dance camp for girls

We are excited for year 2 of dance camp. This camp is for girls entering 4th, 5th and 6th grade in the fall. The emphasis is on creating dance through story, group work and free dance exploration.

In addition to making our own dances we engage in art journals, daily walks, drawing inspiration from nature (mingled with our imagination of course) and daily yoga with Sandy McDonald of Yoga Umbrella.

Details and registration

LED streetlights: an abomination?

Some of us hate the new streetlights. If you're one, you may want to check out the petition at ipetition and see if you'd like to sign.

The petition asks the City Council and the Mayor to hear us about the new lights re: intensity, glare, expansiveness, color and/or intrusiveness. If you are interested in getting these lights addressed, please post wildly. I am not tech-savvy and have no blog. So, I am reaching out to neighbors to try to get us in touch about it.

If you love them, please don't try to convince me. I hate 'em. There must be an energy-efficient way to deal with our dear, dark streets around the lake. If Columbia City proper likes them, I don't mind. Just not on the residential streets in quiet areas.

I've also started a discussion thread here.
