The UPA department of Theater and Dance trains students in the creative and analytical elements of performance art with the belief that dance and acting build individual’s teamwork, creativity, resourcefulness, empathy, and confidence. Involvement in dance and theater supports building positive connections and creates well-rounded, life-long learners.


The Theater and Dance Department is always looking for help on the Winter and Spring show. Adult volunteers are always needed and appreciated. They help lead teams in building sets, props, costumes, leading the stage crew, and help with hair/make-up. If you have expertise that you want to share or are willing to learn, please contact Cayleigh Coester.


Financial contributions to the drama department are critical in contributing to the success of the drama productions. Donations help fund the Winter and Spring productions and help make dreams a reality for our performers. Click here to support!


The department is currently working toward purchasing a set of wireless microphones and headsets.
