Black Lives Matter at the School of Theatre & Dance

The School of Theatre & Dance at West Virginia University has grappled with the issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement as individuals, and as a virtual community during this time of isolation. This national movement has greatly impacted our discussions, the momentum of our contributions to the industry, and the framework of our offerings at WVU. Before the pandemic took full effect in March, the School had been in active engagement regarding the formation of a Diversity & Inclusion Committee. We are glad to share that we have now formally enacted this committee to begin service in the upcoming semester.

Fall 2020 Return to Campus 

The West Virginia University College of Creative Arts is working to transform the arts experience for Fall 2020. We are working with national arts organizations, following new studies about COVID-19 in educational settings, and collaborating with industry experts about how to best move forward for courses that typically require close hands-on instruction.

Producing theatre and dance events is the center of what we do as artists. So much so, that every degree program in the School requires numerous credits for the active participation in the creation of dance and theatre performances.
