JoffreyRED Contemporary Ballet Summer Intensive is the perfect fusion of classical and contemporary ballet. The program will provide a glimpse into the newly created, year-round JoffreyRED Contemporary Ballet Pre-Professional Program that is an extension of the Los Angeles based professional BalletRED Company. Artistic Director, Josie Walsh, together with renowned professionals, instructors, and choreographers lead a daily training ground for classical and contemporary ballet, modern and contemporary dance.

Dancers will study techniques intended to prepare them for the cutting-edge contemporary ballet repertoire of BalletRED. A strong classical foundation will start each day with Ballet Technique, Pointe and Partnering, while afternoons will expand into genres including Contemporary Ballet, Modern, Contemporary Dance Improvisation and Ballroom.

Dancers attending both weeks of the program have the opportunity to join our performance and be a part of a new creation at a premier Los Angeles theater.


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

The JoffreyRED Contemporary Ballet Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Los Angeles, 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.
