Learn Final Cut X with Mitchell Rose. The FCPX Workshop for this Friday has been postponed a week (because of grad auditions).  It will now be on Friday, January 24, 2014 from 5-7:30pm.  FCPX is completely different from FCP7; it's not just an upgrade, it's an entirely new paradigm that will be difficult to figure out on your own. If you know FCP7 and want to keep editing, come to the workshop. The signup is on Mitchell Rose’s office door. If you have FCPX on your own laptop, no need to sign up, just bring it. You can download a free 30-day trial of FCPX from the Apple App Store. If you're taking Dance-Film I this semester, there's no need to take the workshop, as it will be taught in class. FCP7 will remain on the computers for one more semester. Participants, before the workshop download a folder called "FCP7 > FCPX Workshop" from the teacher's hard drive in the Lab. See you there!

Ten Tiny Performances. Friday, January 24 and Saturday, January 25, 2014. 8pm on Friday and 7-9pm on Saturday, at the Garden Theater, Short North Stage, 1187 North High St. Audiences will see work by artists working in various mediums, including dance, theatre, and visual art. Pulling from Columbus' diverse art scenes, all performances will take place on a 4’ by 4’ stage, which over the course of the evening will be shared by Harmony Bench, Alison Crocetta, Evan Dawson, Jeff Fouch with Christeen Stridsberg, Ani Javian, Danielle Julian Norton, Bebe Miller, Paige Phillips, Preston Witt, and Abby Zbikowski.

2014 Nonprofit Opportunities Fair
. Thursday, January 30, 2014. 10am-3pm in the Ohio Union’s Performance Hall. Careers in the nonprofit or philanthropic sector are a great way for students to acquire transferable skills that would look great on a resume. Leadership skills, communication skills, organizational skills, team-building, and attention to detail are just a few of the skills that a student can acquire while working with nonprofit organizations. Additionally, nonprofit organizations provide value resume-building experiences for any student looking to work in the human service sector after graduation.

The Labanotation Teacher Certification Course will be offered this summer, June 2-12, 2014 at OSU. The course will emphasize varied approaches to integrating notation across the curriculum in addition to teaching Motif/Elementary Labanotation theory. Applications now due February 15.

Through the course, teachers will:
  • refine their teaching via practice classes and discussions;
  • develop a course in their area of expertise integrating Motif/Labanotation; and
  • achieve teaching certification at the motif/elementary level upon successful completion of the course.
Teachers may easily upgrade later to intermediate without re-taking the course.
