Learning is doing. You’ll receive training in your chosen concentration and start performing right away, on and off campus — regardless of experience and skill level. All our ensembles and productions are open to USF students of any major or minor.
To me, each performing art form is capable of healing a different part of the mind, body, and soul trinity. Theater heals the mind. Dance heals the body. Music heals the spirit. Keep that in mind when you create. Surrender to the chaos and order of creation."
