It’s hard to blame the companies presented at City Center’s annual Fall for Dance Festival for showing off. The 2014 Festival is drawing its usual sell-out crowd of energized, appreciative audience members, and in the second program of this year’s festival, three of the four offerings were chosen to be crowd pleasers. All were technically excellent, but seemed to be danced more for effect than for meaning.
