Trained to Elmhurst Ballet School and KS Dance, British dancer Rebecca Haw openly admits she struggled to audition for companies. After two years, she landed her first contract at the Romanian National Opera in Bucharest, dancing in the body before being promoted to first soloist. In 2016, however, his position became unstable. “Foreigners in the company weren’t as welcome anymore,” she says, referring to a period of political upheaval in Romania. “We lost our directorJohan Kobborg and many dancers also left.

Haw initially stayed with the company under the new manager, but it was clear from the start that it wasn’t going to work. “I lost most of my roles and got demoted,” Haw says. She cut her losses and moved on mid-season, eventually securing a guest contract at Semperoper Dresden which became his current permanent position.

Given Haw’s tumultuous career path, it’s no surprise that she wants to help other dancers navigate the minefield of securing and maintaining fair employment. Having already launched The hearing educator– a collection of online courses giving audition advice for professional dancers – in 2020 it went even further in January this year by establishing CODAa pioneering classical ballet agency that Haw considers the first of its kind.

Although Haw had been researching ideas around CODA for years, it wasn’t until a lightbulb moment during lockdown in November 2021 that she held an all-night whiteboard session and mapped out a structure and a vision for the agency.

Aiming to give classical dancers “the pedestal they deserve,” CODA strives to bridge the gap between performers and companies, alleviating frustrations on both sides. “In general, dancers don’t know how to talk professionally with companies. I understand; I’ve been there,” Haw says. “We encourage our dancers to let us manage communications, especially around finances and working hours.”

CODA currently represents 17 dancers of various ranks, including Houston Ballet principal Skylar Campbell and former San Francisco Ballet soloist Madison Keesler, as well as freelancers. To date, CODA has secured a range of freelance gala and festival performances from its signatories, as well as a major short-term contract.

The agency also supports some corps members, but Haw thinks the best way for CODA to help them is to help the companies’ recruitment processes. “Obviously, the final decisions will always rest with the directors, but we want to help them by shortlisting the thousands of applications they receive and making sure they get dancer selections that are right for them and vice versa,” says -she. “It will also save dancers from wasting time and money going to auditions they’re not cut out for.”

Although Haw initially thought directors would be reluctant to give up some control over recruiting, she has already struck a deal to handle the big company shortlist next season. “I never thought this would happen,” says Haw. “That was the end goal of our five-year plan.”

By recruiting for companies, Haw may be able to help reverse some of the biases implicit in the world of classical ballet that prevent dancers from succeeding. “The stakes of classical ballet are vast. That’s why I wanted to start CODA while I was still playing – you hear a lot more when you’re in than when you’re not. Simple steps CODA has already taken to mitigate bias in its own operations include not categorizing dancers by gender and not publishing details of their weight. “We evaluate all dancers based on their ability, artistry, potential and suitability for positions rather than any other check-off category. We want to pass that approach on to the companies we end up working with,” says Haw. “I also seek training and self-study from various resources. Dance Data Project has been great.

Running CODA while playing Semperoper might seem like a daunting task, but Haw says she’s “always worked alongside work.” She also runs a digital marketing agency that she founded five years ago. At 20, she started offering freelance digital marketing services to pay for her tips while working at the Romanian National Opera. “For that, I would take on more work during the summer and reduce it if I did Swan Lakefor example.”

CODA, however, was less easy to control, due to its novelty. “How quickly things exploded was a shock to the system,” she says. “A few hours after the launch, we had soloists and principals from all over the world who sent in their CVs. I had to hire an additional assistant after a week.

Now, CODA has a team of two online assistants, two classical ballet experts to help vary pre-selection and manage new ideas and processes, and a social media community manager. “I also use today’s tools, such as AI editors or appointment scheduling systems, so that I can give what I don’t need or like to machines or people. other people,” says Haw.

The team will need to grow to accommodate Haw’s ambitious plans, from setting up press teams to expanding CODA’s representation to include choreographers, guest teachers, ballet masters and even pianists and conductors. “We have found one of the best Applicant Tracking Systems and tailored its functionality to the needs of business owners and other employers, allowing CODA to accept more job seekers” , she says. “Anything the classical world comes in contact with, we’ll cover.”

A special city assembly vote to set aside $200,000 for a reassessment of properties in Dresden ended in a 28-28 tie, defeating the question, on Tuesday, August 30.

Because a few voters left after voting by secret ballot and before the count was complete, another vote could not take place, according to moderator Jeff Pierce. Another special town meeting will be scheduled in the future to consider the same issue.

City administrator Daniel Swain said Dresden has never been reassessed and most of the land data the city has is incomplete or incorrect. He said the city plans to hire a professional appraisal company to visit each of the more than 1,400 properties, measure all buildings, record conditions and update property maps with changes.

If the special municipal meeting issue had been approved, the city would have the authority to spend up to $200,000 of its undesignated fund balance, or surplus, to hire a company to perform the reassessment over a period of two year. A request for proposals would be issued and companies would submit sealed bids for the work.

Dresden resident Neal Amirault spoke out in favor of allocating $200,000 for a reassessment of city properties at a special town meeting on Tuesday, August 30." he said.  (Photo by Evan Houk)

Once property appraisals are completed, the new updated information is entered into the municipal office appraisal program, TRIO, which is able to accurately assess the value of properties based on market values ​​determined by the ‘State.

“Everyone is taxed for what they have, that’s what you want,” Swain said of the result of a reassessment. “You don’t want to be taxed for something you don’t have.”

