If you're going to any event at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts, consider having dinner and/or after dinner drinks at Paolo's. It's been there forever, and there's a reason for that! You can park in the structure, (enter on Woz Way), enjoy dinner, then just walk over the Guadalupe River bridge and you're at the Center! A whole evening of entertainment in one spot. :-)Cirque Dreams: Holidaze dining • Nov 29 2014 star this tip starred

Dennis Nahat’s SOME TIMES is a romantic jazz ballet set to a commissioned score by famed German composer Claus Ogerman. Choreographed by Dennis Nahat, it will remind you of summer romances.
Flemming Flindt’s THE LESSON tells of a ballet master so driven by his work that his pupil is murdered in the process. Inspired by Eugene Ionesco’s dramatic play, this balletic masterpiece is sought after by major ballet companies throughout the world.
Dennis Nahat’s MOMENTS is a striking and endearing large company work in four movements set to the dazzling Piano Trio No.1 in D Minor, Op. 49 by Felix Mendelssohn. It showcases the individual talents of the Company members. Each of the four movements is given a name evocative of the moods of the music: “Winged Hearts”, “Suspended in Time”, A Fleeting Moment", and “Spontaneity.” MOMENTS was first performed by Cleveland San Jose Ballet, October 28, 1998 at the State Theatre, Cleveland, Ohio. It received its San Jose debut on October 12, 2000 in the first program performed by the newly-formed Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley.
A classical GRAND PAS DE DEUX with fouette urns and grand pirouettes from La Esmeralda will have you jumping out of your seat. The pas de deux, with choreography after Agrippian Vaganova and music by Riccardo Drigo, is excerpted and performed based on the Greek myth about the hunter Acteon, who spies on the goddess Diana while she is bathing.
