Repertory Workshop

Repertory Workshop is presented in a studio environment conducted by a Foundation repetiteur. In the Repertory Workshop, dancers will learn excerpts and/or variations from Arpino or Joffrey ballets. This is a good introduction to schools or dance organizations that are unfamiliar with the Arpino/Joffrey works. The exploration into the choreography emphasizes the importance of having a classical center which, in turn, frees the dancers to push boundaries.

Lectures

Lectures will present the history and legacy of Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey by a Foundation speaker. Lectures can be supplemented by video, audio, and/or photographic formats.

Master Class

Master Class is presented in a studio environment conducted by a Foundation repetiteur. A master class is based on Joffrey's teaching style which is an eclectic synthesis of the major ballet techniques: Russian, Italian, French and Bournonville.
