Lucia Connolly performs in Joffrey Ballet’s premiere of Boléro by Yoshihisa Arai. Lucia says: “The piece was so much fun to create. Both because it was our first time ‘performing’ in almost a year and because the movement feels so natural. I am one of the six women that dance around the main woman. Coming next from Joffrey will be a dance film, Under The Trees Voices, choreographed by Nic Blanc. I am not in it but it is going to be so beautiful!”
