Laguna Dance Festival Brings USC Kaufman Faculty and Students to Orange County
September 13, 2017
Our own Vice Dean Jodie Gates is the founder and artistic director of the Laguna Dance Festival which just celebrated its seventh year. Aimed at bringing world-class dance to Orange County, this year’s festival included performances from Ballet BC and the Paul Taylor Dance Company, as well as free art-walk performances featuring several Kaufman students, master classes, and pre-show discussions. There was also a screening of the Paul Taylor documentary Dancemaker coupled with an on-stage rehearsal demonstration hosted by USC Kaufman professor Patrick Corbin.
