Curran's nine-dancer company came to the Irvine Barclay Theatre on Friday with three recent, plotless group works steeped in nostalgia.

Sean Curran might be called a hybrid for dance's new century: He's been at the top of the serious dance game for nearly 20 years, having been a member of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company for a decade, and yet he also knows the ropes of commercial dance, hoofing for the off-Broadway mega-hit "Stomp" for four years. Adding spice to this mix, Curran, whose parents immigrated to Boston in the 1950s from Ireland, was a step-dancing whiz as a child.

Maybe you're just crazy about Irish step dancing, but you have a low threshold for the bravado posturing and many electronic effects of "Riverdance." Then you would definitely take to Trinity Irish Dance Company, which made a timely St. Patrick's Day appearance at UCLA's Royce Hall. This Chicago-based, Irish American troupe of 20 dancers and three musicians was founded in 1990 by artistic director Mark Howard--a man who must surely wince when he hears anyone refer to his genre as "riverdancing."

An unusually rich sampling of world dance and some highly unusual reinterpretations of classic scores make the fall full of adventure. All by itself, the World Festival of Sacred Music offers rarities galore in its 55 September events--especially, perhaps, the dervish rituals from Syria, sacred masked dances from Bali and animal dances from a remote corner of the Pacific called Lifou Island.
