About USC Dance
The USC Dance Program has recently achieved national recognition in the April 2014 edition of Dance Magazine, which listed USC as one of the top three non-conservatory programs to consider which offer specialization in classical ballet.
Our undergraduate program combines a rigorous dance classroom and studio environment with the depth and breadth of an excellent liberal arts education. The dance program, founded by Professor Susan E. Anderson, has established a long legacy of excellence. The program attracts highly motivated students from across the country and abroad, who are committed to rigorous development of their natural abilities through study combined with practice, leading to a life enriched by the art of dance.
Working from a solid foundational core of dance courses, students have the option of developing additional competencies with an emphasis in either Performance and Choreography or Dance Education K-12 Certification. Our experienced studio faculty strives to instill a sound foundation of guided practice in the disciplines and principles of classical ballet, contemporary dance and jazz.
Our alumni are successful and have gone on to a wide range of achievements. Many of our graduates are currently dancing professionally, completing graduate work and/or working as dance teachers and administrators in colleges, universities and other educational and professional organizations.
Congrats to our 2013
Dance Education Graduates,
