About Us

Theatre & Dance at the University at Buffalo engages emerging artists, scholars, and audiences dedicated to sustaining and innovating the performing arts across disciplines. Our diverse programs integrate rigorous training, critical understanding, and impassioned creation supported by close faculty mentorship and developed in collaboration with internationally recognized guest artists.

Learning within conservatory style courses and grounded in the liberal arts, students acquire the essential skills for effective communication, collaborative problem-solving, and critical perspective in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world. The Department’s production season of fully produced plays, musicals, dance concerts, and experimental performance work is integral to the training of new artists, and provides an essential cultural resource for the larger campus community.

Theatre & Dance not only prepares UB students for professional careers in the performing arts, but also fosters thoughtful individuals prepared to engage in the global discussions of the 21st century.
