Our Faculty

Think about the variety of accomplished performing artists you might find in a city like Los Angeles or New York. In the same way, the DeSales community of accomplished actors, directors, vocalists, dancers, film makers, writers, and others—our faculty—will help you in your academic journey into the performing arts.

Our division is welcoming and ready to help or inspire you as a DeSales performing arts student. Our faculty members have an open-door policy and are ready to guide and mentor you along your way to graduation.
