About the Program

The dance minor is dedicated to the study of dance in the context of a broad based liberal arts education. The goal of the minor is to create well rounded dance artists who are: effective collaborators, literate in the study of dance (written, verbal and in practical), and are able to critically analyze dance performance. We strive to develop sensitive artists able to recognize some of the many influences which help to inform and shape dance today and who can incorporate these ideas into the creation of a dance piece. We feel that it is important to encourage students to explore these many aspects, intellectually and physically in a classroom setting and on-stage in performance.

      DanceTheatre ArtsTheatre - Internship Program: Theatre Semester

      A 12-credit package of internship experience and independent study with an established profesional theatre company in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. Open only to qualified Drew theatre arts majors. Students interning with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey usually do the program from early May through mid-December, receiving 12 credits in the fall semester (normally of the senior year). Students interning with other theatres participate in the second or final (if finishing all graduation requirements in the fall) semester of their senior year after completing all of the requirements for the theatre arts major. At most 12 credits from internships in theatre and the Theatre Semester (THEA 387/388) mau be counted toward the degree. Therefore, students expecting to participate in the Theatre Semester should not take any internship credits. Those who do internships and then decide to enroll in THEA 387/388 have the credits for THEA 387 reduced proportionally by the amount of internship credit earned or must exceed the minimum number of credits required for the B.A. degree by the amount of internship credits. Students can enroll in THEA 197/198 once only, choosing either to intern with the Shakespeare Theatre of N.J. or a theatre approved by the department.
