Overview

At the same time that you develop practical skills in technique and performance, your core classes in the humanities, and math and sciences will help you develop into an articulate, literate, and socially aware citizen. 

The goal of our Dance and Theatre program at Manhattanville College is to enliven the mind, and express the creative spirit that lies within us all. Your studies will combine knowledge with experience, exploration of technique with study of performance history, theory and critical research. 

This mode of study is comparable to the relationship between lecture and laboratory in liberal arts science courses, such as Biology.
