About the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance

Founded in 2012 by a transformational gift by Glorya Kaufman, the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance combines artistic preeminence with industry access at one of the nation’s leading private universities. The hallmark of USC Kaufman – as expressed in its motto “The New Movement” — is the development of new movement models for dance, where intersecting dance techniques create hybrid forms to be expressed in new media, scholarship, studio practice, and choreography. Since welcoming its inaugural class in fall of 2015, USC Kaufman has hosted some of the leading artistic voices in dance. With world-renowned faculty members and exclusive partnerships with cutting-edge dance companies, USC Kaufman is a pioneering hub for dance education in Southern California. In fall of 2016, the school’s vision was realized in brick and mortar with the opening of the more than 54,000-square-foot Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center.   Learn more at
