Site-specific choreography/performance opportunity in gorgeous Franklin Park.
Green Columbus is calling for dancers (students or faculty) to be part of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this April. Practically anything goes that can be related to the environment (e.g. classical dance to Vivaldi's "The Goldfinch" or something more modern like Ashesh Barsha, Unending Monsoon). You set the time commitment. There is no budget but we can help with a location and publicity on a local, regional and national level.

Small Business Beanstalk
SBB is a local-first organization dedicated to the growth & development of small, independent businesses in the Central Ohio area. We have recently developed a Community Card program that motivates people to shop locally by offering them deals or discounts at participating member businesses throughout Central Ohio. 

We are actively seeking interns to assist in our efforts, primarily to help distribute the SBB Community Cards - whether through direct promotional efforts or through event set-up and larger scale organizational partnerships. This is an unpaid internship.
 Overall we are looking for students who have an interest in the program and in supporting their community. The internships are as short or as long as the students want them to be (or need them to be in order to gain school credit).

Contact Charles Erickson at for more information, or visit their web site.

Marcia B. Siegel: One week intensive
Restaging the Ballets Russes

March 29-April 2
MWF 12:30 – 2:30pm
TTh 12:30 – 4:15pm
142 SU (Studio 5 Whitebox) and TRI
A hundred years after its first season in Paris, the Ballet Russes de Serge Diaghilev has attained legendary status in the annals of dance. Five principal choreographers, Michel Fokine, Vaslav Nijinsky, LĂ©onide Massine, Bronislava Nijinska, and George Balanchine, represent the two-decade evolution of the company and have become the founders of modern ballet. With the demise of virtually all the original participants and first-hand observers, our generation must determine whether the Ballets Russes can have a viable presence on the stage, or whether it is best preserved in the collective memory. This course will explore both the legend and the legacy of the Ballets Russes. Concentrating on staged representations of the ballets, we will look at how choreography is documented, preserved in ongoing repertory, recovered from inactive repertory, and reconstituted when it has lapsed.
