Facilities for the Arts

Goodhart Hall, which houses the Office of the Arts, is the College's main performance space for theater and dance. Performance spaces in Goodhart include the McPherson Theater, which has a proscenium stage with state-of-the art lighting and sound capabilities and auditorium-style seating; the Katharine Hepburn Teaching Theater, a flexible space with stage lighting and sound capabilities; the Music Room, equipped with a small stage and two pianos and used for ensemble rehearsals and chamber-music recitals; and the multipurpose Common Room

Students may also reserve time in the four practice rooms in Goodhart, all of which are furnished with grand pianos.

The M. Carey Thomas Great Hall provides a large space for concerts, lectures and readings, while the Pembroke Dance studio and a smaller studio in Denbigh serve as more intimate performance spaces. Wyndham Alumnae House's Ely Room and English House host creative-writing classes, workshops, and readings.

Arnecliffe Studio houses a printmaking studio, and Rockefeller Hall houses two drafting studios devoted to architectural studies and theater design.
