Theatre & Dance

The Department of Theatre & Dance at Converse College inspires, entertains, and challenges audiences with live performances that enhance our capacity for empathy and illuminate our common humanity. We train and support the next generation of performing artists by providing programs that promote intellectual curiosity, creativity and life-long learning. The stage is our laboratory, a place where we grow and create in community.

We celebrate the essential power of theatre and dance to connect us to one another and to our  larger world.

Our theatre productions build upon 114 years of excellence and continue today, through our producing company Theatre Converse. Dance performance extends 40 years of tradition, discipline and talent through Dance Converse. Our primary focus in the classroom, in rehearsal, and in live performance is to give student artists the opportunities and support to succeed. Discover more about our majors and minors through the link below, and then contact us for a campus visit. We’re eager to meet you!
