DANCE | 'All That Jazz' 

Rochester City Ballet opens its 2017-18 season with an interesting program that's a little non-traditional for a ballet company. "All That Jazz" will (as the name suggests) feature three works set to jazz pieces. The bill will feature two works by RCB Artistic Director David Palmer: "Bound for Brubeck" interprets music by the great pianist and band leader Dave Brubeck, including his "Take Five"; and a piece set to big band favorites will have its world premiere. RCB will also perform "Bach de Trois," a work choreographed by Nikolai Kabaniaev and set to French pianist Jacques Loussier's jazz renditions of Bach compositions.

Rochester City Ballet will perform "All That Jazz" on Friday, September 29, through Sunday, October 1, at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. $37-$47. 389-2170;
