apart from your competitors, create professional relationships, or simply to evoke new inspiration and self-discovery.
