WEDNESDAY

Jose Greco II has taken on the family business of skilled, spectacular flamenco dance and acquitted himself admirably. Greco, his sister Carmela Greco, and his company of dancers and musicians continue family and cultural tradition in a performance of smoldering and meteoric movement. Their flamenco creates a vehicle that allows male dancers both power and grace, and female dancers an innovative performance as gauchos, breaking from convention in movement, style, and costume. In a program consisting mainly of Greco’s traditional flamenco choreography, the company brings sensuality and passion to life in motion, stillness, the balletic, the showy, and the athletic. At 7:30 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. $30. (202) 357-3030. (Karen Mitchell)
