Nestled in the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens, the Joffrey South Ballet Intensive is the ideal setting for the student who wishes to have an intimate, supportive, and rigorous training experience while simultaneously living on an iconic historic college campus. Students are challenged on a daily basis and given the tools they need to grow beyond their expectations.

The core curriculum of the Ballet Intensive includes 2 ballet technique classes per day, pointe/variations and conditioning each day, and one class per day in the jazz/contemporary mediums. Ballet students will also take master classes in Dunham Technique with guest faculty Rodney Hamilton.

The program will culminate with a fully produced joint performance within the University of Georgia Department of Dance’s New Dance Theatre, giving the students a well-deserved sense of accomplishment for their summer studies.


The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.

The Joffrey South Ballet Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Athens, Georgia 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.
