For eight years now, Erinn Liebhard has been enlivening the dog days of summer with a production of original jazz- and rhythm-driven choreography. The pieces come from established dance makers, including Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner and the dynamic Karla Gotting (who also dances with the Flying Foot Forum, another percussive dance troupe). Laura Selle Virtucio, a long-beloved company member of Zenon Dance Company, also has been dipping her toes into choreography, and has work on the lineup. Newbies to the program include Rush Benson, Rachel Charles, and Pat Taylor, who hails from Los Angeles. Live music infuses the work with the rhythmic underpinnings it so deserves.
