ENJOY! Seeing another country and meeting people from around the world is an experience in itself. You will get the chance to learn the local culture through dance. You will eat new foods, see places of local interest, and enjoy the city or town as locals do. On the weekends there are excursions to expand your view beyond the classroom. Navigating a new place will lend you problem solving insights– all while having a good time. At least 95% of our students report that their experience abroad was educational, but also largely fun.

 

Studying abroad is a unique opportunity to combine classroom learning with real-life experience. Particularly in the dance program, you will get to apply language to your lessons and acquire language through active learning.  Expanding learning outside of the classroom gives participants the chance to connect with the culture in a meaningful and memorable way.

Program Overview

All dance programs fuse a Standard Group Language Study program with local dance classes offered either at the local NRCSA school or at a local dance studio. This unique combination offers exciting hands-on language and dance education, meaningful cultural immersion, and an enriching language program. All of the teachers for the dance lessons have professional experience as dancers as well as practice teaching.

The dance classes are an informational and enjoyable way to be immersed into a new culture. Dance is an art that is culturally specific, so by learning the common dances of a specific country, you open yourself up to the music, rhythm, and style that comprises the past and present culture. You will get to learn dance and language in an engaging and interactive way. Combining a dance program with language lessons allows you to apply the language that you learn in the classroom to fun, artistic expression.

Programs can last as short as one week and the types of dance offered are: Flamenco, Salsa, Merengue, Samba, Rumba, Tango, Greek dance, German dance, and basic Latin dances.
