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.

The San Diego Foundation for the Performing Arts and Sushi Gallery will receive grants of $15,500 and $12,100, respectively, from the National Endowment for the Arts next year. It's a sizable increase for the Sushi, which received $8,400 for dance this year from the NEA. Sushi founding director Lynn Schuette speculated that the company may have received the award because, "We've been showing nationally prominent artists, and that's what the NEA is interested in funding."
