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.

“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.
