It sounded like a simple concept: a show based on swing music and dance. Lynne Taylor-Corbett had already choreographed the classic "Great Galloping Gottschalk" for American Ballet Theatre, the musicals "Chess," "Titanic" and "Randy Newman's Faust," and the films "Footloose" and "My Blue Heaven." Why not tackle swing? Three workshops and six Tony nominations later, "Swing!" opens at the Ahmanson Theatre on Wednesday.

Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal is an excellent example of the whole not living up to the sum of its parts. The company has skilled dancers, name choreographers and professional production values. Yet for all that, its performances are curiously lifeless and often cloying, as an evening of works presented Friday and Saturday at the Norris Theatre in Palos Verdes made clear.

Choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett is best known for her pop dances in the film "Footloose" and her pop ballet suite "Great Galloping Gottschalk" for American Ballet Theatre. But she has also tackled serious subjects: love and death in her Ballet Theatre "Estuary," for instance. Now, with "Case Closed," she has attempted a feverish 40-minute dance-drama about the kidnaping of a baby girl and the subsequent degradation of everyone involved--especially the victims.

Tiny, powerful and technically precise, a young woman named Hua Fang Zhang was the best thing about Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal as seen Saturday evening at Orange Coast College's Robert B. Moore Theatre. Wearing a blue Afro-style wig, she opened the program suspended on the arms of two sturdy gentlemen (Eytan Sivak and Aaron Shields) in red and yellow wigs.

BalletMet, which performed Sunday afternoon at McKinney Theatre on the Saddleback College campus, is the kind of regional dance company that wins people over to ballet. The 22 dancers are lithe, fleet and personable, and they seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves. The repertory is essentially contemporary, stressing humor, lyricism and an athletic ease.

FULLERTON 8pm Theater The Battle of the Bulge was raging when "On the Town" premiered on Broadway in December 1944, but the musical's lighthearted, exuberant depiction of the revels and romances of three sailors on a 24-hour leave in New York City looked toward happier days to come. The show, which evolved from a ballet called "Fancy Free," marked the Broadway debuts of four leading talents: composer Leonard Bernstein, choreographer Jerome Robbins, and lyricists Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
