Another screening of ‘Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance’

If you missed the special events surrounding “Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance,” then don’t miss the additional screening tomorrow, Saturday, 4 February 2012, at several Laemmle Theaters at 11 a.m.

This movie is a loving tribute to the two men who founded the Joffrey Ballet after meeting in Seattle. Going to NYC, they taught classes and then traveled everywhere giving one-night performances. As a company, they were able to rack up many firsts, including the first ballet company to perform in the White House and the first dance company to make the cover of Time magazine.
