Academics

Performing arts students interested in deepening their practice of theater, dance, or music will find a unique opportunity in the heart of Tuscany with Accademia dell'Arte. The program resembles a conservatory in that its principal focus is the practical realization of performance projects. Courses include Italian language; history, philosophy, and literature of Italian theater; design, scene painting, costume design, commedia/ mask; commedia skills; voice and performance; and studio/production.

Prior to the start of the main academic program, students will enroll in a four-week language intensive class sponsored by the University of Siena's branch campus in Arezzo.

Each fall in partnership with the Furman University Department of Music, the Accademia dell'Arte hosts a one-semester music program. Students take classes with visiting music faculty from Furman University and with local Italian applied music teachers. Music courses include: Music history, Applied Music Lessons, Conducting, Philosophy of Art and Performance.

Each spring in partnership with the Muhlenberg College & Goucher College Departments of Dance, the Accademia dell'Arte hosts a one-semester dance program. This unique dance program offers students the opportunity to combine high-level studio dance training in technique and contemporary dance choreography with the world of popular Mediterranean dance forms linked to Tarantismo. The program includes special topics and workshops including Feldenkreis and an intensive Butoh workshop. Other courses include Dance Technique and Performance, Tarantismo & Popular Dance, Italian language, and the Philosophy of Art and Performance.
