Dance Theatre of San Francisco, one of the city's newest contemporary dance companies, introduces itself to the public in "Debut", Oct. 11-13 at ODC Theater. Combining the forces of four local choreographers with international résumés, Dance Theater of San Francisco promises a mixed bill of world premieres and a stable of balletic, athletic dancers. Choreographers include former Paris Opera Ballet dancer Sandrine Cassini and Erik Wagner, previously with the San Francisco Ballet, who are already familiar to San Francisco audiences through the works they have created independently and for the LINES Ballet training program. Brazilian born Marcos Vedoveto, resident choreographer of the Connecticut Ballet, and Lesa Dusich, director of Reno Dance Company, round out the program. The company, directed by Napoles Ballet General Manager Annabelle Henry and containing a hearty portion of the same dancers, bills its repertoire as "eclectic" and "ever-changing" — fair words for a city in love with dance.
