Summer Arts Academy

The DAP Festival is a unique international festival that combines dance and music with visual arts, and TROY students participated in the inaugural event last year.

“This festival is becoming part of our culture,” said Tori Lee Averett, chair of the TROY Department of Theatre and Dance. “We’re excited to have three different groups of students — music, theatre and dance. It’s growing, and we’ve done a great job of being collaborative in the development of it. We’re all working together to make it happen.”
