The School of Film, Dance and Theatre educates and advises students in the literatures, theories, histories and practices of contemporary filmmaking, theatrical performance, dance and related fields. Our teaching, research, creative activity and professional service enrich the cultural life of the University, the community, the state and the region, extending beyond our borders; and move the arts of theatre, dance and film production into the future by building on their diverse histories and cultural contexts.


The ASU School of Film, Dance and Theatre is widely recognized as one of the most innovative producers of performing arts and artists in North America. The highly experienced international faculty and staff offer a broad approach to developing artists, educators and scholars who are actively engaged with the rapidly expanding range of global contexts for artistic practice; from performance to education, from community to online contexts. We recognize and value the creativity and meaning that each student brings to the program.
