Pulling off an online intensive can be a daunting task. Because of this, I was not sure what to expect from a two week long, seven hours a day Zoom intensive with the dance company BODYTRAFFIC. I am happy to report that the experience was not only inspiring, but humbling as well.
New faculty and Artists in Residence for Fall 2021
This fall, the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance welcomes two new faculty members. Penny Saunders will join the School of Dance as an Artist in Residence. Rosanna Tavarez will become an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Dance for the 2021-2022 academic year.
New courses support students’ return to in-person learning
Due to remote learning, BFA students have been unable to dance as rigorously as they normally would. To prepare dancers for in-person activities, the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance created DANC 149 Kaufman Summer Bridge and DANC 549 Pre-Professional Dance Techniques. These courses offer in-person dance classes to BFA students enrolled in the 2020-2021 academic year, including those who graduated in the Class of 2021.
