ABOUT DANCE ITALIA

Founded in 2011 by  Stefanie Nelson, Dance Italia has established itself as a vibrant community of international students, performers, educators, and choreographers who gather in Agropoli and Lucca, Italy each summer. The Festival now in its seventh edition, offers a rigorous dance experience in a supportive atmosphere, fostering a creative exchange of ideas and encouraging exploration of diverse approaches to movement arts. Four, week-long Master Class workshops accompany a core technique schedule, complemented by discussions, informal showings and performances.

With support from our university partners, Indiana University and Sam Houston State University, Dance Italia has welcomed over 200 students from 18 countries around the world, and has performed for over 1000 spectators to date.
