Study Abroad Opportunities

SCHOOL OF DANCE & THEATRE TRIP TO DUBLIN & LONDON

WHAT:

Immersion opportunity to experience art forms (dance, theatre, and visual art) and examine
their past and present correlation in two major European cities, Dublin and London.
Students may enroll in any of the following courses, depending on what credits they are trying
to fill: CVPA 266 (1-3 credit hours), THEA 366 (3 hours) or DNCE 366 (3 hours).
Each student will maintain a detailed journal of their activities. At the end of the study each
student will complete a post evaluation of their experiences with the designated faculty
supervisor.

WHO:

While the course is open to any Radford University students, it will be geared toward Dance
and Theatre majors. Deborah McLaughlin (dance) and Robyn Berg (theatre) will be the faculty
supervisors.

WHEN/WHERE:

Another interest meeting will be held early Fall 2017. First deposit will be due shortly
thereafter.

Monthly meetings will occur during Spring 2018 to ensure all paperwork etc. is complete and
two remaining deposits will be due.

The School of Dance & Theatre has worked successfully with the American Institute of Foreign
Studies (AIFS) in the past and has initiated contact for their assistance in the planning of this
trip. Below are sample activities submitted to AIFS, but the itinerary is subject to change:

Tuesday May 15, 2018 = fly from USA to Dublin.

May 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 = Dublin dance/theatre classes & performances such as:

Dublin DANCE: Dublin Dance Festival (International Dance Festival of Ireland), including

HOW MUCH:
Until we gather more information from AIFS and until we know how many students are
enrolling, all costs are estimates. The School of Dance and Theatre Wintermester 2014 trip to
London was between $3,500-$4,000 and we anticipate being in the same ballpark.
