  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • | 9:00am - 4:00pm | Kids, dance; youth; workshop; Bellingham Repertory Dance
    - Bellingham Repertory Dance is offering a winter dance intensive for pre-professional contemporary dancers in the Pacific Northwest. During the three-day workshop, dancers ages 13-18 will be immersed in a variety of technique, repertory, and conditioning classes with the professional company members of Bellingham Repertory Dance. Dancers will participate in a full day of learning from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm including technique, conditioning, and repertory classes each day. At the conclusion of the three-day intensive, students will perform work from the week’s rep and technique courses in an informal showing open to parents and community members. The intensive runs Wednesday-Friday, December 28th-30th at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center. Register for the workshop on or before November 15th for $175 per dancer. Late registration is available until December 28th for $225.

    Established in 2006 Bellingham Repertory Dance has a long history fostering artistry and technique in the growing community of contemporary dancers in the Pacific Northwest. The Youth Contemporary Intensive will be led by company members of Bellingham Repertory Dance, many whom have performed and taught professionally across the country. Classes each day include conditioning for dancers, contemporary technique, ballet, and two repertory sessions during which dancers will get to learn choreography from the company’s portfolio of work from nationally recognized choreographers. Lectures on anatomical, cultural, and professional aspects of dance--participant-favorites in past BRD intensives--will return in the winter intensive, as well as a new panel discussion format in which young dancers will have the opportunity to ask questions of the diverse dancers of BRD.

    “This was an amazing experience” which offered “the freedom of movement and encouragement to push ourselves,” said participants in the 2015 winter intensive. Many repeat attendees at the five-day summer workshop “can’t wait for winter” and “would do this year round!” “This intensive worked me, taught me, filled me with energy and exhaustion!”

    Bellingham Repertory Dance’s Youth Contemporary Intensive will take place at the gorgeous Firehouse Performing Arts Center at 1314 Harris Ave. Participating dancers must be 13-18 years old and have at least two years of dance technique experience (or special permission from BRD company members).
