What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

Being selected to be a part of the USC Kaufman Class of 2025 has been both anxiety-provoking and exciting, striking myself with an overwhelming sense of surrealism to be amongst the most talented dancers and people. For me, USC Kaufman is a family that embraces diversity and uniqueness in order to foster a workspace for creativity, care and the discovery of one’s artistic voice and intent to change the world for the better through dance. Needless to say, I am honored to be here and thrilled for this next chapter.
