Founded in 1953 by Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino the Joffrey Ballet School is considered one of the premier ballet schools in the country. The school has produced graduates who have gone on to work for major classical ballet, modern, and contemporary dance companies. The Joffrey has also been groundbreaking; it was the first ballet school to sanction the use of rock music in its teaching. Today dance students flock to New York hoping to train at this renowned institute.
