Experiental Learning in Theatre & Dance



If you love the theatre and performing, you know it’s hard work. Before the bright lights of the stage and audience applause, there are rehearsals; sets, costumes, and lighting plans to design and create; choreography to develop; and advertising to execute. At Southeast, that work is done for the most part by our students.

With six major, faculty-directed/choreographed productions, four second stage productions, numerous cabarets and showcases, student-directed one-acts and staged readings, and student choreographed dance concerts there’s a lot to be done so that the show can go on. Our courses offer the knowledge and allow you to perfect the technique because you’re doing the work for every production.

In addition to classes, experiential learning opportunities abound. In summer 2018, our students performed at the prestigious New York Musical Festival an original work written by one of our faculty members and a student that first debuted at the River Campus! And if all that weren’t enough, we still have many more opportunities to put whatever your talent to work, including:

  • River Campus Summer Arts Festival, the Holland School’s professional summer stock company
  • Outside Professional Employment
  • Competitive Internships
  • University photoshoots and videos
  • Faultline Film Festival
  • Visiting Guest Artist Master Classes
  • Professional Residencies
  • Conventions and Festivals
  • Annual New York City and Los Angeles Showcases for select graduating seniors
