The Joffrey Ballet School prides itself on providing the students with several opportunities to perform throughout the year. The performance experience for the Jazz and Contemporary Trainee is an extension of their artistic and technical studies, culminating in full-scale productions in sold-out New York City venues that are attended by industry professionals and the press. Performances provide the student with the exposure necessary to succeed in the dance field. All Trainees are given the opportunity to perform.
The casting is determined by the Artistic Director who bases his decision on talent, experience, and the level of training achieved, but everyone will be given a role and/or an opportunity for an understudy position.
