Dance Denmark Program Developer
I have been fortunate to have had many travel experiences and I know first-hand how enriching it is to be introduced to a culture different than the one you grew up in. It was with that in mind that I proposed to the Department of Dance to develop a study aboard program in Denmark, and was exceedingly excited when the university approved the proposal. It is such an honor to be able to bring dance majors from Ohio State University to Denmark for a study abroad/cultural exchange program that is committed to engage with dance as a creative movement practice with many forms of expression.
