Top five Frequently Asked Questions:
How can I talk to someone about the program/get connected with faculty/schedule a visit? TAPS faculty are always happy to make themselves available to meet with prospective students to discuss the program. Please make contact well in advance of your preferred date with one of our advisors via email to discuss logistics.
Do I need to audition? No. As a liberal arts program, it's not appropriate for us to hold auditions. If you are accepted at Brown, all of our Department's activities and offerings will be open to you. We do recommend a visit so that you can take the campus tour and sit in on a class to observe our students, faculty and staff in action.
Can I send in audio/visual materials to supplement my application?
Auditions and portfolio reviews are neither required nor reviewed for students interested in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies. If you choose to send in supplementary materials, please mail items to the Office of College Admission, PO Box 1876, Providence, RI 02912. If you have a YouTube video we recommend sending a link to email@example.com.
Does TAPS offer a concentration in Dance? There is no separate dance major or concentration track, but you can focus on dance academically within the Theatre Arts, Performance Studies or Writing for Performance tracks. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions about on-campus dance offerings.
What performance opportunities are available to me in TAPS? There are many opportunities to perform for both concentrators and non-concentrators in TAPS. Go to our Performances and Events page to see details on our current season. We also list auditions in our News section.
