Dance, dance revolution … in Dallas and Fort Worth

If you’re a fan of dance, this weekend could be a boon … or anxiety-producing. Because Friday through Sunday, both Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Texas Ballet Theatre are doing spring performances. At DBDT, the Spring Celebration is the season-closing mix of jazz, ballet and modern, mixing music from Sinatra to Coltrane. And Saturday night’s performance is followed by a party with drinks, bites and live music. Over at Bass Hall, Fort Worth-based TBT opens its production of Alice in Wonderland. The good news it, the show moves to the Winspear next month, so you double your chances of seeing it.

Paula Poundstone brings her quirky humor to the Majestic

With her deadpan observations and a sly comic timing, Paula Poundstone has been one of the most consistently hilarious live comics for decades. Her skills are more suited to theaters than to arenas, so it’s a good fit she is performing Friday at the Majestic where her humor can shine through.

DEETS:
Majestic Theatre,
1925 Elm St. 8 p.m.
