satur­day. As vi­tal, but sel­dom as ap­pre­ci­ated, as jazz, hip- hop and other uniquely Amer­i­can art forms, Amer­i­can dance is get­ting a nod this week­end with Boul­der Bal­let and the Boul­der Phil­har­monic’s “Dance, Amer­i­can Style.” The 7: 30 p. m. show at CU’s Macky Au­di­to­rium on Jan. 16 in­ter­prets ( via artis­tic di­rec­tor Ana Claire) the com­po­si­tions of Wil­liam Schu­man, Leonard Bern­stein and Aaron Co­p­land in ex­u­ber­ant and ath­letic ways, with live ac­com­pa­ni­ment from the Boul­der Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra. Co­p­land’s 1942 bal­let “Rodeo” will close out the pro­gram. 1595 Pleas­ant St. in Boul­der. $ 13-$ 25. 303- 4491343, ext. 2 or boul­der­bal­let. org.
