Joffrey Texas is not a dance school, it is a dance organization that provides supplemental opportunities for dancers and studios. In addition to our seasonal intensives, Joffrey Texas provides coaching, choreography, and private technique lessons. Studio owners and parents can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Joffrey Texas is working to make dance more accessible by using a sliding pay scale for virtual group classes. Students can choose to pay the suggested rate, or they can choose to pay more or less than the suggested rate. Students who are able to pay more help those who are not able to pay as much. Our educators are not informed of students' pay rate so that all dancers are treated with kindness and fairness. Through this flexible system we can help each other enjoy the gift of dance.
Auditions are not required for our 2021 intensives.
We provide high quality events without excluding anyone. If you love to dance, want to work hard and grow as an artist Joffrey Texas has a place for you.
Payment for seasonal intensives may be made online via PayPal. Payment for virtual classes are made through the host platform.
For those attending in-person events, Joffrey Texas will address each case individually and come to an agreement with the student if they must leave early or arrive late.
