Calling dancers and arts youth, in-person

Arts kids and dancers, rejoice! Vashon Center for the Arts is now registering students for a roster of spring classes, starting this month — with offerings in filmmaking, clay, drama, wellness, photography, and dance.

The dance program includes ballet classes with Vadne White as well as other classes taught by Madeline Morser, Duncan Barlow, Elise Erickson, Tiffany Adams and Joy Ghigleri. An advanced ballet masterclass with Leah Terada, from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, will also be offered.

According to VCA Executive Director Allison Halsted-Reid, the health and safety of students is paramount, with classes offered both indoors and out, as well as some available on Zoom. Extensive protocols, including limited class sizes and other measures, have been developed in consultation with Vashon’s Medical Reserve Corps. In case of known COVID exposure or contact risk, VCA staff will immediately consult the MRC and follow their guidance on the appropriate steps to keep all students safe.

To find out more about the offerings and safety protocols, visit vashoncenterforthearts.org.

Watch Original Works online

A filmed edition by Vashon Center for Dance, “Original Works,” will air at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 10, at vashoncenterforthearts.org. The show includes original choreography by 15 dancers who have been working on their pieces for months.

“Original Works” has been a showcase for Vashon Center for Dance students for many years — this year, the students pivoted to present their works on film.

Ink to Spill releases new single

Ink to Spill, a band that includes Vashon’s own Gus Reeves, has released a new single, “Hyd’N,” the first song of a trilogy related to the death of band member Bob Sauer’s father, following a long battle with addiction. Described as a hard-hitting track with bluesy undertones and rock and roll riffs, the song is intended to help others dealing with a loved ones’ difficult battles. Find out more about the band, and watch the video of the song, at inktospill.com.
