With twisting and floating movements, Harvard Gaga dance course teaches students and community members to listen to their bodies Related When night falls on Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum the landscape is transformed — towering trees assume ominous forms, leaves rustle, bushes stir. It is the perfect setting, the Boston Ballet decided, to shoot a promotional spot for its season opener, a ghost-filled, romantic ballet set in medieval Germany.“When we were brainstorming ideas for our fall ballet, ‘Giselle,’ we knew our key scene was going to be the forest,” said Kristin Carr, the company’s director of creative services. “The main character, Giselle, dies of heartbreak and is buried deep in a forest haunted by Wilis — ghostly apparitions of folklore, girls who have died betrayed by their faithless lovers on the eve of their weddings.”The company was drawn to the Arboretum’s Tilia collection, a grove of sweet-scented lindens planted at the turn of the 19th century, but the space was attractive for other reasons, too. Carr said the dance company looks for opportunities to take the ballet out of the studio, creating engaging content by making use of Greater Boston’s landmarks.Ballet Master Larissa Ponomarenko, who is staging the show, said that all of the action happens outdoors, and the Arboretum’s “ponds and grand old trees” made a fitting backdrop for a work that is at times romantic and other times dramatic. “We are thankful for the opportunity and the welcoming gesture of Arboretum team for letting our creative process merge so closely with natural environment of the park,” she said.On the day of the filming the Boston Ballet production company — including artistic directors, film crew, costume and wardrobe personnel, and hair and makeup artists — arrived in the afternoon with principal dancers Viktorina Kapitonova and Patrick Yocum for a daylight shoot near Dawson Pond. Dancers performed the famous “he loves me, he loves me not” scene there before moving into the North Woods.Yocum, a principal dancer with the Boston Ballet since 2009, said performing at the Arboretum was like nothing he has done before, as outside shows are typically done on a special stage with a sprung floor.,“This is an incredible experience. It was so easy over by the pond. Everything is so curated and cut so cleanly,” he said. “It’s the most beautiful spot in Boston.”Arboretum Director William “Ned” Friedman agreed. “As the Arnold Arboretum continues to engage with other important cultural institutions in Boston, this opportunity to welcome the Boston Ballet seemed perfect.”As the sun went down, a humming generator powered studio lights and a fog machine, creating a magical ambiance. A quiet rumble echoed through the woods and ethereal dancers entered the living set before a small audience of crew, chipmunks, squirrels, and a few passersby.In this part of the Arboretum, the Tilias stand up to 130 feet high with trunks exceeding 100 inches around. The leaves resemble lopsided hearts, and according to folklore symbolize love, healing, and good luck.“Gisele” premiered in Paris in 1841 and is considered one of the greatest romantic ballets of all times. The Arboretum was founded in 1872, and the Moltka linden tree, planted in 1902, served as the point at which dancers became dreamlike figures in the fog.“The ghostly women are part of the forest and are integral to the story. You couldn’t have a better location that will capture that,” Yocum said. “To do this at night out in the woods on location is amazing.” Flowing together Misty Copeland, offstage American Ballet Theatre’s first black principal dancer shares her life story with students

Facebook Twitter Google+ About 13 rows up in the middle of section 305 of the Carrier Dome on Sunday, three Michigan State fans dressed in bright green morph suits stood, leading a group of nearly 30 of their cohorts in a run-through of the team’s fight song.Tony Golumbeck donned a green Student Engineering Council polo from his days at Michigan State and yelled at the top of his lungs. His brother, Kevin Golumbeck, sported black sunglasses while clapping along to the tune, and his father, Ron Golumbeck had sweat peeking out from beneath his green hat marked with a large silver block S.Each member of the trio had green patterned ties hanging around his neck, finishing off the outfit.“We had to wear ties because if you want to go to the Big Dance you have to be dressed up,” Kevin Golumbeck said.Tony attended graduate school at Michigan State and as a result, his sons have been lifelong fans. Tony and Ron live in Geneva, New York, about an hour west of Syracuse, but Kevin drove all the way from North Carolina for the weekend. The three were part of a dominant Michigan State crowd at the Carrier Dome on Sunday that watched Michigan State defeat Louisville, 76-70, to advance to the Final Four.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We know all of the cheers chants and we thought this would be a great opportunity to support the Spartans,” Tony said.Kevin and Tony led The Izzone, MSU’s student section, during their time as undergraduates. Every game they arrived early, sat in the first row and organized cheers.But when Ron bought the tickets to the East Regional as a future birthday present for himself, they had no idea if Michigan State was going to make it that far in the NCAA tournament or what bracket it would be in.“We just got lucky, lucky, lucky,” Ron said.On Friday, Kevin arrived in Geneva after an 11-hour trip from North Carolina, stopping only to take a two-hour nap in Pennsylvania. Tony presented Kevin and Ron with the morph suits that he had ordered online as their attire for the game.They took their seats in the upper deck of the Dome for the first game of the Sweet 16 on Friday — Louisville against North Carolina State — but three other fans walked up the to section asking for anyone wearing green.Those fans had been given four tickets behind the Michigan State bench on condition that they find a fourth MSU fan to sit with them. Tony volunteered and his dad and brother snagged seats in the lower bowl, too, from a couple that was leaving.“I mean Magic Johnson was nine rows in front of us,” Tony said, in shock. “It was awesome. Especially the second half because the first half I didn’t cut these holes yet so it was a little hard to see.”After the game, in which Michigan State defeated Oklahoma to advance to the Elite Eight, they arrived home around 2 a.m. and watched a rerun of the game they had just seen in person, picking themselves out in the crowd.On Sunday, Ron turned 65 and the three waved their towels and pompoms from the third level this time. Kevin and Tony wore sunglasses to cover the holes in their morph suits and the frames of Ron’s prescription glasses poked through the holes in his suit.Occasionally, strangers would stop by and ask to take a picture.“Oh this is the best, no doubt about it so far,” Ron said during halftime. “When they win, that’ll be the culmination of a great birthday.”As the final buzzer sounded, clinching an MSU victory of Louisville, Tony and Kevin jumped in the air and yelled. Ron clenched his fists in celebration. The three shared an embrace before joining the surrounding fans in singing the fight song for the last time.“It’s outstanding fun,” Ron said.

26 Sep 2015 Alice makes it two out of two England’s Alice Hewson has done it again – with her second win from two starts on the US women’s college circuit. Hewson, an 18-year-old international from Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, has made a dream start to her career at Clemson University in South Carolina. She tied for first place in her first tournament with a six-under par score and days later took the honours at the Lady Paladin Invitational with a score of three-under for 54 holes. She is only the second Clemson woman golfer to win consecutive tournaments. “What a tremendous accomplishment to not only win once, but to win back to back tournaments,” said Head Coach J.T. Horton of his freshman golfer. “She has tremendous poise and maturity for a freshman. We are proud of her.” Hewson had rounds of 67-73-73 in claiming the two-shot victory over Jess Meek and Michelle Butler of Missouri. Hewson is now nine-under-par for her six rounds at Clemson. Her five-under 67 in the first round of the tournament was just one shot off the Lady Paladin Tournament record and was the second best round in Clemson history. Image © Leaderboard Photography
