The Joffrey Ballet Bridge Program starts in CPS, where teaching artists bring ballet to their students. From there, students are hand-selected by the teaching artists to attend weekly ballet classes every Saturday at Joffrey Tower from February through June. The students then attend a two-week summer intensive, where they continue to build their ballet technique and choreography skills.

Academy faculty selected the following ten students for scholarships, allowing these students to take Academy classes tuition-free through the Academy until they graduate high school.
