On International Dance Day on Friday, dancers and choreographers were excited backstage in many of the city’s auditoriums as they went dancing in front of live audiences after a two-year hiatus. International Dance Day was celebrated in the city with many dance studios and dance groups showcasing their skills by participating in various dance programs in the city.

From kudos from gurus who have spent years dancing and establishing a following to new dancers showcasing their skills, every dancer in town was eager to show off their dance progress.

At the Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir, students from Sharvari Jemani’s dance company listened to their guru Sharvari as she gave them some last minute advice before their performance. Her students had 20 minutes to put on a beautiful Kathak recital as part of Nrutyotsav 22 where six dance institutes presented six different dance forms, from Bharatnatyam and Odissi to Kathak.

“Presenting a choreographed piece on International Dance Day is a blessing and an honor for my students. The only sad part is the lack of audience to watch their performance. There are several organized programs for the dance and hence the lack of a full house,” Sharvari said.

Tejashree Adige, dancer and organizer of the classical dance festival, said: “International Dance Day is an opportunity for choreographers and dancers to showcase their dance performances. As we celebrate the silver jubilee of the Nritya Kalamandir Sanstha, who has trained many dancers, we have also given awards and congratulations to dancers, in which we have awarded actress-dancer Sukanya Kulkarni for her contribution to the dance.

Latin American ballroom dancer Rocky Poonawala, who has promoted Latin American dance styles, said, “For me, dance is God and everyone in the world should dance; he must be respected as god himself. It is a form of expression that brings people together. The Rocky Poonawala Dance Academy held a special free Rumba workshop to celebrate International Dance Day.

Meanwhile, dance-goers were seen heading to The Box in Kothrud where the 13th Prayatna Film and Dance Festival 2022, organized by the Hrishikesh Pawar Contemporary Dance Center and the Avartan Dance Foundation, has started with renowned artists from various cities such as Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi and Pune showcase their artistry and share their expertise through workshops.

“This International Dance Day gives us the opportunity to show what choreographers and dancers have been able to put in place after two years of Covid-19. We have artists and pieces have been choreographed during the pandemic. These artists have used their energy to create something very beautiful. There is a need for an aging population to get involved in art and spaces need to be a bit more inclusive, which is why we have an open community class on Saturday for teachers, facilitators, patients with Parkinson’s who will come together to create something exciting,” said Hrishikesh Pawar of the Hrishikesh Pawar Center for Contemporary Dance.

It was a romance for the ages. Whoever helped build Deerfield Beach. The story tells of a couple who fell in love in the southern United States and decided to visit relatives in Florida. After spending some time there, they fell in love with the place and decided to stay there.

It’s an inspiring century-old romance that probably wouldn’t be told without the Deerfield Beach Historical Society.

Historian and storyteller Amie Kay Tanner is the daughter of the late Odas Tanner, a community leader credited with building City Hall in Deerfield Beach. She is passionate about telling the story of the love that helped build the town she grew up in.

And the Deerfield Beach Historical Society wants to share its treasure trove of information and stories about local culture and business history in the area.

TJ Eagen, the nonprofit’s new president, emphasizes spreading their offerings to educate the community about their past. They are also hosting more activities to engage the public and help build community at the former mid-century modern home of Robert and Martha Butler, which sits across from the historic Butler House. It has been transformed into a center for art, culture and community gatherings.

Eagen said he was excited to promote their storyteller and historian, Tanner. He said she is a great asset in telling the story of the town’s illustrious past, especially her knowledge of the life of the town’s pioneers JD Butler and his wife Alice.

The storyteller’s late father was also active in the historical society and was part of the story. Odas Tanner moved to Deerfield Beach as a young boy in the 1920s as the famous Butler couple settled into their new home.

Tanner likes to tell the story of the special couple’s romance that helped shape the small town of Deerfield, calling them “Uncle Jimmy” and “Aunt Alice.”

“Alice was from northern Ohio,” she said. “She was college educated and went to graduation school. Alice was well versed in literature, art, history and music. She played piano at the local Baptist church for 35 years. Alice wasn’t your ordinary lady, so I’m sure it has a lot to do with James being so fascinated by her.

At some point before they met, Alice and JD Butler separately migrated to Texas for their own personal reasons. JD moved from Georgia to Texas to work with a relative. Alice moved from Ohio to the Lone Star State for her own reasons. They met in a church, as many did 100 years ago.

