WordPress WordPress Theme Development Starting a WordPress Theme Where WordPress Themes Live

Where do Wordpress themes live ?

In this video it seems as though the themes are installed inside of a MAMP folder, but in the previous video they Zac demonstrates creating a sites in a separate folder independent of the MAMP folder. If I'm confused on where should my themes live now. If I make a theme in the MAMP folder will the other sites be able to see and apply the themes from the Wordpress Admin page ?
