Here?s a show I can?t make it to this weekend but wish I could. A group of forty-, fifty-, and sixty-something dancers have banded together to create the West Coast version of Nederlands Dans Theater III, trumpeting the benefits of wisdom under the banner ?Still Dancing.? They include John LeFan, 57, founder of the seminal company Mangrove, and Theresa Dickinson, 62, a member of Twyla Tharp?s original company and founder of the Tumbleweed Collective. They?re calling their performances this Friday and Saturday at ODC Theater the debut of a company. Only time will tell if this is a one-off or the founding of something exciting like the now-disbanded New Shoes, Old Souls. In the meantime, I?d love to hear reports from those of you who are able to catch the show.
