The dance calendar springs back into action over the next few weeks with Bill T. Jones in Berkeley, the opening of the San Francisco Ballet season, and the official unveiling of ODC/Dance’s new building (and consequently my frequency of appearance in the SF Chronicle is about to spike too).

But lest you think the scene dormant in the meantime, be advised that the sixth annual Women on the Way Festival kicks off tonight at Dance Mission Theatre. Of the eight offerings on the programs (each night mixes and matches for a different combo), I can personally recommend Sean Dorsey’s tender transgender short-story in movement, “Six Hours,” and I’m curious to see the latest works by Alma Esperanza Cunningham Movement and Funsch Dance Experience. The festival rungs through January 29; for the schedule and more info, click here.
