Required for Acceptance
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.
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 21. To participate in the performance track, students must attend the last three weeks of the intensive.
Work directly with our year-round Joffrey Ballet School faculty, master guest instructors, and working choreographers whose extensive experience will elevate a dancer’s training to the next level.
The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.
The New York City Ballet Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in New York, New York 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.
