Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this final day of February.

New York-based company Jessica Lang Dance brings and evening of contemporary dance to the Wharton Center Tuesday. The group has been praised by publications like Dance Europe Magazine, which said, “What makes Lang’s work groundbreaking is that she hasn’t just discovered some clever effects — she meticulously choreographs these on-screen interactions so expertly that we feel we are no longer watching film, or dance or dance on film: It’s like a completely new medium.” 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $20.50/$18 students. Wharton Center, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing. (517) 432-2000, whartoncenter.com.
