Joffrey Colorado is an intimate program dedicated to the study of ballet. Students work with a small group of acclaimed faculty who fully invest in shaping a young dancer’s technique and artistry. Students participate in multiple ballet classes each day, refining their work in Ballet, Pointe, and Variations. Dancers also supplement their training with Jazz, Improvisation, Katherine Dunham Technique and yoga/conditioning.


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 Boulder, Colorado 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.
