Coming Up

People are in perpetual motion, in search of home in places where cultures collide and are reinvented in new forms of expression. 

Social commentary embedded in performance can operate like a stealth mission.

Love the drama, size and dynamic range of a symphony? Let us expand your idea of an orchestra. 

Arts experiences in unexpected settings and innovative combinations engage your senses in new and surprising ways.

Career Development

The Hop is much more than a place for arts students and visiting performers. It is also a vital hub where students, faculty and the Dartmouth community connect and share ideas.

The Hop & Call to Lead

As part of The Call to Lead: a campaign for Dartmouth, a strategic investment of $75 million will be made to the historic performing arts center. More than $15 million has already been generously committed by members and friends of the Hop. The expansion will further animate the burgeoning Arts District as an internationally recognized center of creativity and experiential learning.
