German dancer and choreographer, a teacher and ballet director. A ballet master in Munster in 1924, he founded his own company, for which he created numbers. In 1927 he moved into directing at the Essen Folkwang School, and in 1930 began to manage the productions. Pressure from the Nazi government drove him and his company from Germany in 1933. They performed in England and then on to touring the world up to 1947. At that time they were in Chile where they held a performance over for two years before returning to Germany.

Jooss married dancer Aino Siimola in 1929 and later, their daughter Anna Markard-Jooss became the producer of many of her father's ballets.

He died at Heilbronn on 5/22/1979.
