The theater and dance program at Bowdoin offers students the opportunity to examine the ways in which theater and dance provoke the imagination, tell stories, create community, and challenge assumptions.
Emphasis is placed on theater and dance’s fundamental connection to the liberal arts curriculum at Bowdoin, as well as theater and dance literacy, performance skills, and an understanding of historical and social influences on drama and dance. The aim is to develop imaginative theater practitioners who collaboratively solve problems of form and content with a passionate desire to express the human condition on stage.
No prior experience is expected to participate in Theater and Dance at Bowdoin.
