Nestled on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens, the Joffrey South Ballet Intensive is the ideal intensive for aspiring ballet students. Student’s work intimately with a small dedicated group of faculty. This encouraging environment is an ideal setting for young dancers who may be traveling away from home for the first time. Multiple classes in ballet and pointe/pre-pointe are held each day further helping the dancer apply and absorb the many individual corrections they are given. Students are challenged on a daily basis and given the tools they need to grow beyond their expectations.


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.
