Dirty Dancing: Cheating on Your Television Set

The hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance is the reason TV-watching America has fallen back in love with dancing. But that love is more like a threesome: between the viewer and the dancer is the television set. Sometimes it’s best to cut out the box, so leave the old ball ’n’ chain at home this weekend and check out Amoré and More from the Boca Ballet Theatre. The summer dance concert features Lew Christensen’s Con Amoré — a one act play set to three Rossini overtures — and August Bournonville’s Flower Festival at Genzano Pas de Deux and Napoli, a story of a young Italian girl who falls for a fisherman. This ballet experience also includes the infamous Romeo & Juliet balcony scene (that’ll put your TV set to shame), and, to spice things up, a new, contemporary work from Boca Ballet Theatre’s Dan Guin.

The production kicks off at 8 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday at the FAU University Theatre (777 Glades Rd., Boca Raton). Tickets cost $35 for adults and $25 for children and seniors. Call 561-995-0709, or visit bocaballet.org.
Sat., Aug. 1, 8 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 2, 2 p.m., 2009
