Professor Travis Prokop twirls into the Jannettes’ world, turning a dancer’s dream into reality with a modern masterclass.

On Tuesday, the Jannettes welcomed and had the privilege of taking a modern masterclass from the University of Houston’s professor Travis Prokop!

• Travis is currently an assistant professor of dance at UH and continues to serve the Houston dance community.
• He has also served as a faculty of dance at Lamar University (tenured), Sam Houston State University and Southern Methodist University.
• He has produced local and national works for numerous arts and dance events.
• As a performer, Travis Prokop has been featured on national television for the FOX broadcasting shows So You Think You Can Dance (Season 5) and American Crime (Season 2, Episode 5).
• Professor Prokop has performed nationally and has also performed for various dance companies here in Houston.

During his visit, he did a Q&A with the Jannettes and talked to them about the University of Houston’s dance program, and what all it has to offer, along with scholarship opportunities. We are so grateful for this experience and hope to continue to provide more opportunities like these for our students.
Yay DANCE and all the wonderful things happening at SHHS! ❤️
