The theatre was very easy to get to and we had dinner afterwards at a lovely restaurant that their website recommended. Parking was only $9 as the restaurant validated it which was a great deal as we were there for 5 hours. The theatre was beautiful and the ballet was wonderful, the music, sets and dancers were unbelievable! Highly recommend this show.

I took my 3 year old daughter for the first time and we both loved it! Our seats through Goldstar were great! The theatre carries little booster seats in the coat check...but make sure you get there early because they only have a limited amount...continued

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.
