Together Again

As we say goodbye to 2022 and welcome a new year, we are grateful to the community at Texas Tech for recognizing the need for our new theatre and dance complex, and, yes, to Texas itself, a state that truly recognizes the importance of arts education. But most of all, we are thankful for you, our audiences, who continue to support us as we celebrate and share the skills learned by our most excellent students.

In Motion

As we near the end of the semester, I am thankful for a stimulating and fulfilling fall term and for all the new faces in our program, both students and faculty.

Welcome Dean Martin Camacho

At only six years old, Dean Martin Camacho learned to play the organ in his family’s home in Mexico. His grandfather had bought the organ years earlier with the hope that one day one of his sons would learn to play, but it was his grandson who took an interest in the instrument.

Christian Ruiz Hustles and Scores Big!

In the short time since Christian Ruiz (MFA, 2021) graduated from the Texas Tech University School of Theatre & Dance, he has accomplished more than he could ever have anticipated. Though plenty of our graduates have gone on to develop fruitful artistic careers, it is rare that they do so in such an explosive manner.
