It’s been over 60 years since the last time The Joffrey commissioned a new full-length ballet. So there’s been a bunch of buzz surrounding the company’s world premiere of Yuri Possokhov’s Don Quixote, which opens tomorrow night at Roosevelt University. To drum up even more excitement, the Joffrey Academy of Dance is presenting a Don Q–themed master class next week. Dancer Ericka Mac will give a brief history of the ballet’s story and choreography, then launch into a full barre warm up set to Don Q music and teach students Kitri’s sassy variation. All levels of dancers are invited to get their Kitri on.
