Be aware that if you are a TRUE beginner, the "adult beginner" class may be a bit much for you. If you've never heard any of the terms or learned the foot positions, you may find yourself lost. However, the teachers seem lovely and willing to work with you, so there is the option of private/semi private lessons to catch up and make yourself feel comfortable in the large classes. I also have seen that there are multi-week workshops where they take you through everything. Those aren't covered by groupon, but would be great for someone completely new to ballet. For someone coming back after a few years, it was the perfect class.

Could be more clean-love the classes but bathrooms and locker rooms could be cleaned on a routinely basis. Hair, food, water always on floors and lockers are consistently dirty. Would make a better experience and would like to invite others/come back. Thanks so much!

Thank you for bridging the gap between the fear of taking class at a prestigious ballet school and promoting a great atmosphere to squash those fears!

From Our Editors

In the 60 years since Robert Joffrey founded his school, graduates have gone on to dance in major ballet companies as well as modern and contemporary troupes. And it's easy to see why they'd have such diverse careers: Joffrey pioneered modern music in ballet with his 1967 opus Astarte, for which he commissioned original rock and roll, and then with Billboards, which was set to the sweet funk of Prince. With teachers ranging from a veteran of the National Ballet Company of Guatemala to the ghost of Gene Kelly, the school continues to blend multiple dance styles into its balletic training, building well-rounded dancers versed in jazz, contemporary, character, and hip-hop. All of the training tends to pay off; graduates of the Joffrey Ballet School frequently go on to shine in companies including the Joffrey Ballet, the American Ballet Theater, the New York City Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet.
