College of Fine Arts and Communications

  • BYU dancer Montana Shugars recently traveled to Italy to train at one of the leading ballet schools in the world, La Scala Opera Ballet School, as part of a study abroad. Shugars said her experience taught her to focus less on herself as a performer and more on the audience.
