We will hold a Park Hall Trustee meeting at 7pm on July 21st. Members of the public esp residents of Ben Lomond, are welcome to attend.
The remarkable career and revolutionary private life of feminist dancer Isadora Duncan will be highlighted in a performance by Duncan expert Lois Flood on Sunday, January 19, 7pm at Park Hall, 9400 Mill Blvd., Ben Lomond, http://parkhall.benlomond.org/. The performance features segments of fascinating historical narration followed by authentic dancing by Flood wearing a variety of gold, orange and white tunics with the iconic scarves that Isadora used as a dance partner, with readings by guest poet Marjorie Lynne Wagner.
Duncan is considered an icon of women seeking equality and freedom as she rejected the cultural and legal restrictions placed on women in the early 1900’s, suffered many tragedies in her life, and inspired thousands of people with her dancing. Hundreds of families brought their daughters to her dance schools in the US, Europe and even Communist Russia.
Presented by the Valley Women’s Club’s Women’s Issues Committee, www.valleywomensclub.com, the program is free and suitable for all ages. History buffs, dance lovers and those concerned with women’s issues will all enjoy the program. Refreshments will be served. For information call Nancy at 338-6578.
