Nearly everything is top secret about the UCLA engagement of the White Oak Dance Project except the presence of Mikhail Baryshnikov and five women: Raquel Aedo, Emily Coates, Emmanuele Phuon, Ruthlyn Salomons and Susan Shields. The exact programming is very hush-hush, and may change nightly, but at Escondido earlier this month, it included Trisha Brown's "Glacial Decoy," Lucy Guerin's "Soft Center," Amy O'Brien's "Vessel," Tamasaburo Bando's "Dance With Three Drums and Flute" and Mark Morris' "The Argument." However, we make no promises since our spies report that Neil Greenberg's "MacGuffin" and Guerin's "Two Lies" are also part of this 10th anniversary tour. Don't say who told you.
* White Oak Dance Project, Royce Hall, UCLA campus, Westwood. Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m. $35 to $75. (310) 825-2101.
