Here’s your chance to witness local “celebrities” showcasing their dance skills while supporting a great cause! On Saturday, April 28, Youth Services will be holding its Annual Gala & Silent Auction at SIT’s International Center from 5 to 10 p.m. New to the much anticipated event is a twist on televisions’ hit reality show, Dancing with the Stars. Presented by SIT, all-inclusive tickets for Can Windham County Dance? are $85 per person ($55 of which is tax deductible) at www.youthservicesinc.org/gala.
This morning’s article in the Reformer about Marlboro College was odd in a number of ways. First, they say they have a “structural deficit” of 3-4 million dollars a year. But they say that the endowment is sufficient to cover this loss. The endowment is only about $40 million. The 990 for 2015 showed a loss of $4,000,000 in total assets, indicating that this $4 million a year loss has been going on for awhile.
How can the items in our everyday life be used as a gateway to play and our inner child as we unzip our creativity?
Monday morning I woke up having just experienced a lucid dream.
I had just come out of a large building. It was in a city (I have been dreaming of being in big cities lately). I realized that I was dreaming.
I looked at my surroundings. Everything looked so real even though I knew it was a dream. I did not want to lose this dream, which can happen if you get too excited about knowing that you are in a lucid dream. So I started to look at the ground, thinking that by focusing on something mundane I can keep things on an even keel and the dream will continue.
Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of acoustic/electric Americana music from Sleepy Hollow, NY by The Slambovian Circus of Dreams (aka The Grand Slambovians) at Next Stage on Friday, March 23 at 7:30 pm.
The music of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams has been described as “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” “alt-country, roots-rock” and “surreal Americana” – a clear indicator of its singularly indescribable uniqueness. A rootsy psychedelica that Maverick Magazine calls “Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana,” the quartet’s melodic avant-folk conjures with an exotic instrumental arsenal (accordion, cello, mandolin, theremin) in addition to standard rock regalia, and a palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Dancing freely between all existing religious and philosophical mythologies, the music is uplifting, empowering and a lot of fun.
