We invite you to give now to help build a legacy of support that will impact students, educators, choreographers and audience members for generations to come.
For a limited time, two extraordinary opportunities exist to be part of “The New Movement” at USC: the Founder’s Circle (scholarship gifts) and Naming Opportunities (within the new building). For ongoing support, you can also join the Dean’s Circle.
“We are creating a new and visionary school that will be at the forefront of developing dancers, choreographers and dance leaders. The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance promises to transform the landscape of dance, making an impact on a national scale through its development of a New Movement model and its collaboration with leading artists from Los Angeles and around the globe. We invite you to partner in an enduring legacy that will support generations of talented students in their intellectual and artistic development.”
–Robert Cutietta, Dean
