Crystal Bertrand

Instructor of Dance

“I never tire of strong, structured training that supports the dancer in their quest for excellence and those who are vigilant about that progress and dream. I have dedicated and committed my career as an educator to inspire, entertain and achieve greater heights of artistic excellence. As an instructor of dance, my greatest desire and hope is that students will discover the feeling that was once shared with me; the true value of dance and with it what one can become. It is an amazing experience.”

"My favorite part about designing costumes is getting to work with a variety of students, from working with the actors wearing the costumes, to technicians working in the costume shop, to students who have never sewn before. I get to work with and get to know everyone in the department."

Tana Roberson

Assistant Professor of Theatre

“The theatre is a school. We shall never be done with studying and learning. In the theatre, as in life, we try first of all to free ourselves, as far as we can, from our own limitations. Then we can practice ‘this noble and magical art.’ Then we may dream.” –Robert Edmond Jones

 Edward Truitt

Edward Truitt

Associate Professor of Dance

“George Balanchine once said, ‘I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance.’I had to dance, and became a professional dancer performing solo and principal roles in ballet and dancing in modern and jazz works. So if you have to dance like I did, then I invite you to consider the dance program at WTAMU. I am a passionate and successful teacher of the art of dance. My students have gone on to dance professionally in ballet companies, modern companies, in the entertainment field, and have danced professionally on every continent except Antarctica.”

Leslie Williams

Leslie Williams

Associate Professor of Dance

"I truly believe that dance is the only art form that encompasses every quality of a human being: the mind, body and soul. Each day in the studio is a gift from my students as I watch them grow and develop into young artists. Their self-discovery enriches my teaching process and allows me to continue to learn with them. I feel that all art forms are vital to the existence of our planet and that through dance we are allowed to address every human emotion."
