Jubilee of Dance

In economic times like these, the word “jubilee” is an encouraging one. Your office may call off the holiday party and Dubai may buy your neighborhood pub, but cheer up — today the Houston Ballet presents its annual Jubilee of Dance, which showcases the range and myriad talents of its dancers. The evening will feature an old favorite, Divergence, one of artistic director Stanton Welch’s best-known, highest-energy pieces, as well as the more recent Punctilious, a very technical work set to Dvorák that Welch created in 2007 for the company’s youngest stars. Throw in George Balanchine’s classic Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux, and other works set to the likes of Vivaldi, Mozart and Philip Glass, and you’ve got reason to be jolly indeed. 7:30 p.m. Wortham Center, 501 Texas. For information, call 713-227-2787 or visit www.houstonballet.org. $33 to $150.
Fri., Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m., 2008
