In the lobby, there were kids caroling before the program started. It was a good preview for what was to come, a great performance by the Joffrey Ballet. I just didn't like how some people were clapping at the wierdest times, but that's not Joffrey Ballet's fault.

Create indelible memories with this grand holiday tradition. Treat yourself and your family to a sugarplum delight, with Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable music, enchanting dancing, lavish costumes and Oliver Smith’s sets straight out of a child’s dream. Local children’s choirs and young dancers add to the charm.

About the Ticket Supplier: Joffrey Ballet
Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino’s uniquely American vision of dance first took form in 1956. The original company consisted of six dynamic and highly individual dancers. While Robert Joffrey stayed in New York to teach ballet classes and earn money to pay the dancers’ salaries, Gerald Arpino led the troupe across America’s heartland, in a station wagon that pulled a U-Haul trailer. Their repertoire of original ballets by Robert Joffrey set them apart from other small touring companies, who often performed scaled-down versions of the classics. From the beginning, Joffrey and Arpino wanted a company that came out of their roots, out of America.
