“I’m not sure why, but it’s like the popularity of tango, waltz or jazz,” said Joel Rubin, a world-class klezmer clarinet player invited to teach young and old musicians at the event. “The spread of Jewish klezmer shows it’s become part of the world’s cultural heritage.”. However, it was pretty much back to basics at the KlezCalifornia classes led by masters like Rubin. In one session, he had a young band of 20-somethings called Orchestra Euphonos, a quartet from Oakland and Santa Rosa, play one of its favorite tunes. Rubin recognized it as an early classic, which he played for them on a laptop loaded with old tunes for any available teaching moments. In a most polite but direct way, he told them many young klezmer musicians ought to look up the originals first.

A week had passed since the art-related text exchange. I share this article with DC, a lawyer by vocation and a director of plays by avocation. “I’m thinking of the parallels between architecture and theater,” I say. “When you cast a play, not everyone can have a lead role. You need a supporting cast.”. He agrees, of course. At which point, I seize the moment — which you must be quick to do if you are married to a lawyer — and add: “Like art in a home, not every piece needs to make a statement. Sometimes you need supporting art.”.
Bay Area Dance Week kicks off at noon Friday on Union Square with One Dance, a performance hosted by Rhythm & Motion Dance at which the public is invited to join in ballet leotards vintage on iconic dance moves from the Charleston and the twist to the funky chicken and the moon walk (to see a tutorial on this year’s dance, or highlights of last year’s One Dance, go to www.mercurynews.com/entertainment.), Running through May 4 with more than 600 free classes, performances, open rehearsals and lecture demonstrations, the celebration is essentially an invitation to explore the Bay Area’s dance possibilities as a curious observer or active participant..
“It’s a world of video games and apps, so having the kids work six to eight weeks is a slow burn,” Hauge said. Running April 22-May 1 is “Billy Elliot,” one of Children’s Musical Theater’s biggest debuts and a first for any local company to show. The dance-heavy musical is demanding on the performers, and the cast is made up mostly of adults and Children’s Musical Theater alumni, a huge exception being the title character played by local ballet dancer Matthew Dean.
