Theatre and Dance
Students reach new heights with Episcopal's thriving Theatre and Dance program.
The study of theatre and dance plays a huge role in positive social development. It's a vital component of our holistic education, providing Lower, Middle, and Upper School students with a grounded, experiential, and cross-curricular education.
The Episcopal Academy Department of Theatre and Dance empowers students to experience the performing arts as a form of communication and self-expression by offering students a safe and diverse exploration of the theory, creation, and practice of performance.
