Theatre Faculty "I like that entering MSU freshman can get right to work on Theatre and Dance projects. There is a great ensemble atmosphere from the minute students walk in the door. Often, almost the entire program is involved in a single project: a dance concert, a musical, or student-directed plays."

As a member of the honorary dance fraternity Delta Chi Xi, advisor and dance professor Natasha Davis has continued to inspire me to become the best dancer that I can be and has provided me with numerous performance and experience opportunities."
