It’s good to be XXCentric
XXCentric is the name of the performance we saw last night of the Smuin Ballet.
Three acts–the first very modern and non-narrative, the second much warmer Latin music, the third act is all Gershwin. The intermissions seemed to drag on too long, but the ballets were wonderful.
A favorite dancer of mine, Shannon Hurlburt, came out of retirement to dance in the Gershwin numbers, and the crowd went wild when he came onstage.
I write about these guys all the time, because I enjoy them so much. Smuin Ballet is at the Lesher Center tonight and Sunday, find the time and get there.
