Honoring the Legacy of Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino

As a not-for-profit organization, we offer qualified organizations and institutions the right to license the choreographic works of Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino and will partner with them in all aspects of staging the choreography, overseeing the technical production, and maintaining the artistic integrity of the choreographers.

The Foundation is committed to making the ballets accessible to all audiences and will take into consideration each organization’s artistic and financial profile to determine licensing fees.

The Foundation offers repertory workshops, lectures, and master classes dedicated to teaching a new generation of dancers the choreography and style of Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino.
