This article investigates sustaining dance education in light of the Syrian Civil War, exploring questions such as: How might dance education continue when one is in exile? What happens when exile, dance, and education intersect? This article seeks to untangle these broad queries in relation to the experiences of three dancers from Syria—Sara, Leila and Nadia. These dancers are now re-establishing their lives as dance practitioners in Germany.
