Edward Oyarce-Solomon

Mountain View, CA

BFA Class of 2021

Where did you train?

I received the majority of my training at the Conservatory for Contemporary Dance Arts in San Jose, CA with Mark Foehringer.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by so many things, but people, words, and connections are what push me forward. I believe that we are all seeking connection with something or someone and often words can help create or destroy these efforts. Dance fills in when words fail.

Describe yourself in three words.

Hardworking. Inquisitive. Caring.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I love Michael Jackson. I have a shrine to him in my room.

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

To me, being part of USC Kaufman means that I will have the privilege of working every day with people who are committed and passionate about dance and creation. It means learning a whole new set of skills to connect with more people.
