BFA Class of 2019
Concentration in Dance Performance
While at USC Kaufman, Schiffner developed leadership skills through her position as Event Manager. This year, she organized Laguna Dance Festival’s Spring Gala as the Education and Artist Coordinator. Schiffner attended the Jacob’s Pillow Contemporary Ballet Program, then joined the professional ballet company BalletMet in Columbus, Ohio with a year-long AGMA contract. She hopes to continue developing her artistry and technique during her professional ballet career. By learning from her mentors, she hopes to become the best ballet mistress/coach/teacher she can be.
“Additionally, I hope to be a leader in my field, and to impact people’s lives both as a performer and an educator,” she said. ” I want to advocate for the woman’s position in artistic leadership and voice and to make dance a more accessible art for all.”
