Facilities for the Arts

Goodhart Hall, which houses the Office of the Arts, is the College’s main performance space for theater and dance. The theater has a proscenium stage with options for thrust and studio theater formats. There are also nontraditional spaces on campus for productions of an intimate and/or experimental nature. The College has a dance studio over Pembroke Arch, which also serves as a smaller performance space, as well as a new smaller studio in Denbigh.

While the M. Carey Thomas Great Hall provides a large space for concerts, lectures and readings, the Goodhart Music Room is used for ensemble rehearsals and intimate chamber music recitals. Students may reserve time in the four practice rooms in Goodhart, all of which are furnished with grand pianos.

Arnecliffe Studio houses the program in painting and printmaking, and Rockefeller Hall houses two drafting studios devoted to architectural studies and theater design.

Creative writing classes, workshops, and readings take place in English House and the M. Carey Thomas Great Hall.
