Balletgoing rarely gets more rewarding... The dancers reach for – and often grasp – new levels of achievement.” Chicago Tribune
“The Joffrey dancers, costumed and lit and shockingly talented, are like a rock concert for the eyes.” Huffington Post
Classically trained to the highest standards, the Chicago-based Joffrey Ballet is considered one of the premier dance companies performing today. Heralded as “America’s Company of Firsts,” the Joffrey was the first dance company to perform at the White House (at Jacqueline Kennedy’s invitation), the first to appear on American television, the first to create a ballet set to rock music and the first to appear on the cover of Time magazine. Committed to artistic excellence and innovation, the company performs a unique repertoire encompassing past masterpieces and cutting-edge works.
