About The Dance and Drama Department



In dance, the medium of expression is movement, and the instrument is the human body. Dance education goes beyond studying a repertoire of movements to offering an understanding of the principles and concepts that govern and define the art. Technique is the foundation of the dance curriculum. Technique emphasizes the importance of physiological and safety factors while leading to a fuller use of the body and all its parts, stimulating creative and expressive abilities.



The study of dramatic arts provides students with an opportunity to take on roles, to create and enter into imagined worlds, and to learn in a unique way about themselves, the art of drama, and the world around them. By communicating in both real and imagined situations, students develop proficiency in listening, speaking, questioning, and negotiating. Through the process of “stepping into the shoes of another”, students develop and express empathy. Analysis of dramatic works reveals​ the universal aspects of human experience.
