Kidz Central Station is excited to partner with the famed Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. Their mission is to transform passionate dance students into artists able to collaborate and evolve in a fast-changing society. This involves making dance fun for our youngest performers. The Joffrey curriculum was created to encourage age appropriate creativity, musicality, and physicality. We want to help our parents get to know the exciting summer programs available for our music, dance, and theater loving children.
The Joffrey Ballet School presents summer dance camps hosting dancers ages 3 to 18 in several sessions from June through August 2018. Auditions not necessary unless applying for scholarship; you will be placed during the first day of orientation.
