Mak­ing and tak­ing steps

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

Dancers de­pend on the com­pany of oth­ers, un­like many other artists who work in iso­la­tion. In the class­room, in re­hearsal, or on stage, they are sup­ported by fel­low dancers, teach­ers, and chore­og­ra­phers. The New Mex­ico Dance Coali­tion was founded in 1986 by four dancers with this idea of co­op­er­a­tion in mind. At 7:30 p.m. on Fri­day and Satur­day, March 26 and 27, the coali­tion presents its 23rd An­nual Chore­og­ra­phers Show­case, which gives dance mak­ers at all lev­els an op­por­tu­nity to have their works pro­fes­sion­ally pro­duced. Per­for­mances of mambo, ball­room, mod­ern, in­ter­pre­tive, and belly dance can be seen at The Rai­l­yard Per­for­mance Cen­ter, 1611 Paseo de Per­alta. The tick­ets, $12, $8 for stu­dents, and $5 for chil­dren un­der 12, are avail­able at the door. For in­for­ma­tion, call 920-0554.
