Summer Intensive Auditions
Dancers ages 8 to 25 are invited to audition for any of our worldwide Joffrey Ballet School Summer Intensives during our 2023 Audition Tour. Auditions are held at in-person locations across the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico, and beyond!
All dancers, new and returning, are required to audition, in consideration for Summer 2023:
BFA & Trainee Auditions
In-Person and Virtual auditions are your opportunity to be considered for the year-round Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Programs in New York City and Texas, as well as our Bachelor of Fine Arts Program, in association with New Jersey City University. Concentrations include Ballet and Jazz & Contemporary.
Pre-professional dancers ages 13 to 25 are encouraged to apply, to experience a day of classes with our Artistic Directors and Master Faculty. The audition day concludes with a tour of our dormitory, to provide prospective students with a glimpse of what life could be at the Joffrey Ballet School.
Dancers unable to attend an in-person or virtual audition can submit a video in consideration for acceptance and potential merit-based scholarship to our Summer Intensives and year-round BFA & Trainee Programs.
- Digital auditions for our 2022 Summer Programs are accepted until three weeks prior to the start date of the selected Summer Intensive. Dancers ages 8 to 25 are encouraged to apply.
- Digital Auditions for BFA & Trainee Programs are accepted throughout the year. Applications are accepted for pre-professional dancers ages 13 to 25.
We make dance fun while learning. Classes rooted in the foundation of ballet begin at age 2 and build to age 7. Classes will be taught in person at our Manhattan or Long Island City studios.
For students who are new to dance, we offer the opportunity to take a trial class before registering!
This is a great program for the beginner to the advanced dancer that provides a nurturing learning environment for a young dancer. New students will have to schedule a placement class.
