Dance Abroad

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.

ACADEMIC ADVICE

FIRST YEAR AND SOPHOMORE STUDENTS

  • The earliest you can go abroad is the summer of your first year. 
  • Students may fulfill General Education Foundation and Issues requirements abroad. 
  • Students taking at least 3 credits abroad will fulfill their Global Perspectives requirement. 

 

GENERAL ADVICE

  • Students may take courses that satisfy some requirements in their Dance major or the General Education program. Be sure to begin planning at least six months in advance. 
  • Students do not need to speak a foreign language in order to study in a country where English is not the official language. Take advantage of your newly honed language skills and seize the opportunity to do an internship at a company or cultural organization at the end of your time abroad. 
  • Students should be working with their faculty mentor to plan and make appropriate course selections for study abroad. 

 

To determine the GVSU course equivalencies for courses taken abroad, please visit our Course Approval page. 

Once you have selected a program, schedule a meeting with your academic advisor to discuss your plans.
