Welcome to the Carleton Department of Theater + Dance!

The Department of Theater + Dance offers courses in each of the major areas of interest.

Theater courses include acting, voice, movement, directing, design-technical and performance, as well as literature, history and criticism. In all of our courses our goal is to examine how critical thought and creative practice intersect. Theater is an ever-changing art. We strive to expose students to its most recent innovations and the cultural currents that influence them.

Dance gives students at all levels opportunities for participation in three basic areas: technique, choreography and analysis, and performance. Our broadest goal is to increase understanding of the art of dance as a contribution to a liberal arts education and to connect theory and practice through embodied learning.
