Fit/Dance with Adah Frank
Starting Thursday, June 8, 2017
Thursdays, 10 – 11 a.m. at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts (access through the side office door at 34 Tinker Street, down the path to the right of Marigold Home).
No class meetings on the following dates: July 6, August 24, October 12, October 19, November 23, November 30.

What: A fusion class that combines elements from yoga, strength, stretch and agility exercises, and dance

For whom: Excellent for reasonably active aging bodies (and younger ones!). Men and women.

The dance part of this class uses a vocabulary of movement drawn from various disciplines – African, modern, Caribbean, Latin and some improv thrown in. It’s all about community, heat-generation, and inspiring music. We start with a warm-up, move into some dance moves (no need to have a dance background – just have fun), and the last 20 minutes or so are devoted to targeted strength exercises, stretching, and yoga.

Cost: $12, paid directly to instructor in class.

Please bring a mat and dress appropriately – comfy work-out clothing and well-cushioned shoes.

About the instructor: Adah Frank has been dancing, running, hiking, biking, and more for a very long time, and loves to move! She acquired her personal training certification 25 + years ago and her yoga teacher certification in 2008. She has studied sacred and secular African and Afro-Carribbean dance for over 20 years. Adah also leads therapeutic movement groups at Health Alliance in the in-patient mental health unit.

Lokasparśa Dance Projects presents Bone Chorus @ BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts
Nov 5 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Lokasparśa Dance Projects with Circle of Friends for the Dying presents “Bone Chorus”.

“Bone Chorus” shakes out ideas about our mortality to expose what sifts down into raw experience. The choral soundscape and live vocals set the stage for moving explorations of community, solitude, commitment, joy, and the many faces of loss. Audiences at past performances described “Bone Chorus” as intense, sobering, emotionally powerful, and simply beautiful.

Tickets will be available at $25, $50 and $100 levels. Net proceeds benefit Circle of Friends for the Dying.

Choreographed by clyde forth in collaboration with Jennifer Lavenhar and Caitlin Quinn.
Performed by Andy Kriger, Jennifer Lavenhar, Charla Ruby Malamed, Brandon Perdomo, Sharon Penz, Caitlin Quinn, and clyde forth.
Musical score includes compositions and excerpts by Gyorgy Ligeti, Meredith Monk, Eric Whitacre and Max Richter.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Dear Artist,

You are invited to participate in Byrdcliffe’s Eighteenth Annual 5 by 7 Show—please make a small work for us!

Byrdcliffe’s 5 by 7 Show is one of Woodstock’s premier events, showing artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond. Works are hung in our Kleinert/James Center for the Arts and exhibited anonymously, a playful way to give equal voice to all—so, please only sign the back of your work! All 5 by 7’s are sold for only $100 each. The opening reception (to which all of this year’s contributing artists receive complimentary admission) is a true Woodstock happening; we had over 400 attendees last year. This is a major fundraising event for the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild; by contributing a small work you will help support our high-quality programming in the arts, including exhibitions and performances.

Guidelines for the exhibition:

–Work is due no later than FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2017, 5:00 PM
–Please limit the number of 5 by 7 works to two
–Artwork must be dry (and if framed, ready to hang). Wet paintings cannot be accepted, sorry!
–Final size must be 5 x 7 inches or 7 x 5 inches – including frame. Please do NOT put work in frames measuring 6 x 8, 8 x 10, etc. ALL MEDIA ACCEPTED! 5 x 7 shadowboxes are great for jewelry.
–Please do NOT write your name on the front of the work! Write on the BACK only: your name, address and email; also indicate the top of your work.
–Mail or drop off at: Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild (attn. Derin Tanyol), 34 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY 12498. Tuesday – Friday, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm | or Byrdcliffe Shop, 36 Tinker Street. Shop hours: Thursday – Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm
The Preview Party is Friday, December 1, 5:00 – 7:00 pm; attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a 5 by 7 before the gallery opens to the public at noon on Saturday, December 2
–The price of admission to the Preview Party is $10 – free for this year’s 5 by 7 artists; artists’ spouses/partners/family members must pay…it’s a fundraiser! Free for children under 12.
–All work unsold by December 22, 2017 will be discounted to $50
–Artists are requested to pick up unsold work after the show closes, or to please include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you’d like unsold work mailed to you. You are of course welcome to resubmit it in subsequent years, but unfortunately we are unable to store it.

If you want us to mail you a 5 by 7 canvas board, please email or call us. You may also use your own equivalent sized surface. Please make sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email on the back of your work so we may thank you properly and inform you of the purchaser in the event your work sells.

Your participation makes a real difference to us. We very much look forward to seeing your 5 by 7 this year!

Very best wishes,
