Robert Joffrey was one of the few artistic directors that worked to inspire his students to believe that despite their flaws - whether they were too round, too short, too tall, etc. - they could dance. This philosophy stemmed from Joffrey’s own experiences of being ridiculed by former dance teachers because of his own physical deformity.
