Joffrey Ballet School, New York, is returning to VDF
The Joffrey Ballet School is thrilled to return to the Energetiks VDF 2024 Dance Festival! This year, Matthew Prescott and TRIX will be coming direct from the School in New York City to teach classes in Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop.
Matthew Prescott, born and raised in Idaho, graduated high school from Interlochen Arts Academy and attended the inaugural year of the Joffrey/New School in New York City. In 2000, he joined the Joffrey Ballet for a number of years before setting out as a freelance artist.
“TRIX” is a very talented Hip Hop Choreographer/Performer with over 12 years dance experience and 10 years of teaching experience. Trix is currently a guest faculty member at Broadway Dance Center and Peridance. In addition to those well-known schools, he is also a Choreographer for the Joffrey Ballet School’s Hip Hop Program and its audition tour recruiting talent from all over the states for the summer intensives!
Participating students will be considered for placement and potential merit-based scholarship to Joffrey’s worldwide summer intensives in Ballet, Jazz & Contemporary, Musical Theater and Hip Hop. Some dancers will even be invited to join their year-round Trainee Program in New York City, or their Pre-Professional Programs in Texas and Los Angeles!
To participate in these classes, it is necessary to pre-register online before the event and to visit the Joffrey Ballet School Booth at VDF to pick up your participant number. Without this number you will not be able to participate in the class. Class times and registration information will be available soon!
The masterclasses are part of the VDF Weekend lineup, and only available to VDF ticket holders.
Teachers are welcome to come and watch to gleam some inspiration from our guest teachers and witness a class. Teachers attending Vitality Teacher Day are also welcome and their Teacher Day pass grants access to all the weekend classes to join in or watch.
