administrative notes
Adjudication for UNPLUGGED.
Saturday, December 3, 2011 starting at 1pm in Pom 316 we will adjudicate for UNPLUGGED, this year’s Winter Concert. The performances will be March 2-3, 2012 at 8pm. All dancers and choreographers must be available for lighting/technical rehearsals the week of the performances. Details will be fleshed out and discussed in 750.
• In order to adjudicate, dances may not be longer than 8 minutes.
• All choreographers in the concert should register for 750 under Susan Petry for 2 credit hours. The class meets every Friday from 4:30-6 in 316. Hopefully all of the dancers involved will be available to attend a few of those sessions.
• We are hoping that the concert will be performed with 316 set up either in the round or as a thrust stage. These parameters will be discussed thoroughly in 750.
• The sign-up sheet will be posted in 316 at 8am on Tuesday, November 27, 2011 and come down at 10am on Thursday, December 1. Please fill in the requested information as completely as possible.
• All dancers and choreographers need to be in 316 at 1pm for clarification of the process.
• Susan Petry will ‘run’ the adjudication with Meghan, Karen, Melanye and Carrie watching.
Have a great time with it all... MKB

tech news
Servers to be decommissioned
Attention students who have created websites using the Arts servers The College of Arts and Sciences is planning to decommission the ARTS servers, home1, home2 and minuet. Current student websites that were on that server will be moved to a temporary server. Profile links on will be updated to point to those new sites. The long term plan is for a new service to be instated (likely university wide), using a content management system (CMS) that will be more accessible and user-friendly. Options are being discussed and the plan is for the new service to be up and running by autumn 2012. The sites you have already created will remain up until you graduate, but are inaccessible to updates. If you would prefer that your site be taken down completely, let me know and I will not include it in the migration. ASC Tech and ASC Communications will work out a migration plan and communication plan for this move, which I will convey to all relevant parties. Contact Melissa Bontempo (bontempo.9) if you have any questions.
