Introduction

The Department of Dance and Theatre Arts is dedicated to the professions of theatre arts and dance as central concerns of a civilized society and as primary methodologies in the education of its citizenry. Small groups of teachers and students, using as a foundation artists and artworks from both past and present and from all cultures and civilizations, collaborate in rehearsals and public performances derived from the finest possible classroom experiences.

Scholarly and empirical research is combined with a high level of spontaneous creativity to develop the entire spectrum of dance, theatre and film arts. Emphasis is placed on the interaction between performing artists and appreciative spectators. Playwrights, actors, dancers, choreographers, directors, designers and technicians are taught to discover and to enhance their own creativity, to bear witness through their artistry to the richness of human life, and to make artistic performance the means of educating those present when the performance occurs.

These student artists also must learn to design and manage each of the technical and administrative crafts that constitute the business of theatre arts and dance in the 21st century. Hence, a student who completes the bachelor's degree in the Department of Dance and Theatre Arts will be able to employ a large body of knowledge and a wide range of skills pertinent to creative executive management in business, industry, government or one of the fields traditionally associated with the fine arts: theatre, dance, music, education, radio, television, film, public relations, advertising and journalism. A person who can create and manage a successful theatre or dance organization can apply the same basic skills in any field. There is no technology computers, lasers or film and video industry technology that does not manifest itself in the crafts of theatre and dance.

The Department of Dance and Theatre Arts operates several facilities designed and equipped to generate, organize and conduct research in dance and dramatic performance, design and technical production.

The University Theatre with a 475 seat proscenium-stage and a flexible studio theatre both located in the Radio, TV, Film and Performing Arts Building, the Stovall Hall performance space, five dance studios, acting/directing studios, rehearsal rooms, a scene shop, a state-of-the-art costume design and construction space, the scenery and costume collection, and the department library represent a commitment to providing the finest possible theatre and dance education.

Assistantships, scholarships and program support are available. Application to the department for financial aid can be initiated at any time, but auditions and interviews for dance and theatre arts scholarships occur on the fourth Saturday in January prior to a September commitment.

Academic Advising

Students who wish to major or minor in dance should consult an adviser in the Dance Office, Stovall Hall, Room 180, about selection of courses, a degree plan, application of transfer credit in dance, and general academic requirements, policies and procedures. The approval of the department chair is required for degree plans. Theatre arts majors and minors will be advised by the academic advisers by contacting the department office, Room 242 of the Radio, TV, Film and Performing Arts Building.

All members of the dance and theatre arts faculty are available to help students achieve a successful enrollment at the University of North Texas and to provide guidance through their academic and professional careers.
