The black-tie event begins at 6:30 PM at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University with a special, one hour performance featuring dancers from the world-class company and the Joffrey Academy of Dance and Community Engagement Programs with pieces specially-chosen by Joffrey Ballet Artistic Director Ashley Wheater. Following the performance guests will be whisked away on trolleys to the Chicago Hilton (720 South Michigan) for cocktails, dinner and dancing.
Guests will be treated to a delicious menu created specifically for the Gala by the Chicago Hilton’s Executive Chef. After dinner, the evening will continue with lively after-dinner entertainment from the Bill Pollack Orchestra, as guests join the Joffrey company members on the dance floor. Tom Kehoe of Kehoe Designs will transform the historic Hilton ballroom with spectacular images from the Joffrey archives.
The Joffrey positively impacts the lives of thousands of children, teens and young adults—including more than 5,000 Chicago Public School children—each year through their Community Engagement and Joffrey Academy of Dance programs.
