They call The Joffrey Ballet “America’s Company of Firsts.”

The first dance company to perform at the White House. The first to appear on television. The first American company to visit Russia. The first classical dance company to go multimedia. The first to commission a rock ‘n’ roll ballet. The first and only dance company to appear on the cover of Time. And the first company to have had a major motion picture based on it, Robert Altman’s The Company.
