By Jeffrey de Caen, Associate Dean of Operations

USC Kaufman Center and the USC Thornton School of Music

Registration for this event is closed


The USC Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center is recognized as a ‘Palace for Dance’. Jeffrey DeCaen, has overseen several major construction and renovation projects for music buildings on the USC Campus


            The prospect of building a state-of-the-art Kaufman Dance Center at USC required him to do more than a bit of homework. Preparation involved researching national and international Dance Centers and Performance Venues in preparation for the 2014 groundbreaking of the Kaufman Center.


           After a short business meeting, our June program will feature Jeffrey DeCaen in a discussion of his preparations for the development of the Center. He will present a video of this innovative and extraordinary building project and there will be time for audience questions and discussion before he leads a group tour of the Kaufman Center, pictured above.
