Dance Semester in Italy

You’ll boost your resume and stand out at auditions, and have the chance to experience the awe-inspiring city of Florence. Students on PAA's Dance Semester in Italy have the unique opportunity to take a dance class at a university, while also pursuing an internship for credit at a dance organisation in Florence. In addition to these two courses, we recommend enrolling in an Italian course, and consider expanding your horizons by exploring another artistic field such as photography, culinary arts, music, fashion design, art history, or more!
Music Semester in Italy
Study vocal or instrumental music in Florence, the birthplace of opera and one of Italy’s most important cultural centres as the capital of the region of Tuscany. Musical excellence is part of the very identity of Florence, from the historical influences of Paganini to the hundreds of opera singers, orchestras, and choirs that flourish today. Many courses involve one-on-one individual instruction, the most effective way to develop your musical proficiency. Other courses are taught in small groups. Specific areas of study include opera, Italian vocal styles, diction, intensive Italian language, piano, guitar, and music production. Many other instruments are available upon request as an independent study.
“Florence was a beautiful experience where I learned a lot about the Italian culture and people. Even though I did not take a language course while there, I realized that studying the language was a good technique in order to engage with the people I met and respect the culture.”
