    Theatre and dance are collaborative art forms which sets the stage for a dynamic partnership between two vibrant downtown Bentonville youth performing arts organizations.

Trike Theatre, Northwest Arkansas professional theatre for youth and Kaleidoscope Dance Academy are combining resources to reach more NWA children and families. Located at 107 NW 2nd Street, just off the Bentonville downtown square, the two companies are sharing three studios and beginning year round classes for ages 2 years old through adults. Beginning, Monday, August 16 the classes include ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip-hop, boys hip-hop, creative drama, acting, acting for the camera, Pilates, yoga, mommy and me, and adult classes. Enrollment can take place at anytime but spaces are limited.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Laine and the Kaleidoscope staff. Through our partnership, we are now able to serve over 500 children, adults, and families. ” Said Kassie Misiewicz, Trike Theatre’s executive artistic director, “And this number doesn’t include Trike’s outreach drama program in the schools or our touring shows.”

            “When Kassie and I began talking last spring, this partnership seemed to be a natural fit. Both companies hire professional teaching artists, offer rigorous arts training for their students, and love being part of downtown Bentonville,” shares Laine Harper, Director of Kaleidoscope Dance Academy.  

    In addition to dance and theatre training classes, the two companies offer performance opportunities for their young artists. Kaleidoscope KREW is a performing and competitive dance team.  Trike Theatre’s Academy Players is an ensemble based performance company that tours productions and improv shows around NWA. Both groups act as ambassadors for their companies through touring, performing, and volunteering.

The Making of Sundance Winner Winter’s Bone

Director Debra Granik, Sweetser, and others will discuss the film, and a number of the film’s musicians and singers will perform, including singers Marideth Sisco and Linda Stoffel, bass player Tedi May, fiddler Billy Ward, guitar player Dennis Crider, banjo player Van Colbert, and mandolin player Bo Brown.

 

“The film’s production company first learned of the Shiloh Museum through its podcast series,” said Allyn Lord, museum director.  “Executive producer Jonathan Scheuer discovered the on-line podcasts when he was doing research for the film, which was shot last winter in Christian and Taney counties, Missouri .  Several of the film’s non-Ozark-native cast members found some of the museum’s podcasts helpful in their voice preparation,” Lord continued.

“While I’m interested in documenting the early days of the professional undertaker, the main focus of my research has been to study all of the ways in which people once helped one another when there was a death,” explained Burnett. My talk will cover the role of the community in nursing the sick, laying out the body, building the casket, sitting up with the body, digging the grave and holding the burial,” Burnett said.
