Syracuse University Musical Drama Department

Musical theater is one of the most exciting and demanding professions in the performing arts. As a musical theater performer, you must possess strong technical skills in acting, voice, music, and dance and the ability to integrate these skills with ease, expressiveness, and versatility.

Our bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) degree program focuses on the development of your individual talents and abilities with the aim of helping you to discover your uniqueness as a musical theater artist. This rigorous program requires coursework in three areas of performance—singing, dancing, and acting—as well as foundations in liberal arts and theater history.

Syracuse Dance Culture

Creations has a history of being an inclusive group. It was founded more than 40 years ago by 10 women of color when African-American students were not given the opportunity to showcase their talents in other groups.

Today, the group differentiates itself from other campus dance groups by having a small company that performs everything from jazz to hip-hop, but continues to honor its past by performing an African-gospel dance in its annual show at the end of the fall semester.
