Menlowe Ballet The Menlo Park-based dance company Menlowe Ballet, which offers audiences a blend of classical, contemporary and cultural dance, is celebrating its fifth anniversary with "Tribute," a program featuring two world premieres, a signature revival and a classical work. Artistic Director Michael Lowe drew on his experience dancing with Oakland Ballet in two renowned productions of Ravel's "Bolero" to create "Tribute" (first staged by Menlowe Ballet in 2013). World premieres include "After Hours," set in a vibrant Shanghai nightclub on New Year's Eve, and "Portraits," celebrating accomplished women throughout history. Dennis Nahat also returns to present his version of the classical "Le Corsaire Pas de Deux." Performances will be held Nov. 3 (at 7:30 p.m.), 5 (at 2 and 8 p.m.) and 6 (at 2 p.m.) at Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton. Tickets are $30-$60.
