After months of preparation, a local dance class will stage flash mobs

WENATCHEE — It starts with a beat. A catchy dance song plays from an unseen stereo. Someone begins to dance, looking a little silly. And then another person joins them. And another, until dozens of people are dancing a coordinated routine in a public place while passers-by look on in surprise. It’s called a flash mob, and while it seems spontaneous, months of preparation have led to this moment.

Museum seeks local art

The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center is inviting artists living in North Central Washington to submit their work to the North Central Washington Juried Art Show. Artists over 18 years of age currently residing in Benton, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Klickitat, Okanogan and Yakima Counties are eligible to apply. All art submitted must be original, for sale, and completed in the last two years.
