Joffrey II, the "farm team" of The Joffrey Ballet, is comprised of sixteen dancers, ranging in age from seventeen to twenty-one. Founded in 1969, Joffrey II has trained more than 150 young professionals, preparing them to be soloists in The Joffrey Ballet and other professional dance companies of the world. Significant opportunities are also provided for unknown talented choreographers, designers, and composers. As a result of the philosophy that performance is essential to training, Joffrey II tours year-round throughout the country, performing a diverse repertory in varied settings. During its 1980-81 season, the ensemble visited fifty-one cities in twenty-six states, in addition to its season as the resident company of Brooklyn College. While Joffrey II appears in Ann Arbor this week for the first time, its parent company, The Joffrey Ballet, performed here in 1966.
