We mentor students to be creators of theatre. This includes training in:
- Voice, Speech and Dialects
- Skinner Releasing
- Aerial dance
- Corporeal Mime
- Devised work
- Acting for the camera
- ...and much more
We are interested in giving students more possibilities for creating theatre work as a chosen life - and the ability to fashion a life as an artist with some measure of self-direction.
Company members of The Juniata Visiting Artists Collective, a consortium of professional artists from the theatre, dance and film worlds, along with Professor Clarke, are the core faculty of the Performance POE.

Professional mentoring offers these students some irreplaceable advantages:
A ready-made network of professionals who can position students in the performance world
Ongoing training at the highest level possible from experienced professionals
Training in specialized areas
