Theatre and Dance

Find your artistic voice. Think critically. Collaborate imaginatively. Realize the inspirations that will shape your creative future.

Take a risk.

Be part of the show or sign up for a class. At Beloit, dance and theatre students come from all walks of life and experience levels. You can participate as a major, a minor, or as someone who's just trying your hand at the performing arts.

Focus your passion.

Choose from three areas or mix and match. Dance students experience movement in a supportive environment where our faculty work with students to become insightful dancers who engage with the real world. Productions students bring stories to life by constructing, designing, and managing the physical and ephemeral elements of the theatrical space. Theatre performance students investigate their own lives and experiences to develop compassion for the characters they play.

Imagine the possibilities.

Our program is rigorous and positive, helping you hone your technique, speak your artistic truth, and identify your unique gifts. The Department of Theatre and Dance believes your personal development and empathy for others enriches your imaginative possibilities. Small classes and one-on-one relationships with faculty enable you to refine your artistic message using theory, history and interdisciplinary perspectives. At the end of four years, you will be ready to launch a creative professional and personal life.
