At the center of the nation’s film and television industry, Joffrey Ballet School presents one of the most versatile and vigorous summer intensives. If you are looking to challenge yourself to become a multifaceted dancer and artist, Joffrey West is the program for you.
Dancers will experience the industry in the heart of Los Angeles, as they take classes in a multitude of genres encompassing both the commercial and concert dance world. This program offers a technical foundation in many different styles from ballet to bollywood, hip hop, jazz, contemporary, breaking, ballroom and musical theatre. Dancers joining for the full 2 weeks will have the opportunity to participate in LA agent talks, lessons in audition technique, and participate in a creative rehearsal process culminating in a fully produced show at a premiere Los Angeles theater.
The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.
The Joffrey West Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Los Angeles, 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.
