Step into the rhythm of creativity and elegance at Joffrey Las Vegas Jazz and Contemporary 2024, a groundbreaking program that seamlessly blends the commercial and concert dance worlds. Celebrating dance as a vibrant and universal language, this immersive experience pays homage to the legendary Gerald Arpino, co-founder of the Joffrey Ballet, and his iconic creation, “Billboards.”

We are honored to pay homage to the visionary choreographer Gerald Arpino, a pioneer who transcended traditional boundaries in dance. Co-founder of the Joffrey Ballet alongside Robert Joffrey, Arpino’s legacy lives on through his innovative work. “Billboards,” a masterpiece that merges the commercial and concert dance worlds, inspires this program, reflecting Arpino’s commitment to breaking new ground. Embracing the spirit of Arpino’s groundbreaking vision, this program uniquely blends the dynamic energy of commercial dance with the artistic depth of concert dance. Participants will explore various movement styles, from the commercially driven precision to the expressive freedom of contemporary concert dance.

Led by accomplished instructors with experience in both commercial and concert dance, participants will receive comprehensive training. The program is designed to nurture versatility, encouraging dancers to seamlessly navigate between the commercial and concert dance realms while maintaining a strong technical foundation.

The program will culminate in a spectacular stage showcase, where participants will present a fusion of commercial and concert dance to a live audience. This showcase celebrates individual growth and showcases the program’s commitment to bridging the gap between these two influential dance genres.

Joffrey Las Vegas Jazz and Contemporary 2024 invites you to join a dance experience that honors tradition while embracing innovation. In the spirit of Gerald Arpino, let us break barriers and explore the limitless possibilities where commercial and concert dance converge.
