Evoking the courtly nature of classical ballet’s 17th Century origins, Durante Verzola’s “Ballet De Cour” takes inspiration from the music of Frédéric Chopin (based on a theme by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) and steeps itself in neoclassical technique. Verzola uses Chopin’s lively score to explore the dancer’s innate desire to move and express it.

Winning Works 2021 is presented virtually as part of the Joffrey Studio Series. Performances highlight original works created by the winners of the Joffrey Academy’s Winning Works choreographic competition and feature students of the Joffrey Academy of Dance, Official School of The Joffrey Ballet.
