- Artistic Director(s):
Joffrey San Francisco is a program created to immerse dancers in 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 contemporary ballet, modern, and contemporary dance 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. Expand your classical technique into the realm of contemporary ballet with the Joffrey Ballet School.
The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.
The Joffrey San Francisco Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in San Francisco, California 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.
