"The Joffrey Ballet has always embraced the challenge of honoring the past while looking towards the future. While respecting our heritage, the Joffrey Ballet celebrates a new generation. I love the phrase 'new generation,' with its reference to both 'time' and 'creation." - Artistic Director, Ashley C. Wheater
