Event Description

Since 2005, local dance company, Dance Northwest, has produced the annual event, "Down 4 It,” bringing together over 100 local and regional performers to enhance the lives of our community members through dance. The goal of “Down 4 It” is to help support organizations such as Womenspace, Food for Lane County, and currently, To Write Love on Her Arms, while also providing an artistic outlet for those involved.

This year’s benefit event beings together a hip, energetic, congregation of Northwest talent from Eugene to Portland, with dance styles ranging from street to lyrical. Performing will be Dance Northwest, joined by student dancers from Lane Community College; one of Eugene’s favorite old school and break crew, RAWK, directed by Chris Gorney; the hard hitting, ZAPP, directed by Cindy Zreliak, Lisa Gilliams’s sassy Urban Pulse; Nathan Boozer’s dynamic company, Work; multi-faceted Phenomenon, directed by Vanessa Martin; Eileen King’s fast paced, high energy company, King’s Krew; Portland’s Push Jones co-directed by Evie Graham and Allison Franco, as well as Kristina Santo’s contemporary company, Lyrik.

Water drops on dandelion seed heads. The first rain we have had for awhile came this morning.

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.

While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
