Connect to global trends and internationally known artists in contemporary dance by attending the Contemporary Dance Study Abroad program, presented by the BYU Department of Dance in summer 2023. Over a five-week period, participants will take classes and attend performances and lectures from a dynamic roster of instructors at major international contemporary dance festivals in Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Vienna, as well as visit major historical sites and museums. This program is specifically designed to challenge students’ movement skills and capacities; broaden artistic philosophies, aesthetics, and perspectives; enlarge pedagogical praxis and teaching methods; network with international trailblazers and experts in the field; and create opportunities for greater awareness of diversity and inclusive practices. Ideal candidates will be interested in the physical capacities of dance as well as dance in its many facets, including as a tool for entertainment, artistic creation, social engagement, international teaching methodologies, and an understanding of the workings of the physical world and how it connects to the larger human experience.
