In addition to its academic work, the department annually produces more than a dozen plays, films, dance concerts, and other performance events in its three theaters. Our program offers studies in the theory and cultural context of dance, encourages original choreographic work, provides a variety of performing opportunities for students at all levels of experience, and builds a strong and versatile technique in dance.The major in theater combines the study of dramatic literature from the Greeks to the present with work in acting, directing, dance, design, and film. Students thus acquire skills in production and performance while learning the history and literature of one of the world’s major forms of artistic expression.
