The world of stage performance -- a challenging and exhilarating realm that conjures up the vision, rage, wit, and feeling of thousands of years of dramatists, choreographers and performers -- is open to all students through Macalester's Department of Theatre and Dance. Unlike conservatory training, which concentrates primarily on performance techniques, Macalester's commitment to the liberal arts gives students an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective, along with outstanding instruction in the theater and dance arts contained within a thorough exposure to the humanities, arts and sciences. Although the demands of theater are broad, so are the resources available in the Theatre and Dance Department at Macalester College.
