A Mark Morris Dance Group performance means many things, among them, says the Washington Post, “beautiful movement, beautiful music, presented in unbroken harmony that feels as natural as breathing.” Mark Morris and his talented ensemble continue the tradition of excellence begun more than 25 years ago with two appearances at George Mason’s Center for the Arts on Feb. 10 and 11 at 8 p.m.

The program for both evenings includes 1995’s “Somebody’s Coming to See Me Tonight,” danced to Stephen Foster melodies; “Rhymes With Silver,” set to a commissioned score by Lou Harrison; and “From Old Seville,” a flamenco tour de force, featuring Mark Morris in an over-the-top mating dance sure to elicit grins from both fans and neophytes.

A pre-performance discussion on the Grand Tier of the Concert Hall will be held at 7:15 p.m. on both evenings.

Tickets are $44, $36 and $22. Charge by phone at 888-945-2468, or visit
