Congratulations Kali Phillips!!!eNcore dance center is pleased to announce that our student, Kali Phillips, will be joining the Children’s Division at The Joffrey Academy of Dance, Official School of the Joffrey Ballet, for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Kali took her very first ballet classes at Encore when she was seven years old, and has also studied jazz, hip hop and contemporary. For the past two years, she has been part of Bravo, eNcore’s invitation-only program for students who possess a natural ability, passion, and dedication for dance. In 2017 she began supplementing her studies at Encore with ballet classes and summer camp at the Academy. Now marking her fifth year at Encore, she will be in Miss Ellie’s Advanced Jazz class this fall.
Kali was placed into Ballet IIA within the Joffrey Academy Children’s Division after observation by the Academy Faculty. This intensive classical ballet program requires three days of attendance for a total of five classes per week which include Ballet, Repertoire and Conditioning. Only 30 students are accepted into the Ballet IIA program each year.
The Academy provides a world-class education built on a foundation of classical ballet to fully prepare students for today’s dance world. It is the official school and only training program of The Joffrey Ballet, the home to the Joffrey Company, “America’s preeminent ballet company.”
