The Iowa City Public Library will host a stage fighting workshop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3, in Meeting Room A. This event coincides with Shakespeare’s First Folio exhibit at the University of Iowa Libraries Aug. 29 through Sept. 25.
Lukas Brasherfons, a master of fine arts student in dramaturgy at the University of Iowa, will lead the two-hour introduction to unarmed combat for the stage. He'll show participants how to safely punch, slap and fall in the most basic of ways. The lesson will tie into how William Shakespeare used violence in his plays.
This workshop is intended for teens ages 13 through 18. Registration is not required.

Cyclo-Cross is a tough terrain, off-road cycling sport where athletes often hop on and off of their bike and carry it through various obstacles.
The three-day cyclo-cross festival is a combination of the annual Volkswagen Jingle Cross Cyclo-Cross Festival and the Telenet UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup series. Typically the Jingle Cross Festival takes place in late November or early December at the Johnson County Fairgrounds but with this year’s addition of the UCI World Cup Series, all events will be held September 22-25, 2016.
There are plenty of opportunities for volunteers to help while being part of an event that brings together the best cyclo-cross talent in the world.
September 22 – Opening Ceremony at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area, “Iowa City Welcomes the World”. The evening will start at 5:30 p.m. with live music by Lonesome Road, a kid’s bike ride, participating UCI World Cup team presentations, and a spectacular fireworks display.
September 23: Amateur races start as early as 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day with races under the lights and a D.J. party on Mt. Krumpit.
September 24: World Cup Day. The day will start with a gravel and road fondo starting and ending at the Johnson County Fairgrounds. The day is planned with VIP zones, kids’ races, food vendors, armed forces recognition, live music by Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and the Crooked Mile along with the excitement building for the UCI World Cup races starting at 3:30 p.m.. The UCI World Cup races will be broadcasted live to Europe.
September 25: The amateur and UCI races resume starting at 8:00 a.m. and continuing throughout the day with the last race ending after 6:00 p.m.
All of these events require a lot of help in various capacities.
A sign-up system has been developed with job descriptions and time slots for volunteers to choose what works best with their schedule and abilities. This is also a perfect opportunity for corporate or business group volunteers.
Instinctively, cats know the benefits of stretching. As humans, we could incorporate more of it into our daily lives. The Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center is teaming up with Jazzercise Iowa City Fitness Center to offer a special mat-based stretching class -- Cats & Mats -- on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016 at 4 p.m. The class will be held at the Jazzercise Iowa City Fitness Center, 1010 S. Gilbert Street.
During this fun class, participants will work through strength and stretching routines while kittens from the Animal Center are released in the studio. Playing with the kittens and incorporating them into the routines will be highly encouraged.
“I’ve adopted three kittens from the Iowa City Animal Center and have a soft spot in my heart for the animals and people there,” says Kristi Bontrager, owner of the Jazzercise Iowa City Fitness Center. “I thought it would be fun to bring people together with kittens during a stretching class. I know I love getting down on the floor with my own cats while I prepare to teach my classes.”
Tickets for the class are $20 and all proceeds go to the Friends of the Animal Center Foundation. Participants can register online at bit.ly/catsmats.
“We are excited to partner with Kristi and Jazzercise for this fundraising class,” said Liz Ford, Supervisor for the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center. “We get such good support from the Iowa City community and this is just another way for us to bring adoptable animals to people. Plus, we thought it would be great fun!”
Space is limited. Participants should bring a mat, but are asked to leave their own cats at home. Only kittens from the Iowa City Animal Center will be participating in the class.
If you are unable to attend the event but still want to make an impact, you can donate directly to animal care through the Friends of the Animal Center Foundation at it.ly/donateFACF.
