Called "the most forward-looking American ballet company on the continent" (Contra Costa Times), San Francisco Ballet rarely disappoints in its selection and performance of innovative, genre-defining works. For this exciting triple bill, SF Ballet presents the world premiere of Hummingbird by Liam Scarlett, a contemporary ballet wunderkind who, at only 26, was recently appointed artist-in-residence at The Royal Ballet. The program also includes the return of Helgi Tomasson's masterful The Fifth Season and Serge Lifar's elegant Suite en Blanc, a brilliant showcase of French neoclassicism featuring "a parade of stunning individual and Hollywood-big corps performances" (San Jose Mercury News).

This was SWISH substituting for lack luster choreography. It repeatedly undercut itself by pandering. If this dance troupe hopes to do more than suck up free floating gay dollars and gain respect it would do well to pay more attention to the art form than taking advantage of presumed audience artlessness.

Noted male dance troupe Man Dance Company presents its summer show, It Takes Two To Tango, which combines the energy of competitive ballroom dance with the lyricism of ballet. The Man Dance Company will be joined by by International Latin Dance champion Roby Tristan, ballroom stars Chelsea Wielstein and Eric Koptke, and many other special guest dancers. The show is comprised of several short dance pieces, culminating in the title piece, a love story that crosses gender and racial barriers.
