Master Class Series
- Ages 15+
- Requirements Registration
The Joffrey Academy of Dance is thrilled to offer a Master Class Series that provides the opportunity for Academy students to work with members of The Joffrey Ballet. Led by featured Joffrey Company Artists, each week offers a distinctive experience with rotating teachers and content, making no two classes the same.
What is the Master Class Series?
The Joffrey Academy of Dance is offering a Master Class Series taught by various Joffrey Company artists and professionals. This two-and-a-half-hour class features 90 minutes of a traditional ballet class paired with 60 minutes of varying class content. Class content may include strengthening and conditioning, learning company repertoire, guest lectures, and more. On special occasions, ballet classes may be substituted with off-site performances, meet and greets, and other opportunities. Class content and location are subject to vary. Students interested in dancing on pointe in this class must currently be working on pointe outside of this class; all other students are welcome to participate in ballet slippers.
Who can sign up for the Master Class Series?
This series is available to Pre-Professional Division Levels V and VI, Conservatory, Ballet Trainee, Contemporary Ballet Trainee, Studio Company, and advanced dancers in the Adult Open Division. Because our Adult Open Division is open to the public on a drop-in basis, any advanced dancers in the Chicago community or those visiting the area are welcome to join. The Master Class Series features drop-in classes that can be registered for on an individual basis. Registration for Pre-Professional Level V, Conservatory, Ballet Trainee, Contemporary Ballet Trainee, Studio Company, and Adult Open Division students may be completed in the same way registration occurs for all Adult Open Division classes.
