University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance Mission:
We develop arts professionals grounded in creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and craftsmanship.
"When I began looking for theatre schools, UH's School of Theatre & Dance was the most passionate about its students learning the craft and furthering their careers in the business, on top of being the most welcoming overall. The curriculum offers many opportunities and challenges for the early career actor to learn and grow from. Throughout the years, I loved how the class bonded from not only being excellent individual actors, but becoming strong and pliable ensemble members. This program is one of the best in the state if you're looking for professional acting training."
"I would not be where I am today without the blessing that is The University of Houston School of Theatre and Dance. Not only did I grow as an artist, my professors helped me to grow as a person and showed me what it is to be professional in this industry. It was a roller coaster of a journey and I wouldn't change a minute of it."
"There is no one word or phrase to sum up my Acting training from UHSOTD. It's demanding, it's enriching, it's draining, it's freeing (when you really put the work in). Plus, to be in the company and under the tutelage of these well-seasoned, veteran artists - these true masters of multiple aspects of 'the craft' - was an opportunity that I was, personally speaking, blessed to have so close to home. There is love for the art, respect for the artist, diligence in the process, and access to opportunities in Houston and beyond. I'm proud of my time at UH and I take that with me onto every stage I perform on."
"I always tell people about what a wonderful theatrical program they have at the University of Houston, it truly was a family to me and I got such amazing teaching and mentors in my four years there. The faculty and staff is truly impressive and so is the talent that comes through there. It's a wonderful choice for a degree in performance and I thoroughly appreciate and am grateful for my experiences in that department."
