The Joffrey Ballet School’s New York City Jazz & Contemporary Pre-Professional Intensive offers dancers a unique opportunity to study contemporary, commercial, and concert dance. The curriculum, simulating a day as a professional dancer, offers a daily morning ballet technique class, followed by an immersive afternoon in contemporary and commercial repertory. The day finishes with presentations and discussions which prepare dancers for the professional field – complete with personalized mentoring sessions to help each dancer pursue their dreams in the most successful way possible. As dancers learn to embody professional-level repertoire inside the studio, they also learn what it means to thrive within these various dance company and industry cultures through the guidance of the program’s generous and well-rounded faculty. The student emerges from this program more adaptable than ever in both technical and artistic realms.
