PIEDMONT — Piedmont’s 52nd Annual Bird Calling Contest is probably the one night of the year that high school students don’t feel they have to look or act cool. And Friday, the Piedmont High juniors and seniors who took to the stage for the contest looked and sounded downright goofy as they chortled and cawed like butcherbirds and owls. Take Sarah Baldwin’s role in her team’s impersonation of the greater prairie chicken. Baldwin, who said she only practiced the call for a day or so, bent over and knocked her fist on her throat to do her part of the team’s call, all while dressed as a chicken complete with chicken feet.
She’ll bring one of those friends on stage with her at the Mountain Winery, Themba, a 4-year-old male ambassador cheetah from The Wild Cat Education & Conservation Fund in Occidental, will likely steal the spotlight once he descends on the stage, Pat Puder, a longtime Saratoga resident and a field executive for the Northern California chapter of CCF who is coordinating the event, noted that watercolor ballet shoes printable wall art - ballet wall decor - office / studio wall art - girls room - ballet gift - digital a the animal will be on a leash and controlled by two handlers, “This is not a cheetah for petting, so we can’t promise individual photos with the cheetah and petting the cheetah,” Puder said..
Ware recalls two years ago when he finally had the chance to leave his post and see Endo perform, expecting to see great taiko and being totally surprised. “Endo’s taiko, but he’s fusion jazz and so much more than the category implies. So when you see this master taiko headliner, you see how he’s integrated it into this really great fusion jazz and how accomplished everybody is,” Ware said. “That’s why it’s so stunning because you’re sitting there and thinking, ‘This guy is so good.’ “.
An instructor of a Bollywood dance class at the Saratoga YMCA will be on hand with a group of other instructors to teach the less daring dance steps, At the end, everybody performs together, Thakker said, A performance by students in the Indian Cultural Awareness Club at Saratoga High School is sure to be one of the night’s many highlights, Saratoga High students will also serve as the event’s emcees, For those who work up an appetite while dancing up a storm, refreshments will be available, as will food catered by Chaat House, according to Thakker, Big Basin Cafe will provide drinks watercolor ballet shoes printable wall art - ballet wall decor - office / studio wall art - girls room - ballet gift - digital a and gelato..
