After all the activities of National Dance Week, you’d think we’d be slowing down. But, no, we’re not. Last weekend we saw Zari Le’on’s glitterBlack, Anna Halprin at the Rio, bellydancing at The Crepe Place…and that’s just what I was aware of. (By the by, did I mention that Halprin was mightily impressed with the SC dance community…said when they showed the film in her area, the audience was only a third of the size of the Rio turn out.)
This coming weekend we have Flex, Leslie Johnson’s contemporary dance group at 418; Cabrillo College’s Spring Dance Concert at the Crocker Theater; Raizes do Brasil’s capoeira Batizado (their ranking awards ceremony) at Louden Nelson; Sambada at Moe’s Alley; and the Artist of the Year Profile Performance by Robert Kelley at the Rio.
How’s a girl to decide? What are you going to see?
