Paris is possibly the most exciting place for a student of dance to study both technique and dance history. The city is filled with history of collaborations between dance artists and visual artists as well as the influence of American dance artists who lived and thrived in Paris. Dance in Paris is designed to immerse the dance enthusiast in a unique program of study combining technique classes at various dance académies and conservatoires in Paris with a course in special topics related to dance history and cultural sites.
The Académie Américaine de Danse de Paris (AADP), under the direction of Brooke Desnoës, will partner with the Florida State University School of Dance to provide a homebase for the Florida State Dance in Paris Study Abroad program. Located in the heart of Paris, students will have the opportunity to take technique classes at AADP and interact with the school's students and distinguished faculty.
