A Virtual Robert Joffrey Masterclass

5-part series


Over the summer and through the fall, a series of three Robert Joffrey masterclasses were presented to enthusiastic reception.  We are so grateful to those who participated in these events.  These unique virtual experiences offered an opportunity to learn first hand from The Gerald Arpino Foundation’s repetiteurs who trained directly under Robert Joffrey.

Each masterclass is curated to provide a learning experience for dancers and teachers.  Robert Joffrey enjoyed teaching students not only ballet class but also about dance history.  Accompanying each class is a Lecture Demonstration.  Mr. Joffrey used this format to educate audiences about the rigorous training of a dancer and to create an appreciation for dance.

The foundation will continue to present parts 4 and 5 of the series at future dates.  Please keep checking our Facebook page and website for further information and updates about future masterclasses.  We look forward to seeing you there!
