Last week, all three classes of USC Kaufman BFAs had the opportunity to work with movement artist Jon Boogz. This was a particularly amazing experience for me because Jon Boogz’s movement vocabulary is based in popping, a West Coast Funk style that I have trained in for the last ten years.
A large group of our BFAs jumped at the chance to perform in partnership with the USC Song Girls and the Spirit of Troy Marching Band at this year’s homecoming game halftime show.

Recently, the Kaufman building has been filled with excitement, preparing for shows such as the Student Showcase and Midterm Works and Progress. But these are not the only projects that Kaufman students have been working on. For the past three weeks, Barak Marshall (former resident choreographer for Batsheva) has been setting Monger on the sophomore and junior BFA students.
USC Kaufman students are challenged to explore the intersections of their various intellectual pursuits here at USC beyond the dance studios. Rachel Harris, a sophomore, and Lenai Wilkerson, a junior—share how artistry and academia collide in their own academic pursuits.
