"The Nutcracker" is not the only dance in town during December. In the coming days, six Austin dance groups promise cultural insights unrelated to the holiday season.

Today at 6:30 p.m., Sally Jacques dignifies World AIDS Day with "Body Count," her annual meditative performance, this year staged at Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park. An honor roll of local artists -- among them Anuradha Naimpally, Tina Marsh, Bryan Green, Laura Cannon and Jason Amato -- contribute their skills. Call 444-1672.

Also this evening at 8, Realm Dance Project inaugurates "Using the F-Work: A Commentary on Feminism" at Flatbed Press, 2832 E. Martin Luther King Blvd. This movement-oriented look at feminism and femininity runs through Dec. 9. Call 476-8157.

Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance recalls the many dance styles of the island through "Parrandiando 2000" at the Peter Center, Concordia University, 3400 N. Interstsate 35. New costumes give greater scope to this fine folk dance group. Call 251-8122.

Sunday at 8p.m., Kinesis Dance Theatre Systems collaborates with the Kevin McCorrmick Ensemble for "Out of the Grid" at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road. Longtime Austin dance leader Toni Bravo returns to the spotlight to explore grace and oneness with the universe. Call 345-0370.

Johnson/Long Dance Company revives "Atlas of the Universe" at Hyde Park Theatre, Dec. 7-17. This mix of monologues and intimate dances ruminates on mortality, technology, human nature and outer space. Call 467-0740.

And Dec. 8-10, Ballet East Dance Theatre digs into its collective roots with "Made in Texas," also at the Doughtery Arts Center. Dance-makers Melissa Villarreal, Toni Bravo, Andrea Beckham and Rodolfo Mendez tend to their visions of Texana. Call 454-TIXS.

You may contact Michael Barnes at or 445-3647.
