Modern Millie

New London, NH producer Simeon Morrow recently caught up with choreographer Millie Heckler in her Montpelier studio. Her one-of-a-kind House Dance style combines ballet, hip-hop, and Irish step dancing. She demands "full expression" from her dancers as a kind of movement therapy for trauma. "The opposite of being traumatized is being able to express yourself.”

Concord Conversation

NH State Reps. Tom Dolan and Wayne MacDonald discuss the budget and the role of conference committees in pending legislation. "Both parties are very proud of the fact we don't have an income tax," says MacDonald. "This budget increases funding and eliminates the [interest and dividends] tax. It's great we're getting rid of it." Courtesy LACTV.

I Brake for Moose

A good idea in a car and also a great song by the rock band Chodus at last month's JAM Pride Prom 2.0, the "Yeehaw" Edition. Junction Arts & Media's Pride Prom is an annual all-ages community event celebrating Pride and all things queer in White River Junction. Other local bands performing included Caring Babies and Girlspit. Check out the full playlist on YouTube.

Check out these high schoolers' masterpiece, if you dare! Camp directed by Chico Eastridge with Cedar O'Dowd and Kealin Rooney. Special thanks to: David Briggs, Alex Rapf, Duncan Nichols, Plainfield Country Store, C&S Pizza, Center for Cartoon Studies.

A pizza restaurant created where Than Wheeler's Tavern once operated.
