ABOUT THE CREATIVE WRITING CONSERVATORY
The Creative Writing Conservatory is an MFA-modeled course of study that offers students a flexible concentration of classes and writing opportunities. Student-focused and evolving, the workshops and topics present contemporary and classic works side by side to serve as examples of excellent writing. Publishing and performance opportunities are paired with craft study to develop a balanced and accomplished writing student.
Ballet Folklórico students expand their understanding of choreography by learning repertoire from the various states and regions of Mexico and Spain, thereby developing technical strength and artistry, along with historical and cultural values. Students are exposed to renowned guest artists, university faculty, and industry leaders. Through performances, students are provided the opportunity to develop their creative abilities and express themselves as dancers and artists. Each year culminates in a main stage production highlighting the material learned throughout the year. Ballet Folklórico students also present a piece of their own choreography during Clase Abierta at the end of each year. There are additional performance opportunities available through the conservatory’s widely recognized audition-only group, Las Estrellas, which performs at charitable events throughout the community.
