What an awesome year it has been at the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance!

After returning to campus last fall with our first in-person performance in over a year, we switched into high gear this spring. Throughout the semester, our students worked with an astounding array of high-profile artists including Tony Award winner Justin Peck, Doug Varone and others. In addition, we had our debut at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts with four exciting performances featuring ground-breaking choreography by Ohad Naharin, Tessandra Chavez and more.

In addition to super-boosting our performances, we resumed international travel with our Berlin Maymester, a unique opportunity for our students to be immersed in the rich cultural landscape of one of Europe’s artistic centers. And in just a few weeks, a group of dancers from the Class of 2022 and 2023 will perform at Fürth’s Stadttheater for USC Kaufman’s debut in Germany!

All of these amazing opportunities are the result of the collective efforts of USC Kaufman’s outstanding faculty, staff and supporters. Performing at professional venues, foreign travel and the “extras” that make the USC Kaufman experience extraordinary are just some of the ways our community of supporters help make our students’ dreams come true.

As we near the end of the fiscal year, we ask, if you are able, to consider making a gift to the USC Kaufman annual fund to helpful fulfill the dreams and visions of our ever talented, dedicated and hard-working artist scholars.
