BEST BETS

Dance

– Momix at Proctors, Schenectady — Momix is marked by imagination and athleticism. The ensemble will dance its episodic “Passion” as created by chief mastermind Moses Pendleton to haunting music by Peter Gabriel. Jan. 19.

– 4-ISH at Proctors — This group of ultra-cool hip-hoppers is an unknown quality regionally. However, its promise of nonstop video, breakdancing, Rollerblading and pop music sounds irresistible. Feb. 22.

– Savion Glover with McCoy Tyner Trio at The Egg, Albany — This is a jazz lover’s dream. Rhythm tap superstar Glover joins talents with modern piano jazz innovator and four-time Grammy Award-winner Tyner. It should be memorable night. March 7.

– Garth Fagan Dance at The Egg — This modern dance company is as mystical as it is earthy. It’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser with its yeasty blend of superior choreography responding to a catalog of sumptous music. March 28.

– Buglisi Dance Theatre at The Egg — Martha Graham personally passed on her dramatic dance traditions to Jacqulyn Buglisi. She carries on the heritage with style. April 18.
