RIT Kosovo Peace and Conflict Summer Program Introduces dance into the program

We are excited to announce that we are adding dance to the curriculum within the summer program!

Have you ever wanted to use dance as a means to understand, create and spread awareness about peace and conflict? Through this program, you have the opportunity to create and perform choreography in post-conflict locations, bringing up conversations where there’s sometimes silence.

Work with some of the best dancers, choreographers, and teachers in Prishtina, Kosovo. Study choreography, ballet, modern, somatics (yoga/pilates), contemporary, partnering, improvisation, and composition.

Through powerful potential of dance, we unveil social issues and take steps towards change, leading to a final professional performance on aspects of peace and conflict at the end of the program.

Each dancer receives individualized attention and is given the time and structure to develop their artistry.

This is an opportunity to have a true dance company experience with principal dancers of the Kosovo National Ballet and an award-winning international choreographer.
