The Natasha Carlitz Dance Ensemble, turning 10 this year, will celebrate with an anniversary performance entitled "Acadia and other stories." Choreographer Natasha Carlitz grew up in Palo Alto and has many ties to the local dance community. "Acadia and other stories" is collaboration between Carlitz and composer Mike Coffin, with live music by Brilliante Strings. The "Acadia Suite" string quartet pays tribute to Acadia National Park in Maine, while the titular "other stories" include premieres of the orchestral "Present" and the solo "Icarus: Learning To Fly;" a new work by guest choreographer Helena Birecki; and more. Performances will be held Friday, Oct. 28, and Saturday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m. at Cubberley Auditorium, 4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. Tickets are $15-$20. Go to Carlitz Dance Co..
