The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance provides students with opportunities to collaborate and innovate both on and off campus with leading artists, scholars and institutions.
Focused on interdisciplinary innovation, our BFA program emphasizes the importance of collaborative work professionally as well as artistically. As such, the school’s established partnerships offer unparalleled experiences for our students to make these connections while strengthening the already-vibrant dance landscape.
Dance students are able to learn from faculty and fellow students at the university’s other top art programs through partnerships with the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the USC Thornton School of Music. They can benefit from residencies with artistic faculty and mentors from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, a leading force in interdisciplinary dance artistry. They can engage with dance in new media through a partnership with Dance Camera West, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting dance on film. Finally, students can connect with world-renowned performers thanks to the school’s exclusive relationship with Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center.
