The Joffrey Ballet Announces February Events

"Each piece in our winter program is an American portrait, created by some of our most important choreographers, with music by some of our most significant composers," said Joffrey Artistic Director Ashley C. Wheater. "Underlying is a sense of whimsy, vitality, romance, warmth, sensuality, and most importantly, dynamism. Combining the work of Twyla Tharp, Jerome Robbins, Gerald Arpino and Stanton Welch on the same stage offers an opportunity to witness the diversity, and the shared thread, of the American experience."

"The Joffrey is America's ballet company, and we're celebrating that with a 'made in America' program," added Joffrey Executive Director Christopher Clinton Conway. "In light of all the frustration with politics in Washington over the Fiscal Cliff, we need to celebrate what makes this country the greatest - it is the people and the art that they freely create, perform and celebrate."

Single tickets, which range from $31 to $152, are available for purchase at The Joffrey Ballet's official Box Office located in the lobby of Joffrey Tower, 10 E. Randolph Street, as well as the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University Box Office, all Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, by telephone at (800) 982-2787, or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
