Claude Bourbon to perform at EWC

Claude BourbonThe Eastern Wyoming Arts Council presents Claude Bourbon. This performance will take place on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. in the Eastern Wyoming College Cafeteria in Torrington, Wyoming.
Born in France in the early 60’s, Claude Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained for many years. This finger picking guitarist has performed and studied all over the world; he has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of Western folk.
The unique Monsieur Bourbon is a formidable performer. He may have his roots in the blues, but he is inspired by music and song from all around the world, taking these sounds and weaving them into a performance of blues, rock, jazz, songs and melodies that defy a label, all delivered with a gravelly voice.

Also featured local artist Marvie Tipsword will display a variety of her work for the public to enjoy before and after this performance.

Pre-concert tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students. Tickets at the door will be $20 adults and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the Community Education office or by calling 307.532.8213 or 307.532.8323.

Beginning Hooping—Not Your Grandmother’s Hula Hooping

  • Instructor:  Ashley Parrie
  • Date:  Tuesday/Thursday, April 1 to May 23
  • Time:  8:00-9:00am
  • Cost:  $80
  • Location:  FA Dance room

Hooping vs  Hoola Hooping:  Hooping is way more fun than the hula hooping we remember as a child, because the bigger and heavier hoop rotates slower around your body.  This means even if you think you can’t hoop, with one of these hoops, you can!  Everybody can hoop, regardless of age, size, or sense of rhythm.  The added weight of the hoop provides a workout challenge which instantly burns calories.  It is a great low impact exercise alternative that provides a whole body workout, bringing you to a nice sweat, and like any cardiovascular exercise, it can hit the reset button on a bad mood.  Hooping takes you out of the hectic, harried pace of your daily routine and transcends you into a completely holistic and uplifting workout.
