The gay-led Trey McIntyre Project has become known for its efforts to broaden the appeal of dance, including by setting up its home base in Boise, Idaho. "I think of [the Project] as an all-American dance company," McIntyre tells Metro Weekly. "It made a lot of sense for us to be a pioneer, to move into a community that really had not developed its dance community to the extent of, say, San Francisco or New York." The company returns to Washington to perform two jazz-based pieces it developed for the New Orleans Ballet Association -- Ma Maison and The Sweeter End -- as well as a third piece, In Dreams, a ballet set to the rockabilly music of Roy Orbison. Friday, May 13, at 8 p.m., and Saturday, May 14, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F St. NW. Tickets are $22 to $75. Call 202-785-9727 or visit wpas.org.
