Performance, Production, and Community Major (BA)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Academic Programs

The Department of Performance, Production, and Community is a place for makers. Our program provides opportunities for dancers, musicians, actors, composers, directors, designers, and producers to collaborate on dynamic works of art. Grounded in theater and dance training and practice, we encourage students to create across disciplines. Your artistry and your creative and critical problem-solving skills will expand through strategic collaborations across the disciplines of dance, theater, and music, with additional opportunities to make connections with students in creative writing, digital storytelling, and digital and studio arts. Drawing from the diverse wealth of performing arts in the Twin Cities, we want you working in the community, creating with and for communities on campus and beyond. We want to give you the space, support, and theoretical grounding to engage with the world, knock down barriers and disciplinary boundaries, hone your craft, and operate as an artist and maker for whatever field and profession you choose in your lifetime. We focus on how performing artists are always practicing collaboration, creating community and creating for community.

Production and ensemble experience (4 credits):

Students complete four experiences for 1 credit each.

LEAP experience (4 credits):

Four credits of LEAP (Hamlin Plan P) will be fulfilled by a student undertaking an internship in the Twin Cities; or participating in a community-engaged practice experience; or through an independent study which can serve as a capstone experience in performance.
