Welcome to the SCPA

When the School of the Creative and Performing was formed in 2013 it brought together the three artistic disciplines that share a central fascination with the nature of performance.

Each of Music, Dance, and Drama boast long, distinct and distinctive histories at the University of Calgary; together they represent a bold and ambitious initiative, generating opportunities that only their close collaboration makes possible. Our students receive focused and concentrated disciplinary preparation in addition to unique opportunities for multi-, cross-, and interdisciplinary instruction and experience through highly flexible yet carefully designed program options.

We prioritize the immeasurable benefits of professional experience and international exchange, and by placing a premium on research, scholarship, and the intersection of practice and theory, we combine a deep respect for the pragmatic aspects of careers in the arts with a rigorous fascination for the philosophical, theoretical, cultural, sociological, and ideological dimensions of our fields. 

At the School of Creative and Performing Arts the future of the performing arts—locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally—is being examined, reimagined, and forged anew for the twenty-first century.
