BRIEFLY: Be part of the dancing fun

By
March 3, 2011 |

Pig Day at the Davis Farmers Market on Saturday will feature a public dance project at 11 a.m., 11:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Called “Takin’ It to the Streets … Dance In Public Places,” the ongoing event is jointly funded by the city of Davis’ Arts Contract Program and the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop.

“Have you ever thought that it would be wonderful if people occasionally burst into dance in the middle of everyday life? Well… come and help us make it happen!” said Trokanski, a longtime local dancer and instructor.

Trokanski also invites “all Davis residents to come and take free classes to learn choreography and improvisation techniques that can be performed in public.”

The Thursday evening class runs from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and a Saturday class (beginning March 12) runs from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. For more information, contact Trokanski at (530) 756-3949 or visit http://www.trokanski.com.

Gates reschedules Mondavi lecture

Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. has postponed his scheduled lecture at UC Davis’ Mondavi Center due to the death of his close friend and Harvard University colleague, the Rev. Peter J. Gomes, Mondavi officials have announced.

His appearance, scheduled for Monday, will take place at 8 p.m. Monday, May 9, in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center.

Patrons who have purchased tickets to Gates’ lecture have two options: hold on to their existing tickets, which will be honored at the May 9 lecture, or call the Mondavi Center ticket office for a refund. Tickets also may be exchanged for another Mondavi Center event.

For more information on refunds or exchanges, call (530) 754-2787 before May 8. The ticket office is open from noon to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

Thompson tapped for subcommittee

Rep. Mike Thompson has been selected to serve as ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Human Intelligence, Analysis and Counterintelligence.

As its top-ranking Democrat, Thompson, D-St. Helena, will help oversee the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies. Their responsibilities include rooting out threats posed by espionage or terrorism, nuclear proliferation, drug smuggling and human trafficking.

“Strong, viable intelligence is the most effective way to keep America safe,” Thompson said in a news release. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure our intelligence community has the resources it needs. Nothing could be more important to the security of our country and our people.”

Thompson also will serve on the Subcommittee on Oversight, which investigations  allegations of waste, fraud, abuse and other wrongdoings and within the intelligence community.

He has been a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence since 2007.

Author focuses on Latin America

Author Benjamin Dangl will present his book, “Dancing with Dynamite,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 4, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis. A discussion about people power and social change, and what we can learn from Latin America, will follow.

For more information, call the bookstore at (530) 758-4040.
