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

When I decided that I wanted to pursue a BFA in Dance, I knew that I wanted it to be at USC Kaufman. It’s been a dream of mine to dance here with such amazing and talented artists at this program since freshman year, and I’m so grateful for this opportunity. I cant wait to see my artistic growth as a dancer and more importantly as a person.
