Summer Dance Program

8 Weeks • A World of Experience

The Summer Dance Program at Webster University Geneva is an intensive study abroad experience designed to provide both ballet courses and exposure to diverse cutting edge European contemporary choreographers through a series of guest artists in the studio. Bundled as a cluster of three individual courses, the summer program also gives students a holistic and highly personalized experience of immersion into European art and culture.

•  Small class sizes (limited to 15-18 participants), held fully in English
•  Attended two performances, at the world renowned Béjart Ballet Lausanne and at the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève
•  Group Trip to Art Basel and “Meet the Artist” events held on campus
•  Immersion in Swiss and European culture, through daily activities and personal excursions to cities such as Paris, Berlin, and Barcelona.
