Dancing in London

Students can spend the fall semester of their junior year in London working with international technique teachers and choreographers.  Students also attend dozens of dance and theater performances presented by both British and international companies.  Courses build on the opportunities that London provides with frequent field trips, guest speakers, as well as weekend trips to other parts of England.
