Navigating the Healthcare and Benefits MazeA Legal Perspective

From Idea to Reality: Choreographers at Work

In this class you will join Dr. Janice LaPointe-Crump in exploring how recognized choreographers begin with inspired and imagined feelings or ideas; conduct personal research; develop movement motifs and images; dream, improvise and play, then dream and improvise some more. Excerpts of key 20th century works will reveal the creative challenges of seminal choreographers when they took on challenges caused by cultural and artistic shifts in our fast changing world.

What Started in Texas Has Changed the World

Dr. Diana Mason is calling all native Texans and those who got here as fast as you could! A notable bull rider once said, “It ain’t braggin’ if it’s true!” This class will explore the facts, fiction and folklore of Texas as they relate to the advances in science and technology that have changed the world. This class is an expanded version of Dr. Mason’s previous presentation. The pre/post WWII sessions cover the scientific discoveries that started here. The last session is completely new and focuses on today’s economic status of Texas.
