The central focus of the UM-Flint Department of Theatre & Dance is to provide our students with a challenging educational environment and richly diverse learning experiences. We also strive to provide students opportunities to work alongside professionals both on stage and off.
The Flint Youth Theatre & The University of Michigan-Flint Alliance
For all aspiring theatre and dance students, the opportunity to collaborate with professional artists and master teachers is critical to their education, their experience and their resumes. UM-Flint is within walking distance of the Flint Cultural Center's nationally acclaimed Flint Youth Theatre, providing unique opportunities not available to students in other parts of the state. Many UM-Flint students have worked collaboratively with the professional artistic team at Flint Youth Theatre and UM-Flint Faculty. We deeply value this alliance and are eager to further its development in the years to come.
