Student Blog: Opportunities knock

By Alyssa Allen

USC Kaufman’s environment produces many opportunities where dancers and artists can collaborate. We are able to start building connections with other artists on campus that will remain strong after graduation and throughout our professional endeavors. Many of these collaborations have blossomed into friendships that will surely last a lifetime. I believe that now is the best time to collaborate–we are all hungry to create, and are willing to do it for free (a rare opportunity in the working field).
