Overview

The Theatre and Dance is an exciting major option within the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. A confluence of acting technique, movement, technical theatre, directing and theatre and dance history, THTR & DNCE endeavors to develop your myriad skills to create a whole artist and scholar.

The basic sequence of required courses is designed to provide the student with a theoretical/historical grounding in the art of the theatre and dance and the opportunity to put theories into practice in performance situations. But the program is so much more; the University offers world-class opportunities for the students and patrons. 

Students have the chance to work at THEATREWORKS, a professional regional theatre company, travel to London and New York, meet some of the world's greatest theatre and dance practitioners during their visits for the Prologue Lecture Series and devise, direct and create in the Overlook Dance and Movement Studio and Osborne Studio Theatre.
