Postponed by last winter's wonderful weather, the James Sewell Ballet, one of America's premier companies, returns to Saint Joseph College with its latest repertoire of contemporary ballet and modern dance choreography, inspired by classical works and even National Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion (Garrison Keilor won't be dancing, sadly).

James Sewell Ballet, Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m., $10-$25, Hoffman Auditorium, Saint Joseph College, 1678 Asylum Ave., West Hartford, (860) 231-5555, sjc.edu.
