Joffrey – At Home In Chicago

A dozen years after the Joffrey Ballet moved to Chicago, director Gerald Arpino says the city has become the ideal home. Chicago is “a typical American city in that it’s still striving for its standards. It has that pioneer quality about it. It’s ambitious – you can see it in the architecture, you can see it in the museums. Yet it’s still always looking forward to new frontiers in the arts. This is always what the Joffrey has been about to me.”
