The Loretto-Hilton Center on the campus of Webster University in St. Louis, MO is home to the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, The Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and the Jean and Wells Hobler Center for Dance where the Department of Dance resides.

As a center for performing arts in the St. Louis area, the Department of Dance benefits from the flurry of professional activity surrounding the Loretto-Hilton Center as students witness and work with performing arts professionals from around the country. Webster dancers also enjoy close partnerships with professional dance companies and arts organizations in St. Louis.
