Nor will it affect the remainder of the 1992-93 Center dance series, according to Center President Thomas R. Kendrick.

Whoever heard of David Gordon? Not many San Diego dance buffs, judging from the sparse audience on hand Friday night for the local debut of Gordon's Pick Up Co. More's the pity, since this doyen of post-modern dance and his sleek New York-based ensemble offered a strikingly free-flowing sneak preview of "United States," a huge patchwork quilt of a piece scheduled to be premiered at Kennedy Center in September. And, unlike most imported dance works, this evening-long mix of movement, words and music, had ties to San Diego.
