DANCE | Rochester Dance Theatre: 'Exhilaration' 

When Flower City Ballet's late founder Wayne Blatt's health was in decline, he shifted leadership of his dance school to his mentee, dancer and choreographer Erika Ruegemer. She's since expanded the school's vision to incorporate contemporary dance, and re-minted it Rochester Dance Theatre. The company and school will this week present "Exhilaration," a dance exhibition of original choreography in two parts. Act 1, "Carnival of the Animals," features dancers from the school performing to a suite French Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Act 2 sees the company performing to French composer René Aubry's "The Shell."

"Exhilaration" will be performed at the JCC's Hart Theater, 1200 Edgewood Avenue, at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 26; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. Tickets are $15, $10 for ages 12 and younger. 325-2114;
