Things in motion sooner catch the eye than what stirs not.

Student-centered learning is a hallmark of the College of Charleston and especially in the Department of Theatre and Dance. Our students aren't just numbers - but close partners in an artistic community formed and shaped in the classroom, in the studio and in our productions.
