The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance graduated its first-ever class of BFA students in May 2019 and our alumni have already made an impact on the dance community and beyond. Several members of our inaugural class have secured contracts with Broadway productions and dance companies including Alonzo King LINES Ballet, BalletMet, Ballet Hispánico, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Oregon Ballet Theatre and RUBBERBAND, among others. They have also gone on to pursue careers in arts administration, marketing and business. In addition to our first class of dance majors, several USC students have graduated with a minor in dance.
