Moves Like Summer

San Francisco Conservatory of Dance launches its fifth annual Summer Dance Series with a studio performance by Stephanie Salts and Monica Gonzalez, both dancers with New Jersey's Lustig Dance Theatre. With 11 dancers from both coasts, Salts and Gonzalez imagine the adventures of female doppelgangers as they roam a peculiar wonderland in Weee-Oooo, We You. Danced to the whimsical songs of Boston composer Andrew Eckel, who will perform live, Weee-Oooo is the first of two programs that allow dancers and musicians to collaborate in the creation of new work — the second features the work of San Francisco-based choreographer Christian Burns and pianist Donald White, who will tell the story of the fall and recovery of a muse in Sonorous Figures later this month. The summer dance series is a bargain for dance aficionados and those merely hungry for the odd Tuesday night out.

July 1-2, 6:30 & 8 p.m., 2014
