Support

What a phenomenal 2018-2019 season the Joffrey has in store for you. Thanks to you, we set record-breaking attendance and box office numbers during the 2017-2018 season, and we continue to honor our past as we look forward to building our future, together as a family.

 

The Joffrey is growing at an unprecedented rate, but we still need your help. This season, I call on each of you to take The Lakonishok Challenge. Through a generous multi-year gift, The Lakonishok Family is asking us and you, our friends and family of the Joffrey, to match this extraordinary donation.

 

These increased funds will help grow Joffrey's artistic foundation and - in turn - add three new Company dancer positions to Joffrey's roster and two additional paid work weeks to the seasonal contracts of all Joffrey artists, seven of which are new this year. That's 46 dancers for 40 weeks out of the year - meaning new productions, more collaborations, and more opportunities to provide first-rate dance education to the youth of Chicago. 

 

I am overcome with gratitude for the support our friends and family of the Joffrey. I invite you to join us as we take the next step in our continued pursuit of artistic excellence. Take the challenge! Make a contribution, be part of this historic time, and help us take advantage of the tremendous opportunity to give you more of what you love.
