Theatre & Dance.


Theatre and Dance

The Department of Theatre and Dance trains you in the full range of theatrical disciplines, providing you with mentorship and support in creative expression, critical thinking and personal development. Our goal is to create total theatre artists.

Theatre Arts Major

The Theatre department at Drew is dedicated to a broad-based study of the history, literature, theory and practice of theatre and its various disciplines in the context of an overall liberal arts education. Students grow as artists through rigorous academic courses, internships, exciting opportunities for professional collaboration and an extensive co-curricular production program that centers on student initiative.

Dance Minor

The Dance Minor strives to create well-rounded dancers and choreographers who are effective collaborators, literate in the study of dance and able to critically analyze dance and movement through research and performance. We develop artists who can recognize the many cultural and social influences that help to inform and shape dance today and can integrate these ideas into the creation of dance.

Clowning is a very particular kind of theater centered around the idea of physical manifestation, rather than an intellectual approach. It is such a mercurial way of acting. I love it. ”
