 “Shaping Dreams into Reality”

The UALR Department of Theater Arts and Dance supports and guides students to achieve their individual potential as performers, designers, technicians, and artists. We create a safe but rigorous environment to take risks, broaden your imagination, and discover your unique place and purpose in the world. The curriculum allows students to explore the wide range of career options available in theater, dance, and design while simultaneously emphasizing quality and depth of investigation. We intentionally maintain a low student/faculty ratio to provide high quality training with individual attention for each student.
