Spring Semester Dance Program
Each spring semester Accademia dell’Arte offers a unique, dynamic dance program designed in partnership with Professor Karen Dearborn at Muhlenberg College.
Working intimately with a variety of European artists, students will have the opportunity to explore various approaches in order to further develop their personal dance expression, technique and their creativity.

The Accademia dell’Arte campus is located at Villa Godiola, a restored renaissance villa just outside Arezzo. Both the center of Arezzo and the city train station are readily accessible and are approximately 20 minute and 40 minutes walks, respectively (although times differ with each student’s pace). Taxis can be called from campus and a typical taxi ride to the train station costs about €10.
What are the rooms like?
We have double and triple rooms on campus. While we cannot guarantee one standard of housing, all accommodations are of a high caliber.
