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 a strong 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, kinetics, injury prevention and more.

Students can choose to register for the non-performance or performance track. The performance track culminates in a fully produced performance following a three-week rehearsal process that guides students from studio to stage, performing classical and contemporary works at a renowned theater in New York City on Friday, July 19, 2024. To participate in the performance track, students must attend at least the last three weeks (July 1 – July 19) of the intensive. 

Work directly with our year-round Joffrey Ballet School faculty, renowned guest instructors, and working choreographers whose extensive experience will elevate a dancer’s training to the next level.
