Artistic director, The Joffrey Ballet
Replacing the founder of a high-profile ballet company is no easy task, but since Ashley Wheater took the helm of the Joffrey in 2007 he has managed to pay due homage to the artistry and leadership of Gerald Arpino while breathing new life into the company’s repertory with works by innovative young choreographers like Edwaard Liang and Christopher Wheeldon.
