Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Program Director Era Jouravlev recently taught two Master Classes at the 2018 Energetiks Victorian Dance Festival in Carlton Gardens, Melbourne. While teaching, she awarded 15 select dancers a scholarship to her prestigious New York City dance school. If you missed this exclusive opportunity to get in front of the Joffrey Ballet School in mid-February, don’t worry though! Here’s your second chance!
Dance Informa is excited to announce that we are once again partnering with the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC to host a Summer Scholarship Contest! Now through April 15, dancers can enter to win one of 21 scholarships up for grabs!
The contest offers five musical theatre scholarships, five ballet scholarships, five jazz and contemporary scholarships, and five hip-hop scholarships. Each of these are full tuition scholarships for a two-week intensive. Plus, there will be one full tuition scholarship for one year to the Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Program in NYC. This alone is valued at $15,000!
As the sole news provider for the Joffrey Ballet School, Dance Informa is thrilled to once again partner with this extraordinary organization in this special way. The first scholarship contest was offered two years ago and since then 75 scholarships have been awarded!
Several Australian dancers won scholarships across all styles last year. According to the contest judges, it was tough to choose the winners amongst the hundreds of beautiful entries coming out of Australia and New Zealand.
Originally founded in 1953 by Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino, the Joffrey Ballet School develops and trains professional dancers, having produced over 5,000 working dancers in the last 64 years. To learn more about the school’s various summer programs, head to joffreyballetschool.com.
