Step 1

Pre-Register for an In-Person Class

View our online schedule and pre-register for an in-person class. Pre-registration is mandatory and will available up to five (5) days prior to your selected class.

Once you've pre-registered, you will receive our Health Screening Form. This form must be completed on the day of your scheduled class and will be required for entry into the Joffrey Ballet School.

Step 2

Prepare for your Arrival

Arrive at Joffrey Ballet School no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of your class. If you arrive earlier, you will be asked to wait outside. Hallways and lobbies will not be open as a gathering or warm-up space.

At the 3rd Floor entrance, a Joffrey staff member will meet you and check you in for class. You will need to show confirmation of your completed Health Screening Form, and have your temperature checked. If you are vaccinated, please provide proof when you arrive. 

Vaccinated dancers are permitted to take class without a mask.

Come dressed and prepared to dance. Our dressing rooms will be open for restroom use only. Showers and changing areas are closed. All restrooms are limited to one-person at a time, available to all genders. Dance must use the restroom on the same floor as their class.

Without proof of vaccination, we ask that dancers wear a mask at the school at all times, from entrance to exit. This includes the full duration of all classes. Masks must fully cover the mouth and nose.

Step 3

Enjoy your class!

Follow the designated arrows towards your studio. A dot on the floor, as well as the upper right corner of a 7x8 box, provides a reference point to maintain social distance throughout class. 

Dancers must leave Joffrey Ballet School within five minutes of the end of class.

We appreciate your attention to these policies to keep our community safe and dancing in-person!
