Joffrey Colorado is an intimate program dedicated to an immersive study of ballet. Students work with a small group of acclaimed faculty under the artistic direction of Colleen Barnes who fully invest in shaping a dancer’s technique and artistry.
Students participate in two ballet technique classes each day, refining their work in Ballet, Pointe, and Variations. Dancers are supported in their ballet technique with daily classes in the jazz and contemporary mediums, as well as a conditioning class at the beginning or end of their day.

For dancers participating in the last week (July 15 – July 19) of the Intensive, the program will culminate in an informal performance at Boulder Ballet Studios at Dairy Arts Center.


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

The Joffrey Colorado Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in Boulder, Colorado 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.
