Perseverance hosts workshop reading

Dance academy accepting applications

Janice Holst's summer dance academy is now accepting applications. The camp will run from June 25 to July 20 at the Elks Hall. Students 7 to 17 attend from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, while 4- to 7-year-olds attend Tuesdays and Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m.

Participants dabble in dance and crafts, ultimately choreographing and building the sets for a full-scale production. The show is chosen on the first day of class, Holst said.

"We pretend we're producers in New York, and then we decide what show we want to do," she said. "It's very creative, very fun."

Contact Holst at 586-1462.

Sitka market accepting entries

The Sitka Trade Market 2001 has called for artists and craftspeople to apply for vendor space at the juried market, which will be held Oct. 26- 28 in Sitka.

"You can't just send your money and be given a space," said market organizer Kristie Sherrodd. "You have to send in photos of your products and your display. ... We have more applications than we have spaces for, so we're going to pick the highest quality stuff."

This will be the third year for the market, which was previously affiliated with the Sitka Whale Festival. In the past, artists have included potters, weavers, clothing and soap makers, jewelers, stained glass makers and Native artists.

Average attendance was about 2,500 people, Sherrodd said.

"I am expecting more people this year," she added. "We're expecting more vendors this year, (and) we've expanded the area ... that we're using."

Booth rental is $135-$175 for the three-day market, with an application deadline of Aug. 15.
