To follow up on our earlier post about the death of Joffrey Ballet cofounder Gerald Arpino: the memorial service has been moved from Joffrey headquarters. In order to accommodate anticipated crowds, it will now be held Mon 11/17, 10 AM, at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, 50 E. Congress.  

Also, don’t send flowers. The family asks that you make a contribution instead, to:
The Gerald Arpino Scholarship Fund
Academy of Dance, official school of The Joffrey Ballet
Joffrey Tower
10 East Randolph Street
Chicago, IL 60601
