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 its 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 Christensens Con Amoré a one act play set to three Rossini overtures and August Bournonvilles 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 (thatll put your TV set to shame), and, to spice things up, a new, contemporary work from Boca Ballet Theatres 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.
