Lo-Cal Composers, the local music-writers collective now marking its 10th anniversary, has changed membership and shifted priorities constantly but gradually over an eventful first decade. But the seriousness, wit and exuberance that many admired at its debut concert in September, 1984, still remain.

Before virtually every record company featured it on a "Greatest Baroque Hits" album and before the TV ad agencies for airlines and appliances got hold of it, the tender little tune known as Pachelbel's Canon in D languished in near obscurity. Not for Antony Tudor, though. Back in 1971 the British-born choreographer set a dance, "Continuo," to the now-beloved score that singularly earned the early Baroque composer a name in the 20th Century.

It could be a bowling alley or skating rink in 1957, with the bossa nova melodies, the harmonies of the Fleetwoods and the organ stylings of Walter Wanderly. Instead, it's the rehearsal room at Stanley Holden's dance academy in West Los Angeles as the Los Angeles Chamber Ballet once again goes back to the future for inspiration. The work being rehearsed is "So Nice," billed as bossa nova meets Betty Crocker, Brylcreem and bowling balls.

The newest work by Los Angeles Chamber Ballet takes its cue from ancient ethnic dance forms in which even a finger movement can carry great significance. However, the emphasis on subtle gesture in the new dance is imposed less by choreographic tradition than by nature: "Wheels 2" is performed in part by disabled performers in wheelchairs. Saturday at El Camino College, six disabled performers and six able-bodied dancers will present the 33-minute ballet in an 8 p.m. mixed-bill program.

Raiford Rogers and Victoria Koenig have dream jobs. They spend their days working with people they like and listening to their favorite music--in Rogers' case, these days, the "dream ballads" of Roy Orbison. The two artists are succeeding at something generally thought impossible: building a ballet company in Los Angeles.
