2/27-28: Aspen Santa Fe Ballet at Ohio Theatre

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Twyla Tharp’s Sue’s Leg became one of the choreographer’s best-known works after it was included in Dance in America, a 1976 Emmy-winning Great Performances outing. It’s the last installment of Tharp’s works to include music from the 1930s — in this case, Fats Waller songs. Sue’s Leg is part of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s program when it comes to town this weekend. The troupe is a rarity among dance companies these days: It actually seems to be on the rise. Founded in 1996 by Joffrey protégé Bebe Schweppe, the company (run by artistic director Tom Mossbrucker) presents its regular season performances in Santa Fe, but it also tours steadily. They have a two-day stand at PlayhouseSquare hosted by Dance Cleveland. Performances are at 8 tonight and 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Ohio Theatre (1511 Euclid Ave., 216.241.6000). Tickets: $20-$45. — Michael Gill
