Spring Dances

Eclectic is the keyword for this batch of dances, from sophisticated and edgy to classically grounded contemporary by State Street Ballet & Santa Barbara Dance Theatre, and high-energy urban stylings by some very precocious dynamos from Momentum Dance Company. There is even a dance/theater piece based on Anne Frank’s moving diary. In order of appearance: State Street Ballet – “Moult” by Brook Hughes Melton and “(con)version” by Kassandra Taylor Newberry; Momentum Dance Co,; Santa Barbara Dance Theatre – “Salt” by Joshua Beamish, “Strange Attractor” by Christopher Pilafian and “A Jointed Affair” by Emily Schoen; SSB – “The Desperate Ones” by Andrea Schermoly; SBDT – “Concerto” by Joshua Beamish; SSB – “Vista” by Sophie Monat and “Anne’s Window” by Cecily Stewart.
