Ballet is often thought as a European import, a mainstay of “high” culture that has a long history in countries
outside of America. But The Joffrey Ballet breaks the stereotypical mold of what you think of when ballet comes to mind.
As a uniquely American form of dance, theater tickets for this troupe are well worth their price.
The troupe’s history extends back to 1956, when the troupe was created from six performers who wanted to bring a
distinct, American influence to ballet. They toured across the heartland in a station wagon pulling a U-Haul trailer. From
those humble beginnings, they’ve gone on to perform in more than 400 cities in all 50 states—and have performed
internationally, as well.
The company has earned its reputation for both classic works as well as original productions, such as “Billboards,”
a full-length work that celebrates the work of Prince. In 1995, The Joffrey Ballet made Chicago its home. Theater
tickets for this event are a rare thing, so get The Joffrey Ballet tickets
while you still can.
