Joffrey Circle Committee

Overview

About The Joffrey Circle Committee


The Joffrey Circle Committee is a volunteer, advisory leadership committee, composed of Joffrey Circle members, representing the premier donor category within the Joffrey organization. The Joffrey Circle enables The Joffrey Ballet to provide live music for performances, build and maintain sets, create beautiful costumes, attract the highest caliber of dancers and choreographers, provide excellent dance training, and implement opportunities for underserved communities to engage with this performance art.

The Committee works with Joffrey staff to develop Joffrey Circle Salons and attain new donors and Circle members. Salons are held prior to each of the Joffrey’s annual performances, offering intimate views of the intricacies of staging ballets. Salons provide Circle members and their guest prospects the exclusive opportunity to mingle with fellow Circle members and to meet the dancers, Joffrey artistic and executive management, guest choreographers, and others involved in the productions.
