The New York City Ballet Intensive captures the foundation that built the Joffrey Ballet School, developing young classical dancers into expressive, diverse professional artists. Artistic Directors Era Jouravlev & Jo Matos lead a program designed for students 8-25, seeking the complete ballet education. Morning classes build and refine the strongest foundation in ballet technique, pointe, variations, and partnering. Afternoons expand the repertoire, broadening into styles including modern, classical and contemporary ballet, contemporary dance, jazz, world dance, and more. The intensive culminates in a three-week rehearsal process that guides students from studio to stage, performing classical and contemporary works at the renowned Symphony Space theater on the Upper West Side of New York City on Friday, July 22 at 2:30pm and 7:30pm.
