Complimentary Ticket Policy

Before each show, Debby Anderson emails everyone in a dance or theatre class so they can order comps in advance. Complimentary tickets are NOT available on the day of the performance.

Everyone enrolled in a dance or theatre class, as well as dance majors, may get a total of one comp ticket for each program-sponsored performance.

If a student is participating in a dance, they can get a total of two tickets.

Tickets are NOT cumulative—each student can receive only up to two tickets per show, no matter their involvement.

The only exception is if the student is doing their senior work; Debby will work with the student directly for up to four (4) tickets per performance.

If the student has any questions about the policy, email Debby Anderson at danderso@middlebury.edu.

Middlebury Performing Arts Series

The Dance Department works closely with Middlebury’s Performing Arts Series (PAS), Vermont’s longest-running performance series. In addition to sharing our spaces, PAS brings notable dance artists to campus who often join our classes and interact with our students and faculty.
