Personal Statement
Bryan Ringsted is passionate about student leadership in the arts, and through his classes and productions he keeps that passion central.  The theater is a living organism with a thousand moving parts, all of which must work copesecticly in order for the show to dazzle and amaze. Each strong student leader is therefore able to take on their own part of that whole, and through their effort and creativity they are able to create something bigger than themselves.  Notre Dame is a perfect place to train the theatrial leaders of tomorrow.
