The Joffrey Ballet

The Joffrey Ballet A crown jewel of America’s homegrown dance companies, Joffrey’s cutting-edge programs display the inestimable skill of their dancers.

The incomparable Chicago-based Joffrey Ballet returns for a dazzling evening at San Diego Civic Theatre. A crown jewel of America’s homegrown dance companies, Joffrey’s cutting-edge programs display the inestimable skill of their dancers. The program includes Liam Scarlett’s Vespertine, created for the Norwegian National Ballet in 2013 and inspired by the music of Arcangelo Corelli, creating an abstract, sensual work against a backdrop of hanging chandeliers. Joffrey ballet master Nicolas Blanc’s moving Under the Trees’ Voices, created during the pandemic, channels the power of community in the age of social distancing. The Times Are Racing is a “sneaker ballet” that draws inspiration from a variety of dance styles while matching Dan Deacon’s electronic score with youthful impulse and vigor. Creator Justin Peck, resident choreographer of New York City Ballet and Tony Award winner, was recently chosen by Steven Spielberg to choreograph the director’s 2021 remake of West Side Story.
