Known as "the company of firsts," Joffrey Ballet was the first dance company to perform at the White House, the first to appear on television, the first to appear on the cover of Time magazine and the first to have a major motion picture based on them (Robert Altman's The Company). Experience this must-see dance company's innovative dance work live as they present Stories in Motion, a trio of works from three exciting contemporary choreographers. Works include Balanchine's Prodigal Son, based on the biblical tale of sin and redemption from one of the greatest choreographers of all time. Antony Tudor's masterpiece Lilac Garden explores the conflicting emotions of a young woman who's trapped by the strictures of Edwardian culture and forced to give up the young man she loves. Stories in Motion also features the Joffrey premiere of RAkU, in which Ukranian-born choreographer Yuri Possokhov uses the burning of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto as the point of departure for a story of love, treachery, separation and tragedy.

The show was outstanding -The costumes were great -The performances were the best -it was so sweet. The only thing was our seating we had a partial view would have preferred better seats .My girls liked it very much.
Good family outing.
Live narration, intimate seating and a large cast led by a corps of professional dancers make this Nutcracker the ideal family outing for the holidays. The Schaumburg Dance Ensemble’s 18th annual production is a colorful spectacle with vibrant costumes, lavish sets and delightful choreography, held in the beautiful Prairie Center for the Arts, conveniently located with ample free parking on the premises.
