Danish American Performi[n]g Art & Cultural Exchange

University of Maryland, Baltimore County

DANCE DENMARK (UMBC) is an intensive three-week long faculty-led study abroad program during the Winter Session that foregrounds dance as a lens through which students learn about the cultural fabric of Denmark, community engagement and meaningful social change. The program consists of two key components: 1) Dance studies – embodied study of physical movement forms; and 2) Danish culture immersion. The cultural component includes looking at the influence dance and other performance forms have on the rise and shaping of social democracy in Denmark; first-hand experiences of Danish culture through authentic social exchange; and visits to historical and cultural sites. Some dance or physical movement background encouraged but not required.

 

Students enrolled in one of the University System of Maryland institutions are eligible for enrolling in this program when offered through studyabroad.umbc.edu
