Several of our Joffrey Ballet School success stories share the same plot. These featured dancers began their journeys as our summer intensive students, who were then selected to join us for our year-round Trainee Program. What exactly IS our year-round Trainee Program, and why is it one of the best ways for a young aspiring dancer to pursue a dance career?
Joffrey Ballet School offers a year-round training ground for pre-professional artists in a multitude of dance disciplines. You have the choice of study at Joffrey Ballet School, either Ballet or Jazz & Contemporary. The goal is to train dancers to work professionally, but most of the top ballet schools around the country do not have this vast range in training. They are focused primarily on a single discipline, and at Joffrey Ballet School we recognize the need for versatility.
We offer two options for location: New York City and Dallas, TX. Dancers from all over the world can choose either program to reap the benefits of the rigorous schedule as well as inspiration from the culture of their new home. Both programs build from a base of classical ballet, and make access to development in a variety of dance forms specific to their concentration.
Our goal is to create a highly employable dancer. Dancers are here to embrace a future in dance, and we are here to help guide them on a successful career path.
