The Joffrey Experience celebrates its 6th year of shaping the contemporary dancer’s artistry through contemporary dance, contemporary ballet, improvisation with live accompaniment and creative process.
Dancers will learn valuable professional tools including performance techniques, photography direction and experience in-depth creative processes with New York choreographers. Dancers will experience a professional photo shoot and work with a photographer and the Artistic Director of the Jazz & Contemporary Trainee Program to create professional portfolio looks and images.
Each week will culminate in an on-stage showing at the Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center.
Small class sizes with faculty that are nationally- and internationally-successful artists in performance, choreography and teaching give young dancers the tools they need to dance more fully, with power and artistry.
Faculty have worked with artists and in venues such as:
Limón Dance Company
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Complexions Contemporary Ballet
Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch
Radio City Music Hall
The Metropolitan Opera Ballet
Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company
