Trainee & BFA Auditions

In-Person auditions are your opportunity to be considered for the year-round Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Programs and the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program, in association with New Jersey City University. Experience a day with our Artistic Directors, to be considered for acceptance and potential merit-based scholarships. Your audition will include multiple classes and a tour of our dormitory and studios.

Dancers can also audition for the Trainee/BFA program at any of our Summer Audition Locations and by submitting a Digital Audition.
