This program is unique with a focus on contemporary dance. The Lyon Dance Semester began in the fall of 2008 and will be offered every other fall semester. The program is designed to correspond with the Biennale de la Danse, a world-renowned international dance festival in Lyon, France.
The dance program in Lyon gives students a rare opportunity to experience the best of international dance in a beautiful and accessible city that is alive with art and culture. Coursework includes dance theory and criticism, creative process, and modern dance technique.
Additionally, students study French language and history and benefit from an extended experience of the vibrant and varied culture of southern France.
The program offers a full semester of Franklin Pierce credits and will take advantage of the artistic and cultural heritage of Lyon, the city that is known as the "doorway to Provence". Course-related trips may include Paris, Avignon, Nice, Florence and Venice, and are designed to complement and enrich the curriculum. This program is open to students at all colleges and universities with an interest in dance.
