Accademia dell'Arte Dance Program (Spring)

Students in a dance class

Our European faculty aims to create an atmosphere that encourages authentic and individual expression thereby cultivating artistic development and personal growth. Finding its roots in the European tradition of modern dance, German Ausdruckstanz and German dance theatre, the program combines classical ballet, modern and post-modern performance techniques as well as somatic approaches with specific cultural movement traditions such as Butoh or the traditional Italian Tarantismo. Students in the Accademia’s Dance Program will enjoy an enriching and challenging encounter with European dance culture in a truly inspiring environment.
Sabine Fichter, Director of the Dance Program

Each spring semester Accademia dell’Arte offers a unique, dynamic dance program designed in partnership with Professor Karen Dearborn from Muhlenberg College and Goucher College. Working intimately with a variety of European artists, students will have the opportunity to explore various approaches in order to further develop their personal dance expression, technique and their creativity.

Students will expand their choreographic range through the creation of solo and small group pieces and will be encouraged to incorporate a range of disciplines, including song and text, into their work. They will be exposed to diverse musical and thematic materials that will challenge their choreographic skills.

  • Extended Performance Topics: Dance Performance
