Bielefeld University has a very lively theatre scene. The university's theatre ensembles rehearse regularly during term-time and perform at the end of term. There are the Compagnie Charivari  (in German) and the English speaking English Drama Group of the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Studies as well as the Theaterwerkstatt [Theatre workshop] of the Faculty of Educational Science. You are into dramatics and would like to join a theatrical group? The theatre classes (in German) provide a good starting point and are open to students of other faculties.

Every two years the Centre for Aesthetics organises the Uni-Theater-Festival [University Theatre Festival] (in German). Presented are the creative power and great versatility of the university ensembles, the free theatre groups of the university environment and the professional Theatre of Bielefeld.

Furthermore, the dancers of the Department of Sports Science of the Faculty of Psychology and Sports Science regularly give public performances. However, dance classes of the faculty are open to students of Sports Science only. Students of other faculties and university staff who are interested in dancing can turn to the University Sports Service Bielefeld (in German). They offer a variety of dance classes that are open to everyone.
