Wrapping up its eighteenth season, Diablo Ballet puts dance fans close to the action with a varied and ambitious edition of Inside the Dancer's Studio, its popular dance and discussion salon, on Friday and Saturday, May 4-5, at Shadelands Arts Center Auditorium (111 N. Wiget Lane, Walnut Creek). The audience sits within a few feet of the dancers as they perform George Balanchine's fast and furious Tarantella; a contemporary world premiere by ODC co-artistic director KT Nelson; a premiere by Diablo company member and rising choreographer Robert Dekkers; and Shall We Dance, created by former Ballet West ballerina Erin Leedom to a jazzy Ella Fitzgerald soundtrack. Following each performance, enjoy light snacks and friendly conversation with the artists, moderated by radio personality Elvis Medina, ABC anchor Dan Ashley, and Diablo magazine editor Susan Safipour. Fri. 7:30 p.m.; Sat. 2 p.m., 7:30 p.m; $19-$37. 925-943-1775 or
