The Joffrey Cirque Arts Intensive offers a unique experience for performers hungry to explore the infinite possibilities of the performing arts. Artistic Directors Matthew Prescott and Maximilien Baud, along with Cirque du Soleil Dance Supervisor Tiffany Baker, guide students into the world of circus arts.

Students train with international professional cirque arts performers, many of whom have performed in Cirque du Soleil’s greatest shows. Students are trained in acrobatics, clowning, aerial, fast track, trampoline, trapeze, teeterboard, silks, equilibrium, juggling, character dance, and other critical components of circus arts. If you’re looking for a connection to Cirque du Soleil, this program is for you! Don’t take our word for it, look at two of our alumni dancers who now perform 10 shows a week for Cirque du Soleil. This program is for everybody no matter your previous training in circus arts. We are here to learn and be inspired.

We celebrate five incredible years of the program by presenting the first Joffrey Cirque Arts Gala this summer. A full evening production of circus arts featuring stars of Cirque du Soleil alongside our incredible students.


The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.

The Joffrey Cirque Arts Las Vegas Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Las Vegas, Nevada 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.
