To David Gordon, choreography has always been the C-word, something that others--perhaps better equipped and more captivated by mere dancing--do for a living. Not Gordon. Others may grandly say that they create dances, but ever since he began his dance career in the early '60s, Gordon has slyly described what he does as "constructing pieces." That is, until recently. For Gordon's latest construction, "United States," is a real dance, replete with glitzy show tunes and dreamy adagios.

LILIT HOGTANIAN GROOMING FOR THE PROS She may not have her driver's license yet, but 16-year-old ballet dancer Lilit Hogtanian can fouette with the best of them. The 5-foot-2 dynamo from Montebello first danced Clara two years ago in Los Angeles Ballet's inaugural "Nutcracker," and this year she won the Prix de Lausanne Participation Award in Switzerland. Then, having turned down an offer to study at the late choreographer Maurice Bejart's Rudra School in Lausanne, she pirouetted her way to Monaco, where she is now on full scholarship at the Princess Grace Academy.

"But then," thought Alice, "shall I never get any older than I am now? That'll be a comfort, one way--never to be an old woman...." Across the street from a small, formal Victorian park and the imposing Cathedral Church of St. James stands palatial St. Lawrence Hall: the center of the city's cultural life when it was built in 1850 and currently the home of National Ballet of Canada.
