The Theater and Dance Department at Amherst College believes that the study and making of performances provides students with transformative experiences in creative problem solving, play, critical thinking, and interpersonal communication. Combined with liberal arts study, engaging with theater and dance increases awareness of the way our senses, bodies, actions, and imaginations interact to enhance our understanding of the world and one another.
