JoffreyRED Contemporary Ballet Intensive is our preeminent program for dancers ready to explore the world of contemporary ballet.

Artistic Director Josie Walsh provides an experience that shapes young dancers into artists. Students will be encouraged to move in new ways and reach beyond the purely classical form of ballet. Daily ballet and pointe classes will enforce a strong technical base, in addition to classes and repertoire that support discovery and freedom within the technical form.

Our Master Faculty is composed of working professionals, instructors, and choreographers, prominent in the sphere of Concert Dance. These leaders in the field are ready to introduce students to contemporary ballet with expertise, refinement, and mentorship.

Dancers attending both weeks of the program have the opportunity to join our performance and be a part of a new creation at a premiere Los Angeles theater. Expand your classical technique into the realm of contemporary ballet with the Joffrey Ballet School.
