USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance
Founded in 2012 by a transformational gift from visionary founder Glorya Kaufman, the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance is at the forefront of developing dancers, choreographers, and dance leaders for the future. USC Kaufman’s model of dance education, called “The New Movement,” is a hybrid and collaborative approach expressed in studio practice, music, choreography, performance, new media and scholarship, where artistic preeminence is combined with thoughtful industry access. By encouraging interdisciplinary and collaborative work, USC Kaufman seeks to transform dance. It embraces the artistic rigor of conservatory dance instruction with the unparalleled academic opportunity offered by one of the world’s leading universities to shape the next generation of dance leaders who are connected to the world-at-large.
