In addition to rigorous course work, theatre and dance students have numerous opportunities to hone their craft by being involved in mainstage and dance productions.

Education at Wittenberg—Experience for the world

Theatre and dance invigorate every corner of Wittenberg’s campus, from contact improvisation exploding across the stage to experimental pieces in alternative spaces, from major Broadway musicals and ballet to student-written plays and hip-hop dance. Wittenberg’s diverse course offerings grant student artists and scholars robust classroom and laboratory environments.
