Today's Features

  • Students of Dance Arts Los Alamos will perform a mixed bill of original works at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at the Duane Smith Auditorium. A highlight of the evening performances will be the ballet “Symphonic Dances,” collaboration between DALA Ballet Curriculum Director Christin Severini and Executive Director Valerie Silks.
    “Symphonic Dances” boasts a cast of over 70 dancers comprising levels II–VI of DALA’s ballet program. The piece will showcase the students’ technical ability and musicality.
    Nicole Silks, a senior student at DALA, will perform the soloist role. Works by George Balanchine and Georges Bizet’s Symphony in C inspired the choreography.

  • Macchio: ‘Dancing’ judges’ comments were ‘rude’ 


    LOS ANGELES — Ralph Macchio feels like the judges on “Dancing With the Stars” didn’t give him a fair shake.
    The “Karate Kid” star was kicked off the hit ABC show Tuesday and after the credits rolled, he told reporters he “felt circled as the one couple that didn’t get praise and built up like the others did.”

  • Looking back at childhood, what memories come to mind? Having family picnics at the park? Running through an open field with friends? Gazing at the sky, making shapes out of the clouds? How about attending the Los Alamos Kite Festival?
    For the 14th year, the Los Alamos Arts Council presents the Los Alamos Kite Festival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the soccer fields at Overlook Park in White Rock. Children of all ages are welcome to join the festivities. Whether you build a kite, fly a kite, enjoy a picnic with family and friends, or just take in the artful scene, this is a community tradition not to be missed.
    Because of funding from Los Alamos National Bank, the Kite Festival is a free event.

  • Those who talk about art and want to sound like aficionados try to integrate terms like balance, harmony, proportion, movement, color, shape, form and space.
    On Friday, Fuller Lodge Art Center invites the public to attend an opening reception for “Back to Basics,” and throw around a few of these terms in conversation, or eavesdrop on the artists as they observe the collection for the first time.
    The show’s call for artists suggested they highlight one or more of the fundamental elements of art to create a lasting impression. The Art Center challenges Los Alamos residents to be the jury. Does this exhibit showcase a variety of basic elements and will you think about some of its pieces after you leave?

  • The 14th annual Los Alamos Dog Jog was greeted with perfect weather, resulting in an amazing turnout of over 300 two-legged walkers and runners and their accompanying four-legged friends.
    The 2011 Dog Jog was organized by the Atomic City Roadrunners, Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club, and the Mountain Canine Corps (MC2) search and rescue team.  At the end of the day, an outstanding $14,000 was raised for Friends of the Shelter.

  • Thank You
    for Earth Day 2011

    Each year around April 22, Earth Day, the nationally recognized day to emphasize caring for the Earth by becoming more sustainable, is honored with various activities by Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
