Critic Reviews for Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Always informative yet never remotely original. The story gets told, we learn something, class dismissed.

Talk about a slow dance.

"Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance" is an exhilarating piece of dance history...

May 31, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4

Dance films like Wim Wenders's innovative, kinetic "Pina" have now set a high barre, and by comparison the traditional talking-head style of this documentary seems primed for showings on public television.

April 26, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A deeply archived and circumspect history of the Joffrey dance company, Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance does a perfect white swan but has trouble developing much of a personality.

April 24, 2012 | Full Review…

There's a lot of valuable information here, but for all the archival footage on view, dance is rarely allowed to make its effect.
