The Joffrey is truly committed to providing high quality, easily accessible dance instruction to all students in the Chicago community. Through the Community Engagement Extensions Program, students in 1st through 10th grade are able to attend tuition-free classes at the Joffrey Tower to improve and enhance their learning. As part of the program, students learn dance steps, terminology, choreography, experience performing before a live audience, and develop skills including confidence, self- discipline, and physical awareness. This experience allows them the opportunity to continue developing mentally and physically through the study of dance. Our Extensions students come from an array of Chicago Public Schools and neighborhoods around the city.
