En pointe! Chelsea Clinton to promote Ballet Arkansas

Ballet Arkansas sent word today that Chelsea Clinton will return to Arkansas this spring to be honored for her work in the performing arts as part of the dance group's spring gala April 26.

It's a fund-raiser. Ballet Arkansas is one of several arts groups hoping to achieve the financial ability to join the hoped-for arts corridor along Main Street.

Clinton performed with Ballet Arkansas before moving to Washington at age 12. She's on the board of the School of American Ballet in New York City.

The news sent me to my box of stuff for a photo of Chelsea and her dad at one of her earliest dance recitals, at the Children's House Montessori School. She's joined by a dancer near and dear to me. From the release:

This year's gala will be held at Supermarine of Little Rock. In addition to remarks from Clinton, the program includes cocktails, dinner, a silent and live auction, and a one night only performance by Ballet Arkansas. Tickets to the event — as well as to Spring into Motion, the company’s last Main Stage performance of the 2012-2013 season premiering at The Arkansas Repertory Theatre— can be purchased online at www.balletarkansas.org.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
