"Hot Guys Dancing" runs through this weekend at Diversionary Theatre

SAN DIEGO -- Three of the Southern California's most dynamic and daring choreographers will be showcased in "Hot Guys Dancing," Diversionary Cabaret’s visually stunning and viscerally potent dance series running through Sunday.

Yes, there are guys, and yes, they are HOT and yes, they will be dancing up a storm.

Conceived and directed by Michael Mizerany ("Miss Kitty’s Wild West Revue"), "Hot Guys Dancing" will feature work by Michael, Blythe Barton and Khamla Somphanh.

The second installment of the hit dance series will include a re-staging of the Lester Horton Award winning dance solo "Bump in the Road," Mizerany's brazenly audacious and comic dance work about male self-indulgence and gratification. Originally choreographed and performed by Mizerany in 1996, this time around it will be performed by Nicholas Strasburg who steps into the role of the gyrating exhibitionist.

“The piece is a physically challenging one and Strasburg's performance was powerfully danced and also convincingly acted in those moments that required his voyeuristic connections to the audience. For me, it was the stand out piece on the evening’s program," wrote Steven Woodruff of DancePlug.

Mizerany will also premiere "Rush," featuring Craig Noel Award-winner Dylan Hoffinger. "Rush" is a high velocity work that is bold, daring and edgy.

Barton will premiere a new work that examines the complexity of relationships. Barton's choreography exposes the tension in these relationships, illustrating how power shifts of desire, lust, and jealousy develop among these men.

Lastly, audience favorite Somphanh will debut a dance work that delves into the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and sounds, however, each dancer lacks one of those vital senses. How will these men communicate, both emotionally and physically?

Dancers in "Hot Guys Dancing" include Angel Acuña, Jonathan Arreola, Dylan Hoffinger, Bradley R. Lundberg, JT Magee, Shannon Snyder, Nicholas Strasburg, Justin Viernes and David Wornovitzky.

Hot Guys Dancing contains mature themes and male nudity.
