Friday CLASS w/ Sadie Leigh & Live Music by Mark H Rooney
Sadie Leigh Dance and Yoga – A class for experienced movers facilitated by a rotating panel of DX artists, local choreographers, and visiting artists committed to sharing movement-based research through their teaching. $15 or $12 w/ class card. Sadie Leigh is a dancer, choreographer, performance artist and teacher born and raised in the DC?Metroplitan area. Her movement is organically derived from source material ranging from idiosyncratic and pedestrian gestures to disappointing text messages to fever dreams and happy accidents. Using joyful improvisation and juicy rhythms, she creates choreography and scores that sweep, collapse, orbit, and twist. She delights in pairing sharp focus with bodies that are off center and spiraling. The content of her work often starts with big picture ideas, such as human connection, feminism, loss, friendship, and dissonance, and finds its footing in personal details from "that one time when..." Whether the dance is a celebration, a memorium, a diary entry, or a love letter, it is always a collaboration, and always fundamentally human.

ACRA OLO: Hosting a Successful Internship
American Cultural Resources Association – Many business leaders in the CRM industry recognize the need for talented and experienced applicants to fill entry-level and mid-level management roles in their company. When it comes to finding a candidate, too often supervisors rely on the “shotgun” effect to fill open positions when a more targeted approach can be followed. A CRM firm can find and groom talented students, while also showcasing their company culture and work environment, by hosting an intern. This 1-hour Continuing Education course introduces how to design and host a successful internship program. A pair of instructors from the Academy and professionals from two CRM companies will share their perspectives and advice about interns and the programs that employ them. The speakers will present a framework for an internship program beginning with a focus on meaningful learning and active reflection on the learning experience.

Cass R. Sunstein | Impeachment: A Citizen's Guide
Politics and Prose Bookstore – Impeachment is an essential tool of self-government, and citizens of a democracy must know how to use it. In this concise and readable primer, Cass Sunstein, one of the nation’s foremost legal scholars and former administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, uses historical and theoretical cases to illustrate what constitutes impeachable behavior and show what the people’s role is in holding presidents accountable. As he traces the founders’ thinking on this matter and carefully parses what the Constitution says about it, he clarifies many common misunderstandings regarding what counts as “high crimes and misdemeanors”; they need not always violate the law to be an impeachable offense. This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
