First or second-year students interested in exploring Theater, Dance & Media may wish to consider the following possible (but in no way comprehensive) clusters of courses to investigate the concentration.
You might start with a Gen Ed course, or try a Freshman Seminar that explores storytelling or acting, or delve into the intersection of theater and politics, or take an introductory course on acting, moving, or performance.
Consider expanding your training and knowledge by taking a movement course, a directing workshop, a course that looks at experimental theater, or a devised theater studio course. And, of course, advanced acting at some point.
Consider enrolling in a dance composition course, or a course on Avant-Garde Theater, in which dance has played a significant role, or take on course on dance in cultural context, a beginning acting course, or experiment with devised theater.
There are a number of dance/movement classes, both credit and non-credit, in which non-dancers are encouraged to participate, to add their perspective, to gain experience about the awesome instrument we all have the privilege of occupying from birth to death.
No group is more sought after at Harvard than skilled theater/dance designers and technicians. There are multiple courses here that will hone your skills and lead you to understand the importance of stage craft and design.
