Welcome to the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance (MTD). We are thrilled that you will be joining our community of performers, scholars, technicians, educators, and artists! At MTD, we believe that music, theatre, and dance really are Better Together, and the innovative thinkers and trailblazers you will soon be engaging with are proactively collaborating to push the performing arts forward. Our faculty and staff are committed to ensuring an inspiring learning environment for our talented students and we are excited about the opportunities you will soon have to connect with fellow students in our School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and across Ithaca College. We cannot wait to see you in August! In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to our Dean's Office with any questions as you prepare.