“Alice and James were both Baptists,” Tanner said. “They met because the pianist at the church they both attended introduced them to. Uncle Jimmy was smitten from his first encounter with her. He basically asked her to marry him on the second date. It was she who held him back for a moment. But he was very persistent and they ended up getting married on a train.

Tanner said that after they got married, Alice asked Jimmy if he would take her to “that place in Deerfield” Florida where a relative lived. He accepted and the newlyweds went to Deerfield in 1910 from Texas. The town of Deerfield then had only about 250 inhabitants.

The butlers came to visit the relatives who were cultivating in the small town, which was a new livelihood for northerners in the arena. Farming had only been practiced since the construction of a railroad in the late 1890s. James was a Georgian farmer, so this occupation interested him.

According to Tanner, the couple stayed in Deerfield for a while and got to know some people while there. The couple took a liking to the place during their visit and James asked his new bride what she wanted to do.

“That last day in Deerfield when he gave her the option to stay or go. She ended up telling her husband that they had to stay,” Tanner recalled. “She said the people of Deerfield were their kind of people, that it was comfortable and that it was beautiful.The beautiful weather did not affect their decision either.

Tanner said that during the early years in Deerfield, the couple purchased a small wooden house near where they had built their own home. James opened a haberdashery, but he didn’t really like shopping. He was a farmer by trade, and that’s what he wanted to do.

“Interestingly, James wanted to farm and his friend Mr Thomas, who he originally came to visit, wasn’t really happy as a farmer,” she said. “Both of them decided to change jobs, so James became a farmer and Mr. Thomas became the shopkeeper.”

Tanner is full of praise for the pioneers who brought energy and effort to the Deerfield community.

“Alice and James were such a wonderful couple,” she said. “They helped build the first Baptist church with their bare hands. And Alice was one of the founding members of the Women’s Club of Deerfield Beach.

But the couple had their share of personal tragedies.

“Alice wanted a big family,” Tanner said. “Alice actually gave birth to three children, but unfortunately they all died in infancy or early childhood due to respiratory problems. They lost their children, so to replace the parenting experience, they ended up getting involved to do what they could for all the children in Deerfield at the time.

Tanner said the couple supports local youth-focused efforts.

“They supported sports activities as well as schools. They supported practically everything surrounding the children of the city. They loved children and they showed it with their actions,” she said.

Today, their home is the star attraction of the Deerfield Beach Historical Society and is known as the James D. and Alice Butler House. It was built for $10,000 in 1923, which equates to around $165,000 today.

“The couple lived there as a happy couple until their last days,” Tanner said.

The Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network, a project of the UMass Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences, will host a series of free arts and informational events over the next few weeks to highlight community health and equity issues. , especially when it comes to people. of color.

What is being called MOSAIC will offer a range of activities – storytelling, live performances, film screenings and more – at five sites in the valley and one in Berkshire County, starting April 14 at 6 p.m. with a presentation at the UMass Amherst Student Union Ballroom.

The anchor of all presentations will be a 30-minute film, in English with Spanish subtitles, by Holyoke artist Michelle Falcón Fontánez. The Hampshire College graduate, who also works in photography, installation art and theatre, uses her art to try to bring about social change.

For her film, Fontánez interviewed several people of color working in different ways to improve equity in health care in the region, such as Wilbraham poet Lynnette Elizabeth Johnson and Dayna Campbell, assistant professor of public health at the American International College of Springfield. Campbell’s research focuses on diversity and inclusion and disparities in health status and outcomes.

The Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network, a group of academic institutions and health professionals working to strengthen the region’s public health workforce, has held several annual meetings to develop new ideas and improve collaborative efforts. Risa Silverman, the band’s coordinator, said this year they went for something different.

“Instead of one big gathering…we will bring these important discussions to cities across our region with thought-provoking events,” Silverman said in a statement. These events, she added, are designed to “amplify the voices of people working within and for our communities of color toward equity, justice and representation in all aspects of life, including care. health”.

The events will include “location-specific cultural explorations,” according to advance notes, as well as varied live performances, refreshments and panel discussions.

In addition to the April 14 UMass Amherst event, MOSAIC presentations will take place April 21 in Holyoke; April 27 in Springfield; May 5 at Great Barrington; May 11 in Florence; and May 18 in Turners Falls. Many of the presentations will take place at performing arts venues; For a full schedule with locations and entry sites, visit wmhenfilm.org.
