Joffrey San Francisco is a program created to immerse dancers in the world of contemporary ballet and concert dance. Students will be encouraged to move in new ways and reach beyond the purely classical form of ballet. Daily ballet and pointe classes will enforce a strong technical base, in addition to contemporary ballet, modern, and contemporary dance classes and repertoire that support discovery and freedom within the technical form.

Our Master Faculty is composed of working professionals, instructors, and choreographers, prominent in the sphere of Concert Dance leading our students with expertise, refinement, and mentorship.

Dancers attending both weeks of the program have the opportunity to join our performance. Expand your classical technique into the realm of contemporary ballet with the Joffrey Ballet School.


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

The Joffrey San Francisco Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in San Francisco, California 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.

At Joffrey Ballet School we welcome our students to a safe, exciting and diverse student life where we celebrate our community. Traveling away from home is a big decision, but in doing so you have chosen to increase your opportunities to learn, grow and make life changing connections and memories.

The Residence Halls are located at the Towers at Centennial Square of San Francisco State University. Each apartment, with one double bedroom (two beds) and one triple bedroom (three beds), will have a bathroom, living room area, a two-burner stove, a microwave, and a full fridge. Students will have access to a bundle of amenities, including  indoor and outdoor common areas. Meal plans are required. Our live-in Housing staff are available to students and parents 24 hours a day and assist by providing support and guidance at the dorm and studio. Students can sign up for an escort to and from the studio.

All of our students also enjoy access to our exclusive student life programs and events. The events include site tours, world class workshops, trips to Museums, and Dance productions.

Although it is not required, we highly recommend that students attending the summer intensives stay at the residence hall.
