Welcome to SSU Theatre Arts & Dance, Where the Artist is Essential

The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance offers students a home where they can seek their potential and develop their voices as artists, through the study and collaborative creation of live performance. We believe in a world where the artist is transformative, essential and engaged.

Our programs develop graduates who bring optimistic leadership and vision to the performing arts. They stand on these core principles:

Student centered - We believe first and foremost in creating experiences that serve our students’ needs and passions.

Rigorous - We believe that performance training can inspire us to the highest standards of professionalism and personal achievement.

Engaging - We believe in making work that has value beyond the dance and theatre world and directly engages our campus and local community.
