“Swift, sinuous choreography and the superb ensemble of youthful dancers” (The Washington Post) are the hallmarks of Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet. The company was the first dance company to perform at the White House; first to appear on television; first classical dance company to go multi-media; first to commission a rock ‘n’ roll ballet; and the first and only dance company to appear on the cover of Time Magazine.
