An invitation to be in first position

We invite you to catalyze and transform dance while creating a legacy that will impact students, educators, choreographers and audience members for generations to come.

For a limited time, two extraordinary opportunities exist to be part of “The New Movement” at USC, in Los Angeles and for dance on a national stage: the Founder’s Circle (scholarship gifts) and Naming Opportunities (within the new building). For ongoing support, you can also join the Dean’s Circle.

Give Now

We are creating a new and visionary school that will be at the forefront of developing dancers, choreographers and dance leaders. The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance promises to transform the landscape of dance, making an impact on a national scale through its development of a New Movement model and its collaboration with leading artists from Los Angeles and around the globe. We invite you to partner in an enduring legacy that will support generations of talented students in their intellectual and artistic development.

–Robert Cutietta, Dean

When visionary Los Angeles philanthropist Glorya Kaufman made a transformative gift to USC to create the Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, she created a legacy and an opportunity for other patrons of dance and the arts to establish an enduring legacy of their own.

The first new school to be established at USC in more than 40 years, the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance will become the epicenter of excellence in the interdisciplinary study of dance creation and performance in the 21st century.
