DANCE

Dance Study Tour

Each year the dance strand of the School provides an overseas experience opportunity for students under the unit code ACM337. In 2012, the Dance Study Tour to Indonesia was one of the most successful study tours taken by Deakin students. A group of 8 dance students experienced the dance of two Indonesian regions in studios in Sumatra and Java, and were able to learn aspects of two important forms: the seudati from Aceh and the tari golek from Yogyarkarta. They met and became friends with their teachers and other local students and dancers. Dancing provided them with a highly rewarding experience of cultural immersion and cultural exchange.

In 2013 the planned study tour destination is New York, the centre of modern dance culture and practice. Watch this space.
