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.
