Dancers on their toes for new ballet By Margo Wilson Sun Staff Writer They've rehearsed and rehearsed and rehearsed. And, now, the performers in Images Bullet Theatre are staging their premiere show Saturday with guest dancers, an acting troupe and a cast of 50. The performance, Dance Act '94, includes variations from classical ballets, a dance to a piece of 1970s music by Herbie Hancock and a performance of an Oscar Wilde play. Images Ballet Theatre is a ballet company ofl3 performers comprised of students of Looking Glass Studio of Performing Arts, a San Bernardino studio that offers dance and theater instruction. "We've wanted to do this for a long time," says Ron Cocking, who is artistic director at Looking Glass with his wife, Gloria McMillan. Paul Murphy, a former Looking Glass student and now a professional dancer, is one of the guest artists. Murphy is a Cajon High School graduate and has danced with the Houston Ballet, the Komisehe Opera Ballet Company in Germany and Ballet South in Birmingham, Ala. Ballet South ballerina Ly-dia Tetzlaff also will dance. Murphy and Tetzlaff will dance a pas de deux from the ballet "The Golden Age" and a piece set to music by Rachmaninoff, "Spring Waters." Murphy also will dance the solo male variation from the ballet "Paquita." Sudabeh Keshmirian and Pamela Taylor are the choreographers. McMillan has formed a drama group at Looking Glass and the group will perform the Oscar Wilde trilogy, "Broken Hearts: Three Tales of Sorrow," a work which involves both acting and dancing. The show is at 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the California Theatre of Performing Arts, 562 W. Fourth St. in San Bernardino. Tickets are $6-$8. Call (909) 886-4510.
