Washington -- Just in case you haven't heard, two old friends have gotten together to dance.Twyla Tharp and Mikhail Baryshnikov, along with a select group of nine dancers, have brought their national tour to the newly gilded Warner Theatre in a program of Ms. Tharp's original and eclectic choreography, "Cutting Up."The three main concerns of dancers -- performance, bodies and food -- provided a framework for the program Monday night. Three acts, "Shtick," "Bare Bones" and "Food," were decidedly different, uniquely Tharpian and accessible on several levels, and left the audience on its feet cheering.

Piano trio The Triple Helix Piano Trio, now in its 10th season, has made a strong name for itself as a proponent of traditional and contemporary repertoire. You can hear both styles this weekend when the ensemble performs for the Candlelight Concert Series in Columbia. On the traditional side, the program offers Beethoven's popular Ghost Trio (close enough to Halloween to remain topical) and Schubert's lyrical Trio No. 1 in B-flat. And from the modern realm: Four Movements for Piano Trio by brilliant Chinese-born composer Bright Sheng, whose blend of Eastern and Western idioms invariably proves arresting.

"I never thought I would dance for so long," said Mikhail Baryshnikov.Mr. Baryshnikov, 48, remains one of the most extraordinary dancers of this century. He continues to receive high praise for his dancing, as he has done since he was an 18-year-old living in Russia."Encouragement from Merce [Cunningham] and Martha Graham, even Mark [Morris] and Twyla [Tharp] and Paul Taylor gave me a new life," he said recently.Unlike Rudolf Nureyev, another great 20th-century Russian dancer who danced classical roles deep into middle age with depressing results, Mr. Baryshnikov knew when the days of white tights and leading romantic roles in ballet were over.

PHILADELPHIA -- The White Oak Dance Project, a touring company founded last year by Mikhail Baryshnikov, is unusual on a number of levels.The company has given a ballet pyrotechnist and star, Mr. Baryshnikov, the chance to explore an entirely different dance form. It has given Mark Morris, whose work the troupe performs, a new instrument for the choreography that has made him a leading American modern dance artist. The project makes use of some of the best -- and most seasoned -- dancers in the country.

WILMINGTON, Del. - The sun in its descent splashes light all along the front of the Grand Opera House, a marvel of Victorian design and gleaming white marble. The Opera House, which went up in 1871, was built to last. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said of the human body. Not that any of Mikhail Baryshnikov's parts are in obvious disrepair. Quite the opposite. From the balcony of the Opera House, at least, he seems to still have his trademark mane of abundant butterscotch hair. If he is shorter and more compact than one remembers, Baryshnikov still gives the impression that every muscle has been honed with a precise understanding of its overall function in relation to the rest of his remarkable body.
