Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has been the topic of some high-level speculation in the dance world, since it breaks almost every convention that a ballet company usually embodies. Its dancers have a repertory drawn from the latest hybridized European sources; then there's a peripatetic touring schedule (even a film appearance in 2011's The Adjustment Bureau), all bankrolled by a singular donor, WalMart heiress Nancy Laurie. Cedar Lake gets close attention before the curtain goes up—and when it does, it's on a program like the one they're brining here, with three new works by choreographers Alexander Ekman, Hofesh Shechter, and Seattle favorite Crystal Pite. Cedar Lake may sound like a calm vacation spot, but it's one of the hottest dance tickets going. SANDRA KURTZ
