"Thank you for giving my daughter an irreplaceable gift, hours of dance under the guidance of true artists who showed daily that they believed in these young dancers. She has come away from Joffrey with more fire in heart to become a professional dancer someday. Joffrey has placed her one step closer.” - Parent of a 2013 program participant
