Since middle school, Tristian Griffin wanted to attend TCU and the School for Classical & Contemporary Dance gave him the education and experience to become a professional dancer. Griffin recognizes the role of mentorship was critical to his preparation, and his comprehensive education prepared him to work for the legendary Garth Fagan.
Even though Fagan’s technique is the complete opposite of Griffin’s focus, Griffin says, “TCU equipped me for any dance career path by giving me the tools to become a well-rounded dancer.” Griffin has been with Garth Fagan Dance for two years, and says “I am living my dream.”
