Dancers can receive the exceptional training that the Joffrey Ballet School is known for and at the same time work towards a college degree. Students would enroll in the Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Program for dance training and simultaneously at NJCU, for academic studies. This is an amazing opportunity for any dancer. A college degree opens up so many doors and gives dancers an advantage not only in their dance career, but after that career is done.
The Joffrey BFA with NJCU is a program that allows you to spend your time in the studio. Your studies are focused on training. You are able to participate in classes such as pas de deux, variations and contemporary ballet, in our Ballet Division, and musical theater, hip hop and street jazz, in our Jazz & Contemporary Division, all four years of your training. In many programs these course offerings, which are important for your professional development, are only offered for limited semesters.
