Support UNLV Dance Summer Travel

The UNLV Department of Dance is going places--LITERALLY!  Several dance students have been invited to participate in international locations this coming summer.  These are exciting activities for our dancers and opportunities for them to share their expertise on an international stage!

Six students from UNLV Dance will travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean to bring dance to the island. These students will spend ten days performing, teaching master classes in local schools, conducting workshops at local recreation centers, and performing lecture demonstrations.  This is a wonderful way to share their knowledge and love of dance!

In addition, four dance majors will get the opportunity to travel to Copenhagen, Denmark, for multiple performances.  These students will work directly with UNLV Dance faculty in preparing for these performances, which affords them the experience of working as professionals by touring, performing, and training along side other professionals.

Both of these trips are rare opportunities for students to combine learning and teaching with the experience of international travel, touring, and functioning as artists in the global world.  Please help our dancers get there!
