In 2017, the faculty, staff and students of the Department of Theatre and Dance celebrated two milestone anniversaries: 110th anniversary of the Wyatt Pavilion Theatre, the oldest building the UC Davis campus, and the 50th anniversary of the Main Theatre and Wright Hall.
A commemorative slide show was created to provide a brief overview of the department and two of its performance venues.
The UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance in conjunction with the Paul Taylor American Modern Dance Company offers a summer intensive training program. Led by professor and Theatre and Dance chair David Grenke, a former principal dancer with the Paul Taylor Company, this one week Intensive will introduce dancers to Taylor style through daily technique and repertoire classes with former PTDC dancers. Students will also have the opportunity to explore composition and lectures on a variety of dance-related topics.
