Simultaneous World Premiere!

Introduction and Interactive Q&A LIVE from Lincoln Center!

The first film to chronicle the legendary Joffrey Ballet Company, JOFFREY: MAVERICKS OF AMERICAN DANCE, premieres at the Dance on Camera Festival, January 27-28, at New York's Lincoln Center, with live simulcast through Emerging Pictures' Ballet in Cinema series. The feature-length documentary takes a look at this ground-breaking cultural treasure, known as the first truly American dance company, and chronicles how the Joffrey revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, and setting it to pop and rock music scores. Directed by Bob Hercules (A GOOD MAN), narrated by Mandy Patinkin.
