A building takes shape

March 15, 2015

Located on the corner of Watt Way and Jefferson Boulevard, the building will flank the new pedestrian artery that will connect the future USC Village with the campus. As you enter campus, you will immediately be impacted by the 5-story high, collegiate gothic-styled, cathedral-window and brick laced mass of the new Dance Center, which will be surrounded by new landscaping, benches, bike racks and welcoming street improvements. Welcome to the first of many updates related to construction of the new Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center. My name is Jeffrey de Caen, Associate Dean for Operations, Technology, and Construction, and I will have the honor of shepherding the project to its completion in 2016. This prominent structure will be the embodiment of USC and Glorya Kaufman’s commitment to dance.

Today, the shape of the Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center is just beginning to emerge from the building’s construction site. A year from today, the center will be bustling with artists, scholars, choreographers, innovators and future dance leaders.
