Accademia Europea di Firenze
The best way to learn Italian Language, Culture and the Arts in Florence

The Accademia Europea di Firenze is a School of Italian Arts, Language and Culture. Founded in 2005 as an Italian language school for foreigners, over time our school has expanded and transformed to now offer students courses of Italian art and culture, music and dance.
AEF also offers Certificate Programs in Voice & Opera, Drawing & Painting, Dance, and Italian Language & Culture, as well as Study Abroad Programs in collaboration with prestigious American Universities, intensive Summer and Winter Programs and Joint Academic Programs developed with universities from all over the world.
Deeply rooted in Italian history and culture, but compliant with European academic standards, our school is enhanced by our experiential learning approach and the top quality of our faculty, which contribute to the creation of an international community in the city of Renaissance and universal beauty.

The Dance Ensemble course is based on the creation of a new dance by a guest choreographer that will be performed at the end of the semester in the final student performance. Classes will be presented as rehearsals in choreography with a previous abridged warm-up and ballet barre in order to insure proper physical preparedness. The students are required to attend every rehearsal as well as technical and dress rehearsals in order to insure the maximum experience from the Dance Ensemble course.
