Frank Ballard started teaching puppetry at the University of Connecticut in 1964. Demand for the subject grew so dramatically that they made a college major titled Puppet Arts within the School of Fine Arts. Since the major was created, over 500 puppet productions have been presented at UConn, and graduates of the program have gone on to perform and design at many theatres around the globe.
