Nestled in the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens, the Joffrey South Jazz & Contemporary Intensive is the ideal setting for the student who wishes to have an intimate, supportive, and rigorous training experience while simultaneously living on an iconic historic college campus. Students are challenged on a daily basis and given the tools they need to grow beyond their expectations.

The core curriculum of the Jazz & Contemporary Intensive includes daily classes in jazz, modern/contemporary, hip hop, and conditioning, with ballet technique classes 1-4 days per week.

For dancers participating in the last week (June 24 – June 28) of the Intensive, the program will culminate with a fully produced joint performance within the University of Georgia Department of Dance’s New Dance Theatre, giving the students a well-deserved sense of accomplishment for their summer studies.
