Give art a twirl

SUN 3/6

The members of the Momentum Dance Company are well-respected as artistes, but many of their performances are for an audience whose idea of fine art is finger painting. Today at 2:00, youngsters can make "dancing pictures" with the performers they admire. In Dance a Picture, Momentum members will lead little ones through the Bass Museum of Art (2121 Park Ave., Miami Beach). Drawing inspiration from color and shape, dancers will guide children to transform art into movement. Admission is free with museum entrance. Call 305-673-7530, or visit -- Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik

Nuts About Broadway

Ballet shows its jazz hands

THUR 3/3

When Fernando Bujones was a young man, what do you think he got razzed for more often: a name that nearly rhymes with a colorful Spanish word or wanting to be a ballerina? Whatever the source of any possible childhood traumas, you have to admit it takes balls to be a male ballet dancer these days ... and incredible legs! Perhaps it takes even more cojones to successfully pull off Broadway to Ballet, a variety dance program that playfully incorporates different genres and includes music from artists such as Sinatra and Santana. Or maybe it just takes a lot of choreographic talent and vision. A local boy and former member of the American Ballet Theater, Bujones designed this tribute to dance, which the Orlando Ballet will perform tonight, for one night only, at the Jackie Gleason Theater (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Tickets cost from $25 to $65. The curtain rises at 8:00 p.m. Call 305-673-7300, or visit --Margaret Griffis

This Clown Is Wack

SAT 3/5

Any rapper worth a dime bag knows that to succeed at his craft he must master the art of freestyle. The same can be said about any good improv troupe, and after six years of making people laugh, the Just the Funny crew has it down to a science. Why should you check out this special "best of" show? Where else can you hobnob with the crack-rock-addicted Crack-O the Clown? In his best Tony Montana voice, actor/producer David Christopher says the real reason to enjoy the interactive shows is this: "Ju gotta come to da cho becuz if ju don't, jour womb will be palutted, man." Get cracked at Just the Funny's sixth anniversary shows tonight at 9:00 and 11:00 (the unrated version!) at the Museum of Science and Planetarium, 3280 S. Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost six dollars. Call 305-693-8669, or visit -- Kris Conesa
