the school

Thank you for your interest in the WVU School of Theatre & Dance.

With 180 students working in 4 theatres, 6 shops, 4 labs, producing 8-10 shows per year, our School is an exciting and vibrant place to study and practice the art and craft of theatre and dance. We are a big enough program to offer a challenging and comprehensive curriculum, yet small enough to work with our students in a one-to-one mentoring basis.

The School of Theatre & Dance is part of WVU’s College of Creative Arts and shares the Loulie, Valerie and William Canady Creative Arts Center with the School of Music and the School of Art & Design. Our College offers students the advantages of personal instruction of a smaller school with the resources of a major research university.

The students and faculty in our program all share a common passion and enthusiasm for the art of live theatre and dance. I invite you to join our community of excited and engaged artists and craftspeople.
