Lipscomb's Department of Theatre celebrates their many collaborations with professional theatre companies in Nashville, both on Lipscomb's stages and on theirs, too. We believe both of these special programs add significantly to our burgeoning theatre program, extending educational opportunities beyond the classroom. Learn more about these exciting companies by clicking on the tab to the left.

We also house a resident dance company called Foundation Dance Theatre, whose mission is to create movement that tells strong stories and explore all styles of dance including jazz, modern, tap, Broadway jazz, hip-hop, and more. Be sure to browse that tab for photos and information.

One of our most exciting programs is the Nashville High School Musical Theatre Awards, or the Spotlight Awards, which began in 2013. This program, which stepped up a level in 2016 with a special partnership with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, unites 25 Tennessee high school musical theatre programs, allowing for adjudication, special workshops, and an exceptional awards ceremony at TPAC's Andrew Jackson Hall. Visit the link to the left to learn more about this tremendous program that brings in over 1,000 student participants every year.
