Simply, everything is going on at the school of the arts.

Whether we are producing a material or utilizing our dance classes to collaborate with theraputic exercise in health sciences, we are on the cutting edge of transdisciplinary studies. Yes, we're hosting concerts, but we're also preparing students to produce better rock n' roll shows. We can teach you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, which could lead to dozens of careers. Here, you will dance, you will sing, and most of all, you will achieve.
