Choreomundus is the program that gave me an opportunity to see and understand dance in a different dimension. My concepts of dance were very limited and narrow compared to the vast amount of information, activities, research, and work being done in this area today. So far the Choreomundus International Master degree has allowed me to see dance and to explore it in a completely different light. Learning new concepts, theories, and perceptions of its importance in everyday society, have given me a wide range of ideas and possibilities for future endeavors. It has shown me that there is an entire world of academia and opportunities to be discovered in dance knowledge, movement, and intangible heritage. Choreomundus is allowing me to combine my passions for international relations and dance in a way that I thought could not be possible. And I could not forget about the opportunities of studying and getting to live in Hungary, Norway, France, and the UK. I have had the opportunity to travel to more than 30 countries and the grandeur of the Hungarian architecture definitely one of the most breathtaking I have seen. And I could not forget to mention the opportunity to experience the particularly rich cultural heritage. So excited for the upcoming semesters and to get to explore more about dance, culture and the different methods of study in each university. Which so far has given us a taste of the different ways of life, research and academic processes that take place in each country.
