Smuin Ballet presents a noteworthy 'Bouquet'
For that we had to wait for the center sections of Jazzin', which offered more theatrically nuanced choreography. Newcomer Erica Felsch's "Spring in My Step" channeled a Marilyn Monroe-esque mix of innocence and sexual allure with wit and charm. The punchy "Takin' No Mess," in which a woman is trying to sell a chair and something else, sounded a different note of humor. Jane Rehm — perhaps the Smuin company's finest stylist — revealed a comedic side of her talent by hitting every move, every glance with just the right timing. In the dark "Solitude" — again set to Ellington — Joshua Reynolds gave a man's tortured soul all the pain and dignity it served. It was a beautiful performance.
