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.

The Joffrey Ballet School is proud to partner with Pace Cafeteria and Panera that serves two hearty kid-friendly meals per day. Enjoy breakfast burritos with veggies, sausage, pepper jack cheese, tomatoes, trail mix with dried fruit, and mixed nuts on the side. Imagine a wonderful grilled herbed chicken breast, a flavor-filled soba noodle salad with edamame and cucumber relish, bok choy, carrot ginger dressing, accompanied by a side of watermelon. The food is delicious and healthy–perfect for the developing dancer. We care about you and your child and have worked very hard to partner with the best food providers in the NYC area.

Non-Refundable Tuition and Other Fees

It is the policy of the Center for American Dance / Joffrey Ballet School that all tuition and other fees paid shall not be refunded at any time, regardless of the time of cancellation by the student or student’s parents or guardians or whether the relevant program has commenced. In the event that the relevant program has been cancelled by the Center for American Dance / Joffrey Ballet School, the School will make best efforts to move the student into a substantially similar program; in the event that no such substantially similar program exists, the School will issue a full refund.
In some instances we are able to offer a credit towards a future Joffrey program. The Registration Fee, All Deposits, and all Processing Fees are non-refundable and will be forfeited.
Prior to May 1st, a credit for any remaining tuition and some additional payments may be placed in the dancer’s name to be used the following summer.
After May 1st, all payments are non-refundable unless due to injury or illness certified by a Dr’s. note. A partial credit may be used towards next summer at Joffrey Ballet School’s Discretion.
