Atlantans' love of the dance was made evident through Soulja Boy's smash hit "Crank That (Soulja Boy)," so there's no reason why Atlantans should not enjoy TRANSFORMOTION, a multidiscipline dance spectacle incorporating more than 100 dancers at the Alliance Theatre. The Dance 101-sponsored event includes a collage of 17 dance pieces ranging from hip-hop to belly dance, contemporary to jazz and tap. World-renowned choreographer Charles "Bubba" Carr provides the artistic vision for the show. Continues through June 14. $35-$40. Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat., 2 and 8 p.m. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-542-3887. www.dance101.org. (Matthew Claiborne)
