Official trailer Joffrey Mavericks of American Dance

World Premiere!

A documentary by Bob Hercules

Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance takes a look at the Joffrey Ballet, the groundbreaking cultural treasure known as the first truly American dance company.

Narrated by Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules (Bill T. Jones: A Good Man), the film documents how the Joffrey revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, combining art with social statement and setting ballets to pop and rock music scores.

The film features rare excerpts from many seminal Joffrey works including Astarte, Trinity and Billboards.

Plus, a live, interactive panel/q&a with talent from the Joffrey.
