Department of Theatre Arts
Spring 2017 brought the graduation of the first Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Dance class from the department and from any HBCU in the Nation. These trailblazers are headed to further study and beginning their careers as professional dancers. BFA majors received instruction through four levels of each of the following genres: ballet, modern, jazz, African, and hip hop. To view dance program click here.
ASU Theatre & Dance also prepares students for sustainable and lucrative careers as “behind the scenes” technicians, directors, stage managers, lighting & sound designers, costumers, make-up artists, choreographers, critics, and playwrights.
Realistic, hands-on experience is provided as students perform in and work on mainstage theatre & dance productions, the annual One Act Play Festival, Senior Dance Capstone Projects, and various special events presented throughout the year.
