Verb Ballets presents a private livestream performance of neoclassical ballets. These works will feature the bold, clean aesthetic lines of ballet with a modern take on the classical form. Returning to the stage is Grace, a moving contemporary ballet by Howard University professor and choreographer, Royce Zackery. In it, the couples dancing tell the story of the strength, perseverance, and elegance of the human condition. The company will also remount Heinz Poll’s Adagio for Two Dancers. This breathtaking duet highlights luxurious partnering with lifts that make for ravishingly sculpted closeness. Also, on the program will be a new work choreographed by Associate Artistic Director, Richard Dickinson, MFA.

Due to closures of theatres and prohibited gatherings of large crowds caused by COVID-19, Verb Ballets continues to look for ways to innovate and bring new dance experiences to the community. This season will be unlike any other in the history of the company. Verb Ballets is committed to presenting work while ensuring a safe environment for its dancers and patrons while following all health recommendations by the state. For the 2020-21 season, Verb Ballets launched a new series, ACCESS/Verb, of private live stream performances.

Suggested ticket price is $25. Any amount over $10 is tax deductible. For example, for a $25 ticket, $15 is tax deductible.
