Freestyle, Adanfo Dancers, Clinton Square

Virtually everywhere I went in the past few weeks it seemed like everyone was doing their dance.  I saw African dance and freestyle moves in Clinton Square,  Salsa on the Near West Side and even ballet at today’s flash (dance) mob in Armory Square.

Lunchtime M.B.A.

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

If you get 45-minutes for lunch,or are on a short flight, read Anything You Want by Derek Sivers. I read this book today and will add it to my ongoing Personal M.B.A. reading list.  Anything… details the good, bad and unlikely in the world of entrepreneurship. These pearls of wisdom you could never get sitting in a lecture hall.

La Casita Cultural Center  (LCCC) held an open house tonight with a show to celebrate the work of Latin American artists living in Syracuse. The gallery is located on the first floor of the Lincoln Supply Building on Otisco Street.  Artists represented heritage from Cuba, Columbia, Mexico and Puerto Rico. According to Juan Cruz, artist in residence for the Near West Side Initiative, the goal was to create a space to showcase artists working in our city. He said he hopes the show “Motifs, Evocations,”  will travel to other venues as well. “Motifs…” will be at LCCC thru September.
