COLUMBUS CARES
This is an upcoming performance and a chance to get involved. Either way, you should know about this!
The Ohio State University Department of Dance is collaborating with Dancers Responding to Aids to present an evening of dance featuring OSU student organizations, Columbus dance studios and professional dance companies to benefit Dancers Responding to Aids (DRA), which has donated $176,000 to Columbus AIDS organizations over the past decade. The event is planned for Saturday, May 10, in the Riffe Center’s Capitol Theatre in downtown Columbus, according to student organizer Meagan Grund.
Participants in the event -- Columbus Cares: A Benefit Dance Performance -- currently include, Kristina Isabelle (High Jinks Dance Company), Jenai Cutcher (tap), Cole and Sapir from Columbus Dance Centre, OSU Department of Dance, Dance Linx, the Ohio State Dance Team, Columbus Dance Arts, Dublin Dance Center, Svetlana Iskhakov and Aleko Khutsidze (cha cha and rumba), the Backspace, Columbus Youth Ballet, Columbus City Ballet and the Judy Dollenmayer Studio-Dance.
The goal of the event is to enable dancers to support their communities while sharing their art. Anyone interested in sponsoring or participating in the May 10 event should contact Meagan Grund at MEGrund@gmail.com. The event’s website is www.ColumbusCares.org.

hello, more madcap(?) inventive ideas and brilliant too, with a wisdom of children, lewis carroll, dr seuss, the likes. i think the idea is really relevant since it clearly is also about greater awareness of our bodies. also there seems to be something more natural about wave-like design (like gaudi) since even though straight lines exist in nature, the spirals and arcs are more prevalent. and i guess mankind figured out long ago that nature can be cruel and hence not something we would embrace fully and foolishly, so i think of this as kind of a balance between the organically useful things in nature, and the intelligence of manmade creation.
