Guest Artists

The Ursinus College Theater and Dance Department regularly brings professional artists to campus to teach and collaborate with our students. 

Our guest artists include professional choreographers, directors, designers, musicians, and music directors, among others. Guest artists teach classes and conduct intensive rehearsals with students, culminating in theater productions or performances for the Ursinus College Dance Company (UCDC) Concert.

Dance residencies offer our students the opportunity to study and perform a wide range of dance forms, including: ballet, jazz, modern, African dance, Hip Hop, tap dance, dance theater, contact improvisation, ballroom dance and others. Theater residencies invite students to collaborate with directors and designers working across a range of genres, styles, and periods.
