Life at Summer TUTTI is full of new experiences. During the days, you work hard — with people who are as passionate about the performing arts as you are, immersed in workshops, practices, and rehearsals. In the evenings, you hang out with new friends and experience life on Denison’s beautiful college campus.
Life at Denison
You will live and learn on Denison University’s beautiful campus, just up the hill from the center of Granville, a beautiful New England-style town.
The Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts, built with performing arts collaborations in mind, is your educational homebase. Denison’s Dance, Music and Theatre programs are located here, along with a 400-seat venue, large rehearsal spaces, individual music instruction room, set and costume design workshops, and much, much more. Check out Eisner’s Sights and Sounds page to see just some of the performing arts events (and fun) that happen here.
