Curricular Connections

In the 2017/2018 Season, the Hopkins Center is pleased to continue its partnership with the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) to support faculty who include Hop programming in their syllabus. In recognition of the unique experiential value that the performing arts bring to classroom curriculum, DCAL can underwrite the ticket costs for your class to attend a Hop Visiting Artist, Student Ensemble or Theater Department performance, or a MET Opera and National Theatre Live HD broadcast. If your students are required to attend—and there are no departmental or other funds to cover ticket costs—you are eligible for support from the DCAL/Hop Experiential Learning Fund. Funding is first-come, first-served and faculty tickets will continue to be underwritten by the Hop. You and your students will be invited to reflect on the experiential learning value of the experience afterwards.

To request tickets for your class, please complete this form online. All requests are tentative until confirmed by the Hopkins Center, pending ticket availability and some restrictions. Requests will be processed in the order they are received.

With Dartmouth’s renewed focus on the value of experiential learning, the Hop is excited to continue exploring the many ways that the arts serve as a tool for active learning—making abstract concepts visible and physical, engaging with real-world problems and giving students an opportunity to reflect on their learning. If you haven’t already discovered how the Hop can support teaching and learning on campus, we encourage you to take advantage of our world class performances and films as an educational tool for your students. Consider this Curricular Connections Guide your invitation!


  • Many of the artists listed are available for workshops, discussions, meals and class visits. The Hop can provide supplemental resources, including articles, program notes, videos and more. Contact us for information about arranging a meeting with your students.
  • Subject to availability and some restrictions, each faculty member bringing a class to a performance will receive one FREE TICKET to the show for him/herself.
  • Free, public programs accompany many Hop performances. Most do not require a reservation, but let us know if you are bringing a group of students and we will be happy to make accommodations.

Email hop.outreach@dartmouth.edu or call 603.646.3812 if you see a curricular connection we can pursue together. Your students will thank you for it!
