    Dance Performance

    Working with European teachers has been illuminating to my artistic development.

The dancers and the actors alike have discussed how despite sometimes having a language barrier in class,...

    Spring 2013

    While studying at the Accademia, I have been surprised by how many people in Arezzo do not speak English—this makes going out on the town challenging, but also works as an invitation to put my Italian language skills into practice. I was also surprised by how healthy the food is here—with dreams of piles...

    Gabrielle, Grace, Sophie, Allie and Morgan at the Ponte Vecchio in Firenze.

    Though there have been a lot of fantastic things about studying abroad, one of the things I think I will miss the most about this experience is the incredible and supportive community that exists here at the ADA. From the very first open mike night back in September, it was so cool to see...

    Mai Ai Training

      The notion of straining the entirety of my academic experience at the Accademia down to a mere blog post is not one that I’d care to entertain.

    Joust Fun

    Some of my absolute favorite things that happen at the Accademia are the open mics/cabarets. They are awesome events where the any of the students/professors can gather together and perform acts of their design which are then all strung into one big plot. It’s so much fun to see what people come up with...

I took 2 semesters of Italian last summer and remembered a little, but I think actually being immersed in the culture and hearing people talk to each other a million miles a minute was intimidating...
