I went to Joffrey as one more place to add to my resume before auditioning for jobs. It’s funny how after 20years of ballet being my absolute life, I can honestly say The Joffrey ballet school has turned me off ballet for the rest of my life. I had planned to stay at Joffrey for about two years however left towards the end of the first semester for numerous amounts of reasons... Probably the most important thing to point out first was the carbon monoxide leak in the arranged housing. If this wasn't bad enough, teachers had no empathy or understanding whatsover that me and other housemates had spent hours the night before class trying to move all our belongings across New York, they were too concerned as to our whereabouts and why we hadn't made it to class that morning. My teacher didn't give me the time of day to explain either. Here is a school that people rave about, yet due to the number of housing issues I dealt with during my time there I struggled to even get there which was where all my parents money was going to. It’s also important to mention that no one would come and fix the carbon monoxide leak due to the fact that Joffrey apparently owed so much money. Here is a school that my parents as well as many other parents took extreme lengths to get me there and why did I have to deal with this?? When you've spent a week in a house with a carbon monoxide leak and people are starting to feel sick how is anyone focused on ballet anymore? The whole purpose of being at this place and in this country? Let’s backtrack to my first day, first class, I won’t mention the teachers name, to save her reputation but let me tell you there was no warm welcome to the few new students in the class, she instead complained in front of us about how big the class had become. What a way to welcome new people who have travelled across the world and spent thousands of dollars to be there and she’s pointing out in front of us how annoyed she is at the fact there are new people taking up extra space they don't have in the small studio. My last class, I had another teacher yelling at me majority of the time as I didn't know the choreography to her dance which the rest of the year had all learnt the semester before. How even any professional dancer can go into a new class and be expected to suddenly know choreography off the tops of their head within the first minute of being there and not even being shown first is completely beyond me. Although I found many of the dancers at this school really lovely people I can’t leave out the fact that one of the main things that turned me away from this school was the absolute cattiness of a number of the students in my year. Obviously ballet is a competitive industry and you can’t expect to get by if you can’t deal with that, but here we have a somewhat professional school with the same group of dancers sitting out most days because they are too lazy to actually dance so they would sit at the front of the class day after day whispering and laughing at everyone who is actually trying to have a go. For weeks that I was there clearly being talked about in front of my face I began to think I had a lot to be intimated about, yet when I finally had the chance to watch some of these girls dance they were the most hopeless of them all, yet somehow they still have the hide to laugh and make fun of people who were actually a lot better than them. I didn't want to be at a place with this sort of environment, it was high school drama and it shouldn't have been going on in a professional full-time school. For years I would hear Joffrey Ballet School and think of its name in shining lights, yet you just don’t realise what its really like on the inside until you’ve experienced it for yourself. Although there were a few teachers at this school that actually encouraged me and I felt improvement in their classes, this place was a complete waste of money for my parents. If you have any desire to send your child to a good ballet school, this is not the place, it was highly unprofessional, disorganised and a complete joke.

worst customer service and communication skills EVER. Do not send your child here, your teenager here, and do not go here yourself. I have been over charged and NOT refunded, my friend who works for them has YET to be paid. A total disaster, especially Caleiro (Larisa?)

My friend Ashanta is going there and I hope she come back better than before. She is an excellent dancer , but it's always a way to improve.

Registered for their Elite Dance Tournament put on by Joffery. It was cancelled in Sept/October and I'm still waiting on my refund in May that I have been told is coming. We have attended Joffrey summer programs but will not attend another summer program or event at this point. Very poor communication. No one ever returns emails or phone call. No professionalism. No trust. At this point I completely feel like they have stolen a large amount of money from me.

Great dance program, but TERRIBLE HOUSING! DO NOT HOUSE HERE! Way to expensive, unsanitary and unsafe. Dorms DO NOT look like they do in the "photos" Joffrey places on their websites. For over $1,500 my daughter was placed in a dorm that had rats, 1 bathroom with TEN GIRLS in a hallway, with pieces of ceiling falling into their rooms, broken pluming, etc. Students that were placed into the apartments had to deal with a mosquito infestation, no A/C, no cable, barely any lighting, min. furniture, leakage, AND A CARBON MONOXIDE LEAK!!! The RA'S have yet to help these students with their mosquito infestation, and almost avoided the carbon leak (no carbon monoxide alarm placed in apartment before move in, students installed themselves). I do not feel safe having my daughter stay in the housing that Joffrey provides. Please place your daughter/son in your own housing!!
