Deborah Brockus' Spectrum series is where Southland dancers and choreographers hone their craft, strut their stuff or try something risky that might not otherwise fit into their creative profiles. As usual, Spectrum #21 at the Ivar Theatre on Sunday proved uneven but offered more exciting discoveries than outright disasters, with 17 short pieces on the bill, 10 of them premieres.

It's a toss-up as to who works harder: dancer-choreographer-producer Deborah Brockus or the dozens of dancers who perform in her award-winning "Spectrum Dance in L.A." series. In any case, it's the dance community that benefits, as evidenced Saturday night at the Ivar Theatre when Spectrum #15 played to a packed house. And while not all 17 choreographers triumphed, hits happily outweighed misses.
