(1 - 7 Week Sessions)

Summer Virtual Intensive 

Experience the Joffrey difference; you will be challenged, you will be driven, you will elevate your artistry and transformed as a dancer. We are the fuel that drives your passion for dance.

We are excited to announce that, despite the impact of the pandemic, we will continue to deliver a world class faculty and an intelligently designed curriculum, meeting the needs of our dancers, in an online platform. Using the best practices in dance pedagogy, the Joffrey Ballet School faculty have implemented a platform for remote dance instruction which has been successfully delivered to our professional students for the past two months.  Each day of the program will begin with a conditioning class, followed by four dance classes. Additionally, if you registered for the performance track (June 29 – July 17th only) there will be an additional 1hr choreography/rehearsal creative process daily with our esteemed choreographers culminating in an online performance. 

All classes have been redesigned to maintain and refine the skills of the dancers in a smaller space. Our faculty has become expert in correcting a dancer effectively utilizing all cognitive and self-exploration techniques, and prior knowledge, to stand in lieu of the need to manually manipulate the dancer to achieve a correction. This technique will assist in developing a skill necessary to all dancers, to self-correct through guidance by the teacher. We will have no more than 25 students per zoom class to ensure detailed corrections are being applied and each student receives attention. 

The program will include the following classes adapted to remote instruction: Conditioning, Classical Ballet Technique, Pointe and Variations, Contemporary Ballet, Various Contemporary and Modern Dance Techniques, Flamenco, Latin Jazz, Jazz, Contemporary and Classical Ballet Repertory.

This document lists the most important housing policies. Please refer to the housing manual of your assigned facility for a complete list of rules, policies, and procedures.

We will do our best to honor roommate requests that are completed and remain within the established guidelines.

A dancer may request up to a maximum of three roommates for a total of four dancers in a chain. Please note that all roommate requests must be completed by both sets of parents, at least fourteen days prior to arrival.

Please note that confirmed roommates will be in the same room, but we are unable to accommodate requests for a bunk assignment near another dancer. Dancers are assigned their beds by their Resident Assistants based on numerous factors including medical conditions, sleepwalking, etc. and these assignments may not be changed during the arrival process.

Roommate Requests will be asked during Registration.

All students have the option to purchase a Meal Plan catered by Panera Bread. Panera Bread provides students with breakfast and dinner daily, which will be setup in the lobby.

The meal plan may not be suitable for every student. We do our best to provide a variety of food for a large group of people. If your dancer has severe/life threatening allergies, gluten allergy, nut allergy, is a picky eater, etc. we strongly suggest you not purchase the meal plan. RA’s take students to the grocery store when they Check In on Sunday.

Should your dancer be on the Meal Plan and have dietary restrictions or allergies, please note this when registering and please email the DRL before your dancer arrives so that our caterers have sufficient notice to prepare meals for your dancer. If students are dismissed from housing, they are also dismissed from the meal plan. You must register for the meal plan when registering for the program. If you did not purchase the meal plan when registering, but wish to add the meal plan, you must contact Guest Relations one week prior to your dancer’s arrival. 

If dancers are attending multiple weeks, they may choose to purchase one or more weeks of the plan and do not have to buy the plan for all weeks attending. If your dancer is unsure about the food, we suggest taking this route.  

Please note that lunch is NOT included in the meal plan. We recommend that students pack a healthy lunch and snacks to eat between meals. Due to severe food allergies, dancers are NOT permitted to pack anything with peanuts in their lunch. 

Due to FDA laws about proper food temperature and storage, Panera serves food that is intended to be eaten at room temperature. Any food meant to be kept cold will be delivered in ice packs. All food delivered by Panera is safe to be consumed after being left out for a couple of hours. If students wish to heat up their food, they can do so in their kitchens.
