dance performance with ribbons

Welcome from the Chair

The Department of Theatre and Dance is a special place full of vibrancy, curiosity, and tenacity. Here, students can find the foundation of a liberal arts education with the professional and creative skills needed to thrive as an artist, all within the inclusive environment of Montclair State University. It is our mission to produce well-equipped, flexible, inspired artist-thinkers who are socially aware and personally responsible.

You will study learn and create in exceptional performance and teaching facilities – from the state-of-the-art Alexander Kasser Theater to fully equipped dance studios and shops. Renowned faculty and guest artists will inspire and mentor you as you grow and develop as a theatre and dance professional. Our faculty are deeply committed to their own creative, teaching, and scholarly practices, and you are invited to dive in with them and learn together as we all explore and apply innovative methods and techniques towards an ever-evolving discipline.

We invite you to dive into our website and envision yourself as part of our Theatre and Dance community. Please come visit us or check out a performance to see us in action.
