Perhaps local dance fans trekking to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to see the Erick Hawkins Dance Company on Wednesday should forget every step they've ever seen executed there. Forget American Ballet Theatre. Forget New York City Ballet. Forget the Paris Opera Ballet, the Australian Ballet Company, the Joffrey and the Martha Graham Dance Company. Hawkins, one of the great pioneers of American dance, began his training with classical ballet.

In the worlds of art or commerce, philanthropy or industry, networking can make things happen. In the neighborhood of new music, networking too often lays eggs. For example: Closing out his 19th season as artistic director of Monday Evening Concerts, Dorrance Stalvey arranged a predictable and unfascinating program of pieces by himself, Joel Thome, Karel Husa and Brian Ferneyhough.

Erick Hawkins--the grand old man of American dance, who burst into stardom with Martha Graham in the 1930s only to break away 20 years later to choreograph a style of his own that helped shape modern ballet--has died in New York City at 85. Associates said that Hawkins, who suffered a crippling stroke in 1988 that forced him into a wheelchair but sapped none of his vigor and enthusiasm for the art he pursued for 60 years, succumbed to prostate cancer on Wednesday after a long illness.

Call her Lady M. Paint him Candide. Throw in a golden-tressed Hamlet and you've got the hippest new trio in Los Angeles.

Plus the classics.
