Philadelphia - Studio Courses
The Program has a small fund each semester that provides some support to students working at intermediate or advanced technique levels to either supplement Dance Program courses in which they are enrolled or to work at a more advanced level in a technique that is not offered at the College. Students take classes in approved city or regional studios.
Philadelphia - Semester in the city: Headlong Performance Institute
HPI students come from across the country and abroad and train, create, perform, and see work (including a full schedule of performances in the Live Arts/Philly Fringe Festival) in the heart of Philadelphia's vibrant and internationally-known performance scene. Students also benefit from professional mentoring through their "Life of the Artist" series and earn a full semester of undergraduate credit through Bryn Mawr College.

As with many semester abroad programs, students may apply to study in established programs currently associated with our own or other undergraduate institutions. Our students have enrolled in semester-long studies at Trinity Laban in London, in Paris, and at DanceJerusalem, a program initiated by the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Rothberg International School (RIS). Students have also studied in Italy and elected to do semesters 'abroad' in Hawai'i, and New York City. Our consortial partner, Swarthmore College, offers a program in Ghana. If students elect to pursue other academic studies abroad, we work with them to find ways to continue their dance studies as well.
