Thank you to everyone who came out last night, to the first Jansen & Holm science fair!  You made it a wonderful night for a fundraising gala, and a fun, science-filled, delicious snacks and great company sort of night as well.  With your presence and generosity, you are bringing about our upcoming show Field Notes from Shaky Places.  Rehearsal time, photography, videography, paying our crew, all the myriad expenses of a production have been made easier due to your help.  Congratulations, dance supporters!

A HUGE special thank you goes to Michelle Bialeck, whose talk on microevolution was really fascinating.  (Fish can evolve to attack and hunt pigeons you guys!! It’s happening!!)

And lastly- for those of you who couldn’t make it, or for those of you who want to relive the magic- a little baking soda volcano video….


Come re-live your potato-battery days, while supporting dance!  Jansen & Holm are throwing a Science Fair themed fundraising party on October 15th.  The event will generate vital funds for the production of their show, Field Notes from Shaky Places, on Oct. 26th and 27th, while at the same time being a fantastic way to spend an evening.

Douglas Adams wrote “The thing about evolution is that if it hasn’t turned your brain inside out, you haven’t understood it.” Come accomplish that brain-turning at Michelle Bialeck’s talk on microevolution- while sipping cold brews, eating delicious refreshments, dancing to wonderful music, out-bidding each other for alluring prizes, and hanging out with fascinating people. There might even be a diorama or two.

And if you do want to bring that first grade science project you’ve been keeping all those years- I won’t say no.  Well, maybe if it’s the exploding volcano kind.
