Joffrey Colorado, relocated this year to Dallas, Texas, is an intimate program dedicated to the study of ballet. Students work with a small group of faculty who really invest in the individual dancers. Student’s participate in multiple ballet classes each day and work on refining their technique. Interspersed during the day are classes in the Dunham technique. This style of modern dance was built on the ballet technique so it is a wonderful bridge into the modern style for dancers who have a passion for ballet. Dancers learn to open their mind, body and spirit through movement.
The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.
The Joffrey Colorado Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Dallas, Texas this summer. In the unlikely event of a government mandate which prohibits dance instruction, all students registered for in-person programming will be offered their choice of a refund (less registration and processing fees) or transfer to another program.
