showtimes and tickets

Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance tells the story of this groundbreaking cultural treasure, known as the first truly American dance company. Narrated by Tony and Emmy Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules (Bill T. Jones-A Good Man), the film documents how The Joffrey Ballet revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, combining art with social statement and setting ballets to pop and rock music scores.

The film weaves a wealth of rare archival footage and photographs along with interviews featuring former and current Joffrey star dancers, showing the full history of the Company from its founding to the present. It describes how the Joffrey repeatedly resurrected itself after devastating financial and artistic setbacks and introduced cutting-edge choreographers such as Twyla Tharp, Laura Dean and Margo Sappington to larger audiences.

Featuring rare excerpts from many seminal Joffrey works including Astarte, Trinity and Billboards, as well as breakthrough collaborations with choreographers Twyla Tharp (Deuce Coupe), Kurt Jooss (The Green Table) and Leonide Massine (Parade).

when I was about 13 years old I took a summer class in prgaoohtphy at an art school...one afternoon we went to the dance class where the ballerinas were practicing and I shot some black and white film that when I developed it reminded me of the degas dancers...I know I must have that film somewhere...I'll have to hunt it down at my parents' house...I'd love to try that again. this is such a gorgeous photo. dancers are so graceful and lithe...there's nothing quite like watching them. they don't look real. something that beautiful and natural-looking although perfectly choreographed could only exist in dreams...sigh...

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Posted: September 28, 2005T-0:00:05.5Engine startThe Rocketdyne RS-68 main engine begins to ignite as the liquid hydrogen fuel valve is opened, creating a large fireball at the base of the rocket. The engine powers up to full throttle for a computer-controlled checkout before liftoff.T-00:00.0LiftoffThe rocket's two strap-on solid rocket motors are lit, the four hold-down bolts are released and the Delta 4 lifts off from Vandenberg SLC-6 pad. The pad's two swing arms retract at T-0 seconds.T+00:58.3Max-QThe vehicle experiences the region of maximum dynamic pressure. Both solid motors and the RS-68 liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine continue to fire as the vehicle heads downrange, arcing over the Pacific along a 154-degree flight azimuth.T+01:35.0Solid motor burnoutHaving used up all their solid-propellant, the two strap-on boosters experience burnout. However, they remain attached to the first stage for the next 20 seconds while the vehicle flies clear of the San Miguel and Santa Rosa islands.T+01:55.0Jettison solid motorsThe two Alliant-built strap-on boosters are jettisoned from the Delta's first stage. The spent casings fall into the ocean.T+03:54.9Begin engine throttlingWith engine cutoff nearing, the RS-68 powerplant starts throttling down from 102 percent. It will achieve a 57 percent throttle in five seconds.T+04:05.9Main engine cutoffThe hydrogen-fueled RS-68 rocket engine completes its firing and shuts down to complete the first stage burn.T+04:11.9Stage separationThe Common Booster Core first stage and the attached interstage are separated in one piece from the Delta 4's upper stage. The upper stage engine's extendible nozzle drops into position as the first stage separates.T+04:26.4Second stage ignitionThe upper stage begins its job to place the classified NRO payload into space with the first of two firings. The stage features a Pratt & Whitney RL10B-2 liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine.T+04:36.5Jettison nose coneThe four-meter diameter composite payload fairing that protected the classified spacecraft atop the Delta 4 during the atmospheric ascent is no longer needed, allowing it to be jettisoned in two halves.T+14:21.7Upper stage shutdownThe RL10 upper stage engine shuts down to complete its first firing of the launch. The rocket and attached spacecraft reach an ellipitcal parking orbit of 104 by 1,196 nautical miles with an inclination of 62.5 degrees.T+40:12.0Restart upper stageThe upper stage will coast to the parking orbit's high point where the RL10 engine reignites to raise the altitude for deployment of the payload.T+43:34.2Upper stage shutdownThe powered phase of the Delta 4's mission to loft classified payload concludes. The targeted orbit is 601 by 20,308 nautical miles with an inclination of 62.4 degrees.T+50:04.5Begin spin-upThe next step in preparing for deployment of the payload is gently spinning up the stage like a top to 5 rpm.T+54:14.5Spacecraft separationThe classified spacecraft for the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office is released from the Delta 4 rocket, completing the first West Coast Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle mission.Data source: BoeingApollo patchesThe Apollo Patch Collection: Includes all 12 Apollo mission patches plus the Apollo Program Patch.
