Confetti (2023)
Production: Momentum

Gerald Arpino [1923-2008] (Confetti) co-founded the Joffrey Ballet with Robert Joffrey in 1956. A principal dancer in the original company, he later created more than a third of the Joffrey repertory as resident choreographer and served as Artistic Director from 1988 to 2008. To honor the 100th anniversary of his birth, the Gerald Arpino Foundation conducted a multi-year centennial celebration of his life and works, including lectures, masterclasses, and performances of Arpino ballets by dance companies throughout the country, including American Midwest Ballet’s staging of Confetti.
