Jamie Nichols hopes that showcasing a variety of modern dance companies framed by innovative lighting and sound pleases all the senses during the fourth annual “Celebrate Dance” at the Alex Theatre on Saturday. “I want people to have an opportunity to see different things,” she said. “I want to educate people. They may love something, maybe not. Everybody is different.” Nichols, the show’s executive producer, was born in Glendale, graduated from Glendale High School, and was artistic director and founder of the Pasadena-based contemporary dance company Fast Feet for 23 years until she retired the company in 2003.
