New USC Kaufman School of Dance minor

The USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance is thrilled to announce a new 16 unit minor titled Dance in Popular Culture: Hip Hop, Urban, and Social Dances.

Dance in Popular Culture delves into the historical, social and aesthetic issues of dance in the contemporary settings of entertainment, concert, vernacular and recreational forms. It is designed to explore the foundations and structures of hip hop, urban and social dances and to introduce and orient non-major students to the language of dance in contemporary society. In the hip hop culture, dance has become a major avenue of expression, acceptance and power. This minor will address issues of art, race and politics within the parameters of dance as an art form, entertainment and personal expression.

More information about the courses required for the minor is available on our website. For a minor application, please contact Anne Aubert-Santelli, USC Kaufman’s Admissions and Academic Advisor, at
