Barbara Jagoda will be signing her fabulous story about Magna Terra Smoky on Saturday, March 9 from 1-3 p.m.  Below is a description of her book.  A portion of each sale will go to a horse rescue.  Please stop by to meet Barbara and hear Smoky's amazing story. Refreshments will be served.
 
"For all the unfortunate horses who have never found that special person in their lives and who often, through no fault of their own, ended up at a merciless dead end auction, this story has been written. Fortunately, Smoky was one of the lucky ones, and his story proves as so many other similar stories have, that given half a chance, what tremendous rewards and achievements can occur. From an unruly, unwanted colt should arise such a phenomenal racehorse who broke almost every record in the Arabian Racing Books was something that no one could have ever imagined. Smoky was living proof of what a little luck, love, patience and determination could produce. The author has attempted to take the reader on the tumultuous journey that she and Smoky traveled from the day she first saw Smoky to his retirement from horse racing as the “One Eyed Wonder.” some 11 years later. It is truly a “Cinderella” story to be enjoyed by anyone who loves animals." (Back Cover)

About Ormao Dance Company
Ormao embraces dance as an art form, a celebration of human connection, expression, and diverse life experience. Nationally recognized choreographers regularly contribute to our diverse repertory with content that provokes, challenges, and entertains while encouraging diversity and tolerance. We seek to engage and grow audiences for dance with performances in theaters as well as unexpected places such as art museums, abandoned buildings, and construction zones.
 
fullsizeoutput_2abc 2Janet Johnson  (Executive & Artistic Director) As the founder of the Ormao Dance Company (in 1990), Ms. Johnson has brought a longed for level of professional contemporary dance to our city.  Her work has brought noted choreographers to the company, given young, emerging choreographers fertile ground to launch exciting new works, and fostered a reputation for tremendous collaborations. As a choreographer, she has developed a wide repertoire of  award winning collaborative works including Bernstein Piano Solos (2018), PREPRESS (2017) and Protest (2014). Her belief in the inclusive nature of modern dance has created a company with depth of artistic expression, brilliance of technical skill, and given back to the Colorado Springs community a professional contemporary dance company they can call their own.
 
fullsizeoutput_2ade 5Mike Tyus  (Choreographer) began his artistic career in 2004 as co-founder of dance group, the Urban Poets. Tyus toured the globe reaching audiences in countries including China, South Africa, Singapore, and Turkey. After four years he began working with Cirque Du Soleil. Tyus not only performed Cirque, but also collaborated with the composer Danny Elfman. Soon after, he joined the legendary modern dance company, Pilobolus, where toured, taught, and created with new found vigour. Mike is back on tour as the lead in Cirque Du Soleil’s KOOZA, performing across Asia. Tyus has been molded by multiple teachers and dance theologies, giving him an in-depth understanding of dance as a performing art. He is influenced by concert dance, commercial dance, ballet, and breaking, utilizing all kinds of movement to connect to an ever-changing audience.
 

Laura Hymers Treglia (Choreographer) is a dance artist, teacher, and Feldenkrais Practitioner.

Who were these remarkable women who risked everything to spread the Christian message? 

Fee: $65
Please bring your own lunch, as lunch is not provided
Register Early. Walk-ins pay an additional $5.00. No Refunds. No Transfers.

St. Paul’s letter to the Romans contains the names of many women who were an integral part of the early Christian communities. Building on recent biblical scholarship, we’ll take a journey into their first century Mediterranean world for insights into their extraordinary lives as the first generation of Christian mystics. 
Be inspired by their stories as we travel back in time to be in the company of courageous women; the first Christian mystics Junia, Priscilla, and Phoebe along with their companion Paul. 

Facilitator Rick Klein is a presenter in the Befriending the Mystics series for Contemplative Vision. He is also a graduate of the Benedictine Spiritual Formation Program and was a facilitator and presenter in the program. He and his wife Lori have been married 40 years and have three children and three grandchildren. They live in Fort Collins, CO.
