Velocity Dance Center crowned local choreographer Kim Lusk as their "Made In Seattle" program fellow this year, which means they're giving her a bunch of support and producing her first full-length performance, A Dance for Dark Horses. Based on a short preview I saw, it seems like they made a good choice. Lusk's piece is a humorous, light-hearted meditation on a group of extroverted introverts (or would it be introverted extroverts?) trying to distinguish themselves from one another, but also trying to be good team players. Her funny, open-hearted, kinda dead-pan style will make you smile, which is rare in a genre that's lousy with self-seriousness.
