Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.5.09





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

In Kurt Vonnegut’s classic short story “Harrison Bergeron,” it was a dancer who finally shed his Orwellian body armor to soar like a swan on television, giving an involuntarily impaired audience a momentary glimpse of the human potential for grace and beauty. In similar fashion, the “Champions of Dance” leaping and gliding across the stage Tuesday at Hult Center should provide the more uncoordinated among us a chance to revel in the pure spectacle of poetry in motion. Featuring pros from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” and PBS’s “American Ballroom Challenge,” this evening of rhythm and movement is sure to delight. $18-$62, www.hultcenter.com, 682-5000.
