Housing Overview

Sherman Oaks/Los Angeles

Hampton Inn & Suites

Joffrey Ballet School has partnered with the Hampton Inn & Suites to provide discounted housing options for students and their family. The student/legal guardian must contact the hotel directly to make the reservation.

The Hampton Inn & Suites is located in Sherman Oaks and is only a 4 min drive or 15 minute walking distance from the studios.

The price per room for JBS students will be $157 (plus tax) for room and breakfast and $168 (plus tax) for room, breakfast and dinner. The hotel will add additional fees per person to accommodate for housekeeping and meals, if more than one person stays in the room. Dinner is optional. The rooms are either single or double occupancy for the same price. If you plan to attend the program with a friend or you would like us to match you with a roommate, you will be able to split the cost of the room. 

JBS will have a live-in staff member at the hotel for those parents who wish to have their dancer supervised during their stay as if they were staying in one of our dormitories. This is an optional add-on service. The fee for the service is $150 per week per student. For those who have paid the fee, JBS staff will be available to students and parents 24 hours a day while they are staying in the hotel. 

Students traveling alone who are interested in having a roommate should contact the Director of Residence Life, Hanro Janse van Rensburg ( ) to have themselves placed on the roommate request list. The Director of Residence Life will do their best to match you with another student.

All of our students also enjoy access to our student life programs and events. The events include site tours, world class workshops, trips to Museums and Dance productions. *All events are contingent on availability and the COVID-19 pandemic.
