The Joffrey's "Swan Lake" is Magnificent!

Joffrey-SwanLake-sm.jpg

**** Highly Recommended **** The Joffrey Ballet’s “Swan Lake” is exquisite - trés magnifique! When I talk about dance companies, it’s frustrating when someone slots the Joffrey into the modern, cutting edge ballet company, and I have to argue that they are equally good at the classical. I’m proven right when they do a classical ballet like “Swan Lake” with such perfection.
