Dell Arte is a school for creativity and the artist within us all. The Dell Arte International was founded in 1971 by Jane Hill and Carlo Mazzone- Clementi and became the accredited college that it is today back in 1974. The creation of actors onto the stage with bright lights is what Dell Arte has been doing for many years and to their credit that have produced great performing artists. The school works with actors in training, a Summer festival, community involvement, and youth programs in local schools.


The Dell Arte International School of Physical Theatre says a mouthful and they deliver amazing performances on stage and through their teaching. The school is the only one in the US that offers full time physical theatre training. Their faculty is committed to the theatre arts as most have made this field their career and are now passing their knowledge onto a new class of performers. Dell Arte provides its students with very few 2-bedroom apartments and a 9-bedroom hotel with returning students having first pick.


The courses at Dell Arte are quite extensive and diverse.
