  • A piazza for dance, and community

    Judith Wolert-Maldonado, also known as DJ Juju, is hosting a series of Dance Piazzas this summer at 100 Corry Street. The next Dance Piazza, which takes place at 7 p.m. on July 2, will feature lessons on the bhangra dance of India. The free dances continue on the first and third Saturday of the month through September, and everyone is invited. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    Bringing people together to dance under an open sky resonates on many levels for Judith Wolert-Maldonado, who’s organized outdoor Dance Piazzas in the village every other Saturday night this summer.

    To have loved and lost is better than the usual alternative, but not quite as good as to have loved, lost and then regained love again — at least according to both 18th century composer Willibald Gluck and the leaders of Antioch College.

  • Sticky, off-the-wall art on a wall

    Several local arts supporters got in the spirit last Sunday at Chew 4 Art, which launched the Traveling Gum Wall, a collaboration of the Yellow Springs Arts Council and the JafaGirls. The public is invited to help decorate the gum wall this Saturday during the Street Fair at the Arts Council booth in the Art Park at 100 Corry Street, which is a fund-raiser for the arts group. Shown above are, at left, JafaGirls Corrine Bayraktaroglu and Nancy Mellon and at right, Arts Council coordinator Carole Braun, Tom Osborne and award-winning bubble-blower Lori Tuttle.

    You can call it art to chew on, or art that’s already been chewed. Whatever you call it, the Traveling Gum Wall is the most recent offbeat community art project by the village’s own Jafagirls, in collaboration with the Yellow Springs Arts Council.

  • Kids’ music pioneer performs at MLS

    Behind all of today’s fun and inspiring music for youth, is one African-American woman who set out with a conga drum in the cafés of Chicago in the 1950s and humbly started a wave of change that, six decades later, she and others are still riding.
