Local residents will have an opportunity to dance away their winter blues starting in early February at Western Carolina University.

“Beginning Ballroom” dance classes will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays beginning Feb. 3 and continuing until March 17. Participants will learn dances such as the waltz, tango, cha-cha, swing and fox trot, as well as the basics of leading and following in social ballroom dance.


Western Carolina University’s School of Stage and Screen will present the Neil Labute comedy “Reasons to Be Pretty,” an examination of the trials and tribulations of male-female relationships, Wednesday, Feb. 9, through Saturday, Feb. 12.

The production, part of the University Theatre’s Mainstage Seasons for 2010-11, explores the anatomy of a breakup after Steph learns boyfriend Greg had categorized her looks, specifically her face, as “regular,” said Claire Eye, assistant professor of theatre and director of “Reasons to Be Pretty.”


Nikki Corbin at the microphone, Samuel Crabtree on the drums and Amanda Munger at the piano, rehearse for “De Lovely”, a dinner show featuring the music of Cole Porter.

Performances are Feb. 3, 4, 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.


To borrow a phrase from her biggest hit, Vanessa Carlton will be “making her way downtown” to perform a free concert at 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14, in the Grandroom of Western Carolina University’s A.K. Hinds University Center.

The concert is presented by WCU’s Department of Residential Living and the University Center.
