Joffrey Ballet Concert Group at Seaside
Mesmerizing the audience last year with its debut performance in Seaside, the New York City based Joffrey Ballet Concert Group is back in full swing on Saturday, May 7, at 6 p.m. in the Seaside Amphitheater. Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy the show. Free and open to the public.
The one and a half hour show will include 30 Joffrey company members performing a variety of dances ranging from modern and jazz to classical ballet. The Joffrey Ballet Concert Group, the performance company of the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City, is under the direction of DavisRobertson, choreographer and artistic director.
“After a magnificent performance and standing ovation last year, the Joffrey Ballet Concert Group is back to bring our community yet another outstanding dance performance filled with excitement, variety, and intrigue. This performance will be equal to a show one would see in New York, Atlanta, or Chicago, except it’s in the magical atmosphere of Seaside.” said Seleta Hayes Howard, Seaside Nutcracker Ballet Mistress and Special Projects Director.
The Joffrey Ballet Concert Group has dazzled audiences all over the world for more than 50 years. The Joffrey Ballet School has remained on the forefront of American dance education since 1953. The school’s most advanced students are chosen by audition to perform and the company serves as a platform for some of the nation’s best young dancers to launch their professional careers at major dance companies such as American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and other companies throughout the United States and Europe.
