USC Dance Program Brings Hip Hop to Elementary School


LOS ANGELES — Tiffany Bong is an international hip hop dance artist and faculty member of the University of Southern California Glorya Kaufman School of Dance.

She is also program director for Kaufman Connections, a new initiative for community engagement, which this year has brought BFA dance students from USC to the 32nd Street Magnet School to teach students from grades 3 to 5 how to hip hop dance.

Today is the spring culmination showcase where the USC dance students, called “teaching artists,”and their kids get to show off what they’ve learned over the past two semesters.
