There has never been a film Chronicling the legendary Joffrey Ballet, Until now

Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance tells the story of this groundbreaking cultural treasure, known as the first truly American dance company. Narrated by Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules (Bill T. Jones-A Good Man), the film documents how The Joffrey Ballet revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, combining art with social statement, and setting ballets to pop and rock music scores.

"An important piece of not only the company’s history, but also of dance history...the heritage of dance deserves it.” - New York Times
“A colorful, fast-paced tribute to founder Joffrey and his wish to create a truly American entity: a modern-leaning ballet company.” - Sarah Kaufman, Washington Post
This beautifully designed, six panel DVD features rare excerpts from many seminal Joffrey works including Astarte, Trinity and Billboards, as well as breakthrough collaborations with choreographers Twyla Tharp (Deuce Coupe), Kurt Jooss (The Green Table) and Leonide Massine (Parade). Each purchase includes a free series of Joffrey Maverick Memory Digital Photobooks.
