We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

Ophelia knows that no one can foretell the future, but we know that in our department, our theatre and dance students can actualize their greatest potential.

We believe in creating opportunities for our students to become strong impactful leaders, engaging and innovative artists and compassionate members of a global community. Our aim is for students to develop deeper understandings of different cultures and diverse perspectives through the eyes of artists. We train our students to express these understandings through the powerful mediums of theatre and dance. Our graduates are future artists and leaders uniting, inspiring and embracing the goal of collaborative performance. Our students embody this goal as they strive to discover and reveal the meaning in the world around us.
