Faculty Spotlight: Matt Greenberg 

"In my classes I believe that multiple perspectives are valued in creating the world of play. No two people are a like, hence, there isn't one right answer to something. I train artists and not simply performers. A performer is limited to performing, however, an artist CAN perform, but they can also think creatively, devise their own work, work in multi-disciplinary ways, and have a deep value of the process as well as the product."
