Juilliard Dance Online

Share on:

Program Dates: June 28-July 2, 2021

The Juilliard Dance Online Experience is a specially curated one-week online program designed to both introduce dancers to Juilliard and to provide them with information about college dance programs that will assist them in making decisions about their education that are in line with their professional goals.

Through technique classes, discussions, and collaborations with special guest choreographers, dancers have the opportunity to meet faculty, students, and staff, and will meet one-on-one with either Dance Division Dean and Director, Alicia Graf Mack, or Associate Director, Mario Alberto Zambrano.

The program is limited to dancers who have completed at least one year of high school/secondary school and who will not graduate before the program begins. Generally, this means that dancers in the program are aged 15-17 and have completed grade 9, 10, or 11. International students are welcome to apply. All classes, rehearsals and other activities will take place live via Zoom and will be designed to accommodate spaces of all sizes.

Detailed information on the admissions process is available below. Questions may be directed to  [email protected].


We welcome applicants who are:

  • advanced dancers with significant prior training in classical ballet. Familiarity with classic modern dance techniques is helpful.

  • in grade 9, 10, or 11 at the time of application (typically aged 15-17 at the time of the program).
