Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center

University of Southern California

Los Angeles, CA

In the Fall of 2016, the USC Kaufman School enrolled its first cohort of BFA dance majors and classes commenced in this, 55,000sf state-of-the-art dance complex.  The Bachelor of Fine Arts curriculum prepares the artist, the innovator and the entrepreneur.  The hallmark of the USC Kaufman School - as expressed in its motto "The New Movement" - is the development of a new movement model that will be expressed in new media, scholarship, studio practice and choreography for the 21st century.

Located across from the new USC Village, the Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center is the gateway of the busiest pedestrian crossing on campus.  The 70ft tall building comprises a Large Dance Performance studio, 4 Medium Dance Studios, a Small Dance Studio, 2 Classrooms, and all the requisite support spaces.  MCH was retained to provide full-scope acoustical consulting.
