USC Choreographic Institute

The mission of the USC Choreographic Institute is to establish how choreographic systems advance research in a variety of fields and to advocate for the social and cognitive value of choreography.

The USC Choreographic Institute is an international platform for innovative initiatives in choreographic research, practice, and mentorship. Working closely with partner schools at USC, including the Schools of Cinematic Arts, Gerontology, and Music, the Institute engages artists, scientists, gamers, and humanists in exploring the intersections of movement, creative technologies, and wellbeing. Advised by world-renowned choreographer and artist William Forsythe, the USC Choreographic Institute is the research platform of the Glorya Kaufman School of Dance at the University of Southern California.
