You will also have opportunities to take classes, perform present research at American College Dance Association (ACDA), the National Dance Educators Organization (NDEO) conference and Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).
You will have many opportunities to broaden your experience. All students are welcome to join the UW-Stevens Point Players Student Artistic Alliance. Now in its 50th year, the organization coordinates events such as trips to see shows, workshops to broaden students’ knowledge of theater and dance, and forums, which are casual performance nights throughout the year. Players also helps organize the beginning-of-the-year Theatre and Dance orientation picnic and sells refreshments at show intermissions. Donations support future productions as well as the end-of-the-year banquet, a celebration and Department of Theatre and Dance award ceremony. The evening includes dinner, scholarships presentations, plenty of humor and a rollicking dance.
