Dance embraces the entire globe. Universities offer world dance classes to expose students to various styles and educators travel to different countries to experience how dance is viewed, performed, and taught in different cultures. In this article nine dance educators share their experiences of teaching and observing dance abroad. These accounts give us insights about how other religions and governments view dance, how folk dance reflects national pride and is preserved, how dance is an integral part of physical education, and how the study of other cultures can improve educators' teaching methods.
