This weekend you can see dancers moving to everything from the Beatles through Tim Burton to “Moulin Rouge” in “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” the Tacoma Performing Dance Company’s Spring Concert at Stadium High. The company, part of the venerable Jo Emery Dance School, will premiere new works by artistic director Jo Emery (“Money,” staged to music by the O’Jays and “Almost Alice,” set to the Tim Burton movie score) as well as new work by choreographers Amity Howell-Sloboda (to four Beatles tunes) and Anna Herron (“The Color Green.”)

There’ll also be the can-can from the movie “Moulin Rouge,” and much more.
