For more detailed information about our course offerings, requirements, faculty, and more, please visit our homepage.

The Theater and Dance Department offers students, both major and non-major, the opportunity to undertake intensive study in theater, dance, and performance art in New York City. The program, which takes place in the fall semester, includes high-level professional training, internships with major theater and dance companies, as well as exploratory seminars. Through these activities, students will be exposed to some of the most innovative and accomplished performing artists in New York (see course descriptions for Theater/Dance 401, 403, and 405 for additional details).

Selected students may extend their semester to a year-long course of study. Further information is available through Professor Judy Dworin of the Theater and Dance Department.

Ellen Stewart founded La MaMa Experimental Theater Club (E.T.C.) in 1961 to nurture and encourage the creative endeavors of new artists. During its nearly four decades, La MaMa has become a leading center for theatrical experimentation in America and an internationally recognized vehicle for the creation of new work. More than 2,000 different productions of theater, dance, music, and mixed media have been presented at La MaMa E.T.C. in New York, and La MaMa troupes have toured 21 countries. La MaMa productions have been honored with more than 50 OBIE Awards, dozens of Drama Desk Awards, Bessie Awards, and Villager Awards.
