September 30, 2016Human Nature Dance Theater returns to Arcosanti for their 23rd annual performance this Saturday, October 1. 2016.Human Nature Dance Theater presentsMIGRATIONSaturady, October 1, 2016“When does it become necessary to move from one’s home? Think of the phases of life that you must pass through to come to a time, when you pack your essentials and walk out the door, perhaps never to return. We live the american dream of working hard, building a home to raise a family, let them fly and then we settle in to retire. I imagine a disaster that might cause me to build up reserves, cut back on expenses and hunker down in my home. But what if the storm is so severe, that the only recourse is to abandon everything and search out a new land on which to start again. Some of us are living that life now. First one, then another and then entire communities floating over seas, walking across borders and landing in unknown territory with no map of the future, like butterflies.” –HNDT5:00 pm: Tour of Arcosanti 6:00 pm: Dinner 7:30 pm: PerformanceDinner and performance: $40 ($30 for students) Performance only: $20 ($10 for students)Human Nature Dance Theatre creates original dance performance, as a collective of cross-disciplinary artists, emphasizing experimental, environmental, and inter-generational perspectives.

Kennedy had the distinct honor of having Jason and his siblings as students from kindergarten to sixth grade.“I can honestly say that even at that young age, there was no sweeter, more giving child or devoted family,” said Kennedy, of Davison “Although losing Jason has been tragic to the community that knew and loved him, especially his parents and brothers that also bravely served their country, I’m proud to stand with my colleagues to memorialize his service and sacrifice.”Freiwald served on SEAL Team 5 for two years before transferring to SEAL Team 3 in Coronado.House Bill 4061 moves to the Senate for consideration.### Categories: News,Yaroch News 01Mar Reps.
