The School of Theatre & Dance lost one of its alums this Winter: Terry Michael Chance. While it’s always challenging to say goodbye to someone who meant so much to this community, it’s also an opportunity to share with you just how significant story telling is to our craft (and I must admit, Terry’s amazing life offers an array of stories that I heard about ten years ago when I took over directing the program in Lubbock).
Students in the dance program are wrapping up our last day of classes and moving into finals. This semester has whizzed by so quickly that it feels like a blur. As we shifted back to face-to-face classes and live performances, we shared both the excitement and the exhaustion of being back in the studio and theatre again.
As 2022 approaches, we plan continually to explore the concept of sustainability, in all its myriad incarnations, to make certain that we have balanced our time well enough to assure you, our audiences, that we are mining the best of our talents, all the while serving the Lubbock community we love.
