Break Away at JSC [174]

4/23/10: The Johnson State College Dance Ensemble entertained a rowdy crowd at Dibden Center for the Arts Friday night in Johnson.  Some of the performers traveled all the way from the Bronx to perform in the show.

In April, a small group of JSC students spent their Break Away volunteering at the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in the Bronx.

JSC students have participated in the national Break Away program for 19 years and over 1000 students have traveled around the world doing community service as an alternative to Spring Break.

In the first ever "Reverse Break Away," students from the Bronx took a trip to JSC to perform in their annual dance show.

Speaking Volumes [172]

4/12/10: Speaking Volumes is full of interesting old stuff, books, records, antiques and collectibles - each doodad with a story to tell, usually one that speaks volumes.

Owner Norbert Ender recently opened Barge Canal Market (in the same building as Speaking Volumes), a 3,600 sq ft space chock full of vintage furniture and flea market wares which he hopes will be a gathering place for the thriving Pine St arts scene.

Cool stuff has a way of finding Norbert, and he does his best to find good homes for these little bits of history.

Music: Annemieke Spoelstra,Toccare, Frédéric Chopin, Fantaisie-Impromptus in C# Minor, Opus 66

Location: Speaking Volumes, Burlington Vermont

They met as Mary Magdalene and Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and were engaged by the time they played Rizzo and Kenickie in Grease. Between the two of them they have performed in 14 Lyric shows.

During the day, he cuts hair and she is a physical therapist but when the curtain rises, they are center stage.
