Four wonderful ballets by American choreographers ranging from jazzy to humorous to sensual. All were performed beautifully. The Joffrey always lives up to my expectations.

We have seen the Joffrey Ballet numerous times and were awed by the talent of the members of the ballet. It was wonderful to see them perform dances from American Legends such as Jerome Robbins and Twyla Tharp.
