Department of Theatre and Dance

  • UAA Department of Theatre & Dance

    Production is at the very center of our award-winning Theatre & Dance program. Each season we produce both plays and dance concerts in our Mainstage Theatre and Jerry Harper Studio Theatre. Department plays are cast at open auditions; on average, more than 50 majors, non-majors and members of the community are involved each year.

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 Occupational Endorsement Certificate in Event Production 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.
