Travel while you can, because those are moments you will never forget, especially if you have the opportunity to study something you love with people that all share a similar passion.

Sarah DeSordi is a junior majoring in Dance, Exercise Science, and Dance Sciences. She participated in an Elon Summer course called Dance with Florence and had the opportunity to tour and perform all over Italy in her professor’s company while receiving credit. She performed on stages as well gardens, and had surreal experiences that will last a lifetime. Sarah felt like the three weeks, during the heat of the summer, was the perfect time to travel. She experienced different parts of Italy and contrasted the artistic culture of the US and Italy. The consistently fresh food was also a huge highlight. She loved being able to travel and form relationships cruising, on a tour bus down the coast, performing, and then relaxing on the beach during free time.

She explained that a lot of people don’t know how many options there are offered in the summer. She, herself, had only heard about trips running in New York and LA before her teacher encouraged her to look into the Florence trip. Sarah’s advice for her peers is to “travel while you can, because those are moments you will never forget, especially if you have the opportunity to study something you love with people that all share a similar passion.”
