Sidewalks are social spaces native to the urban landscape. Cafes spill out upon them; busking musicians claim their corners. They're also shared turf, used for an infinite number of purposes; walking, running or biking are among the more mundane. One might dance upon them, if so inclined. Contemporary Ballet Dallas chose this rich social space to share Sidewalk Stories, a chronicle of urban life through dance. The performance, a series of vignettes featuring original choreography, are accented by a variety of music including Nina Simone and The Cure. Sidewalk Stories closes the Contemporary Ballet Dallas' season starting at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson in Oak Cliff. Tickets are $12 to $25. Purchase tickets by calling 214-821-2066 or online at contemporaryballetdallas.com.
