|USF Dance in Paris Semester||
January to May 2018
Now in its third year, USF/Dance offers a one-of-a-kind fully accredited semester-long study abroad program in Paris: a rigorous and rich course of study that aligns perfectly with the high standards of the American BFA/BA Dance curriculum. Students take courses in dance technique (modern, ballet, yoga and world dance forms), choreography, dance history and an intensive French language/culture course.
Classes are taught by a world-class faculty from across the academic and professional spectrum. This is a unique program for dedicated dance majors/minors, integrating a global perspective tailored to the curricular, creative and technical needs of today’s college-age dancers while introducing them to the European dance scene. In 2018, students will see live performances by The Paris Opera Ballet, as well as performances of works by Pina Bausch, Emanuel Gat, Anne Teresa deKeersmaeker, William Forsythe, Sasha Waltz, and Hofesh Shecter, among many others.
