MISSION STATEMENT  

The Theatre & Dance department supports the Ohlone College mission and is committed to providing professional instruction in theatre and dance in the safety of an educational environment. We offer opportunities to explore all facets of the human condition through these art forms as we foster the next generation of theatre and dance artists. We do this free from political or social ideologies and dogma; focusing instead on freedom of expression and the universality of the human experience — which creates empathy, understanding, and unity, thereby transcending all barriers that divide us.
