Connect to global trends and trendsetters in contemporary dance through the Current Trends in Contemporary Dance Study Abroad program, presented by the BYU Department of Dance in summer 2019. Over a six-week period, participants will take classes from a dynamic roster of instructors at major international contemporary dance festivals in Vienna, Berlin, Prague, and Amsterdam. Guest lectures and panelists, along with visits to major historical sites and museums, will inform student choreography exploring aesthetic, social, and political trends in dance. Students will also experience dance as a site of community engagement and social change through exchange with nonprofit organizations. Participants will become more self-aware and articulate artist-citizens, with skills and knowledge to engage with the field of dance from a more global perspective.
