The unfamiliar consider dance a scary thing anyway, so why not shake up expectations with a dance performance both original and modern, all the while ghoulishly delightful? Thats what Contemporary Ballet Dallas had in mind when it created Danse Macabre, a collection of themed performances from company dancers and guest performers, all in the holiday spirit. From a murder mystery to a piece set to Bachs Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, CBD will spook and spellbind even the skeptics. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson. Tickets are $15 to $35. Call 972-744-4650 or visit eisemanncenter.com.
