USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance

The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance is the newest school to debut at the University of Southern California. Beginning in the fall of 2015, the Kaufman School will offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree who wish to pursue dance as their major. This four-year degree will be housed in the Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center. Applications for the BFA will be accepted beginning fall of 2014.

The BFA curriculum is designed to prepare the artist, innovator and the entrepreneur. The hallmark of USC Kaufman is the development of a new movement model for dance, intersecting dance techniques and creating a hybrid form that will be expressed in new media, scholarship, studio practice and choreography for the 21st century. USC Kaufman provides foundational insight, intellectual and artistic development, a robust performance repertory, exposure to world-renowned practicing artists, interdisciplinary projects, conditioning for dancers and strategic career venture skills. With opportunities for interdisciplinary study interwoven into the curriculum, students are able to explore collaborations and innovations with established partners.
