An 11-year-old Serbian child describes the brutalities of war in diary entries that condition the increasingly agonized choreography of "Dear Mimmy," the longest and most ambitious dance drama on an unrelievedly intense program by the Regina Klenjoski Dance Company at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica on Thursday.

It didn't take long to realize that locally based choreographer Regina Klenjoski set her sights on sweepy, swirly, swoopy overkill at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Friday -- to the near-complete exclusion of any forthright, purposeful, deeply felt modern dance. Whatever ideas or feelings had inspired her three works had long since been buried under an avalanche of diversionary steps.

Nobody ever said getting back into shape after having a baby would be a pirouette in the park. Even for the most physically fit. But for dancer-choreographer Regina Klenjoski, the task was doubly daunting. Not only were the birthing adventure and its aftereffects exhausting for her -- but they were also an injunction to go deeper as an artist.

While the rain may have kept many Angelenos away from the second annual Sola Contemporary Dance Festival held over the weekend at James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, spirits were far from dampened. As Regina Klenjoski, artistic director of Regina Klenjoski Dance Company and producer of the event, noted, the purpose of presenting 10 emerging contemporary choreographers was to break boundaries and shape the future of dance in Los Angeles.

Rage, loss, joy and the power of movement are some of the themes Regina Klenjoski Dance Company explored in its six-part program Thursday at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance. Klenjoski, of Macedonian descent, is a dynamic, graceful and indefatigable presence who appears to have it all. Choreographically, however, her all can go on too long after her ideas are initially presented.

Stylish is the word that comes to mind when it comes to choreographer Regina Klenjoski's production of "Original Sin," which was actually a seven-part essay on the famous Seven Deadly Sins. On Friday night at the James R. Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, excellent dancing and design elements strongly supported a piece that otherwise depended largely on familiar movement themes and one-note concepts for its evocation of sin.
