Joffrey Ballet School to Hold Auditions in 60 US Cities in Celebration of 60th Anniversary
Joffrey Ballet School, a world-renowned dance center offering the most versatile and highest quality training, will open its doors to even more prospective students for its 2014 season auditions. In celebration of its 60th year anniversary, Joffrey Ballet School will invite dancers to try out in more than 60 cities across the U.S. as well as multiple international locations. The school has year-round programs in New York City and also produces the world's largest summer training program with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Miami, Georgia, Florence Italy, and in Russia with the Bolshoi Ballet. A new location in Denver will join the 2014 summer offerings.
"Founders Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino started their legacy with six dancers in a U-Haul, touring the nation and bringing dance performances and education to audiences that didn't have access to dance," said Executive Director, Christopher D'Addario. "As Joffrey Ballet School celebrates 60 years, there is no better way to honor our founders than our dedication to increasing accessibility to Joffrey training through our robust offerings of audition locations and dance training programs."
With one of the highest success rates in graduating students joining professional companies, Joffrey Ballet School's audition process continues to be highly competitive. Last year the school received applications from 7,000 students and expects audition numbers to increase this year to nearly 9,000. Additionally, Joffrey Ballet School is a top selection of enthusiastic dancers who want to have access to quality dance training and the ability to work with well-known choreographers.
