PLUNGE: Performance-based Seminar Program for International F-1 Students

PLUNGE is a weekly seminar course that uses Dance Theater principles to deliver material and performance strategies to enhance each individual dance artist’s abilities.

• The first portion of class will focus on preparing the performing body through exercises focused on the musculoskeletal system, mind-body connection, and self-care. 
By adopting yoga philosophies, the class draws in keen body awareness, flexibility, strength, power, and balance.
