Ballet-student choreography

Four students who are graduating from Friends University on Saturday with fine-arts degrees in ballet will have their work showcased Friday in the Riney Fine Arts Center’s Sebits Auditorium on campus, 2100 W. University. The Student Choreography Showcase will feature classical and contemporary dancing after the style of each of the choreographers. It is free to the public and will start at 7:30 p.m. Seating will be general admission. The four student choreographers are Krissy Adams, Ryan Frier, Sophie Meyers and Taylor Osterman. Part of their coursework was choreographing a piece for the showcase.

The artistry of moccasins

The entire permanent collection of moccasins at the Mid-America All-Indian Center is on display for the first time in an exhibit called “Walk a Mile in Our Moccasins.” Because of new acquisitions, some of the moccasins have never been displayed before. Visitors can see 40 pairs from more than a dozen tribes through the Plains and the Northwest. The exhibit, which will run through the summer, also shows how moccasins have been made through the years and how you could tell the tribe of a person by his moccasins. The exhibit is included in center admission: $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students and military; $3 for children ages 6 to 12; and free for children under 6. There will be a special $1 admission for everyone May 18. Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The center is at 650 N. Seneca. For more information, call 316-350-3340.
