Dancers at Gallatin

The Gallatin Interdisciplinary Arts Program, modeled on the artist-scholar/scholar-artist philosophy of education, enables students to design programs combining academic and creative work in the arts. The arts curriculum includes more than 20 different workshops each semester in music, dance, theater, the visual arts, architecture and design. Outside of the classroom, students may intern in arts agencies and performance companies and study at various private studios in New York City.  Annually, the arts program sponsors the Gallatin Arts Festival, a week-long, community-wide celebration of the artistry of students at the Gallatin School.  Located at Gallatin, the Gallatin Galleries provide a year-long venue for the exhibition of art work by students, faculty and working artists. The Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts is a black box theater showcasing student performances and other productions during the academic year. Gallatin also houses a rehearsal room for dance and other performance and an arts studio for painting, drawing, and architectural design.
