…driven by and inspired by the character and spirit of Wyoming and the land-grant
mission of the University of Wyoming. We strive to prepare students for meaningful
lives as theatre and dance professionals, scholars, educators, and arts supporters
and patrons by providing a rigorous, vibrant, creative, and supportive academic environment.
We believe that students learn best by doing and provide extensive one-on-one and
practical educational opportunities through comfortable class sizes and strong faculty
mentorship. Students can build a portfolio of experiences based on their degree and
individual interests. We support and encourage students with multiple interests inside
and outside the program. We support and encourage students to study abroad.
We enrich the cultural life of campus, Laramie, and Wyoming by staging a wide range
of high-quality performances, workshops, conferences, and events that showcase our
students’, faculty’s, and guest artists’ talents and creative work. We bring the world
of theatre and dance to Wyoming and Wyoming to the world.
We strive to engage with the broadest possible audience with planned seasons of ambitious
theatre and dance. We believe in the positive contributions and impacts that the arts
can play in society with the potential for personal and cultural transformation and
for social change. The arts are a substantial part of the economy, and we train our
students to be ready for the many possible paths their careers and lives may take
Students are the heart of our program, and we continue to elevate the spirit of the
program for elevated student training and success.
