Our Philosophy:

Like the natural sciences and the humanities, the arts are a way of knowing and a kind of knowledge. Music, Dance and Theatre develop the natural, primitive communion of our minds and bodies into complex skills that create patterns of sound and movement we call music, acting or dance. These arts are enhanced with crafts practiced by scenic and lighting designers, carpenters, electricians, sound engineers and costume and makeup artists. The performing arts are at once personal and social, lonely and collaborative. They generate community and depend upon it. Teaching these arts (and learning them) involves individuals exploring and shaping their whole selves into art for their own and their audiences' growth and entertainment. To teach, practice and promote the performing arts is the calling of our faculty, in which they are supported by the department's staff and administrator.
