Department of Theatre and Dance
We Take Centerstage
The Theatre and Dance Department offers a comprehensive liberal arts education in both theatre and dance, in which students may choose to pursue either a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre or a minor in Dance. In addition to honing performance and technical production skills, students will learn how to: collaborate and communicate with peers to problem solve complex situations, demonstrate theories based on historical and cultural foundations, and analyze artistic works within a informed critical framework. Please note that the BA program and the dance minor are currently suspended due to UAA budget cuts.

Secrets Under the Skin
"Secrets" is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary art installation created by seven artists that premiered December, 2010 in Havana, Cuba, and January, 2011 in Anchorage, Alaska.
The installation, comprised of media, visual art, photographs and -- when possible -- live performance art and live performance, is based on extensive years of fieldwork in Ghana and Cuba by Dr. Jill Flanders Crosby.
