Gentle Yoga in a Cozy Community

Gentle YogaGentle Yoga in Cozy Community welcomes fully vaccinated students four times a week

Treat yourself to a luxurious hour of breath work, mindful movement and guided imagery for deep relaxation in our White Lake Cozy Community. Warm up the body with deliciously stretchy movement on the spine designed to build flexibility and shake out excess energy, then enter into a fully balanced, mobility minded practice before eventually settling into deep restoration at the conclusion of our sessions.

Welcoming fully vaccinated (shots plus booster) students, this class will combine functional movement, traditional Hatha, slow Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative postures to leave you feeling both accomplished and relaxed. By request, our Gentle Yoga series has been designed to create a Cozy Community amid the continued pandemic by providing a certain level of comfort for interested students in knowing that those practicing around them are protected, and in doing so, adding an additional layer of ease for those who have been hesitant to return to an in-studio, in-person practice.

For your first session, please bring proof of vaccination, and wear your mask indoors until seated at your mat. You only need to show proof of vaccination once. All levels appropriate. Feel free to wear layers for comfort. Please bring your mat and any props you like, as none will be available on site. Bring blocks, bolster, blankets or anything else you may like to create a supreme level of comfort and relaxation.

Instructors are Cindy Beth Davis-Dykema, Erin Vorgias, and Hannah Jurcich

Queen of KatweLiving in Katwe, a slum in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona, her mother Nakku Harriet, and her younger family members. She and her younger brother help their mother sell maize in the market. She also helps care for her baby brother. Her world changes the day she meets Robert Katende at a missionary program. Katende coaches soccer and teaches children to play chess at a local center. Curious, Phiona visits the center, learns the game, and becomes fascinated with it. She becomes a top player in the group under Katende's guidance.

In 2012, a book was published about Mutesi titled The Queen of Katwe: A Story of Life, Chess, and One Extraordinary Girl's Dream of Becoming a Grandmaster and authored by Tim Crothers.

We Banjo 3

We Banjo 3Debuting in the U.S. in 2012, We Banjo 3 has since emerged as fast-rising touring darlings in the country that two of the members now call home. The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet—comprised of two sets of brothers, Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley—continually push musical boundaries while maintaining an unwavering devotion to the essential audience experience. WB3 seamlessly converge the shared and varied traditions of Americana, Bluegrass, and Celtic music with popsensible songcraft to create a truly unique and gratifying signature sound.

Brilliantly commanded instruments—banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and percussion—effortlessly elevate lead singer David Howley’s propulsive voice. Live on stage, their songs carry the listener along until, at the perfect moment, the band crescendos into catchy choruses with pitch perfect harmonies. We Banjo 3 deliver their music with such palpable rapport, stunning precision, and infectious energy, it’s impossible to pigeonhole what kind of listener might suddenly consider themselves a WB3 fan. With recent stunning performances at such broad ranging festivals Merlefest, BottleRock, Summercamp, ROMP, Wintergrass and others, enthusiasts of almost every genre of music are taking notice.

Actor/comedian and musician Steve Martin says of the band, "We Banjo 3 … are making waves … here in America. They are playing the banjo in a style that I didn’t even know could be played like that.”

Northwest Cultural Blog said, "There are few adjectives left to describe the authenticity and the electrifying experience you get when you first see/hear We Banjo 3 live on stage … It’s the incorporation of each and every one of its members, their individual charisma, their energy, their passion and their very soul, that makes them one of the greatest live musical acts the world has to offer today."

A Murder Mystery Presented by the White Lake Youth Theatre

The Palace TheatreThe Night I Died at The Palace Theatre

Directed by Alexxander Evergreen

The Palace Theatre actors are just getting ready to rehearse the final scene for their latest production, "I Ain't Got No Body," when they run into a snag. The director who wrote the play is found dead onstage. Lois is shocked into an allergy attack! Ava faints! Luther orders a pizza! There's a lot of disbelief among the troupe until it becomes quite evident that Dexter Allan has, indeed, shuffled off this mortal coil. Not only that, he owed several of the actors a lot of money. "I know you can't take it with you," Gordon moans, "but apparently you can take somebody else's!" And then Frances dies! Only she doesn't really die. And then the pizza kid shows up. Only he really isn't the pizza kid. The one thing they all are sure of is their director is dead … or is he? Timothy accuses Gordon! Glenda accuses Dana! Luther can't figure out where his pizza is. And baby-faced detective Jimmy Todd has to put together all the clues. Maybe, thinks Jimmy, there are clues in the play they are producing. After all, Dexter wrote it. Was he trying to leave a hint? Or was he murdered for what was in that missing final scene? Clues intermingle with unveiled threats as cast member turns against cast member. Who heard Dexter's final words? Who kept threatening him for all to hear? And just when is Luther going to get his pizza anyway?

This comedy-filled mystery is brought to you by White Lake Youth Theatre's oldest actors, our high school team of performers, and is sponsored by the White Lake Area Women (Making a Difference).