After more than an hour of discussion, much of it centered on concerns about increased property taxes following the reassessment, resident Neal Amirault said the only taxes that will increase are for properties that have not been correctly assessed and are not increasing. -nowadays. He added that concerns about taxes should be voiced at the annual municipal meeting when the budget is voted on.

“If you’re worried about your taxes going up, it’s because you’ve done a lot of things to your property and you haven’t told anyone about it or voted for everything at the town hall,” Amirault said. . “It’s just, for me, to make life fair for everyone.”

The city’s appraisal ratio, which considers a property’s appraised value relative to its market value, is below the percentage threshold required by the state. The state can issue less funding for education and reduce the value of property exemptions if city property records and assessed values ​​are not accurate, Swain said.

Last year, all homestead exemptions for landowners in Dresden were assessed at $21,750 instead of $25,000 due to the city’s skewed assessment ratio, Swain said.

Swain said many of the city’s property records are so outdated that the appraisal company will essentially have to start from scratch to appraise parcels.

Resident Jonathan Doray and other residents questioned whether the reassessment would automatically raise taxes. Doray expressed concern about “a housing bubble” and house price inflation.

“Everyone knows the housing market is going to crash,” Doray said.

Swain said the reassessment will raise taxes for some people who may have more value in their property, in the form of additions, than when it was purchased.

Resident Justin Andrus spoke out in favor of the revaluation, saying all housing values ​​in the city have risen over the past two years and will also fall when prices calm down, putting landlords on their toes of equality.

He said the reassessment “will not change the amount of tax collected” and that the mil rate will actually decrease due to the expected increase in assessed land values ​​in town, unless the budget increases by one. proportional amount.

“It will change the proportions in which we pay our taxes. The amount of tax collected will be set by the city budget, it will be set by our vote at the annual municipal meeting,” Andrus said.

The Dresden Select Board will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6 to set the city’s mil rate. Swain said he could raise the issue of a new special town meeting at that time and the select council could then set a date that is still undetermined.

The Hindus urge Semperoper Dresden (Germany) to abandon its next production of “La Bayadère”; scheduled from February 15 to March 05, 2023; which they say seriously trivializes Eastern and other religious traditions.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (US) today, said the taxpayer-funded Semperoper Dresden was ‘one of the finest opera houses in the world’ , should not be concerned with ruthlessly promoting the appropriation of the traditions, elements and concepts of “others”; and ridicule entire communities.

Zed, who is president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, said the deeply problematic ballet was a blatant disparagement of a rich civilization and showed 19th-century Orientalist attitudes. He also urged Semperoper Dresden to apologize for such an inappropriate selection.

Semperoper Dresden should have been mature before choosing a ballet like “La Bayadère” (The Temple Dancer), showing the Western caricature of Eastern heritage and encouraging ethnic stereotypes; noted Rajan Zed.

It was highly irresponsible for Semperoper Dresden to choose such a ballet which had been blamed for patronizing a flawed mishmash of Orientalist stereotypes, dehumanizing cultural representation and misrepresentation, offensive and demeaning elements, unnecessary appropriation of cultural motifs , essentialism, superficial exoticism, caricature, etc. Semperoper Dresden could do better than this to serve its various stakeholders; Zed said.

Rajan Zed also urged the Prime Minister of the Free State of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, to seriously address this issue of cultural stereotypes in the Semperoper Dresden.

Zed suggested to Semperoper Dresden’s artistic director Peter Theiler and general manager Wolfgang Rothe that they reevaluate its systems and procedures and send its executives for cultural sensitivity training so that such inappropriate things do not creep in in the future.

Like many others, Hindus also consider ballet as one of the revered art forms that offers richness and depth. But we are well into the 21st century now, and “La Bayadère”, which was first presented in Saint Petersburg (Russia) in 1877, is long awaited for a final retirement from the world stage; emphasizes Rajan Zed.

Semperoper Dresden has announced the presentation of “La Bayadère” (by Aaron S. Watkin), which he describes as “opulent oriental ballet”, in two acts on February 15, 17, 19, 21, 26 and March 05, 2023 Ticket prices range up to €74.

By Matthew Saari

Due to a 20-year-old design oversight, the city of Dresden finds itself between a rock and a hard place – or rather between a sewer pipe and a potentially hefty fine.

City Supervisor Paul Ferguson provided both city council and the public with an update on the city’s sewer district one, located in Huletts Landing, at Monday’s monthly meeting.

Ferguson said with a grant in place as well as a Community Bank loan, he would contact LaBella Associates, a Rochester-based engineering firm with offices across the state, to “get things done.”

“This is my next step moving forward,” he said.

In a follow-up call Tuesday afternoon, Ferguson explained the conundrum.

Dresden has two sewer districts, both at Huletts Landing. The first has about 86 connected households. The second district has 26. Both operate similarly in that sewage is discharged from homes to grinder pump stations, which then pump the sewage to the Huletts Golf Course.

“The golf course has a storage tank underneath,” Ferguson said.

Once the storage tank reaches capacity, Doran Brothers, a septic tank disposal company based in Fair Haven, Vermont, pumps out the sludge and disposes of it.

The problem, Ferguson explained, is that a 20-foot section of the pipe that carries the sewage is above ground, connected to a small wooden bridge.

“They should have put it under the bridge,” Ferguson said, adding that the reason the line wasn’t buried was because the town fathers deemed it too expensive at the time.

“It was a $7,000 option 20 years ago,” he said.

Over the past few years, beaver dams upstream of the bridge have failed and subsequently released large deluges of water and stones onto the bridge and sewer pipe.

So far the pipe has withstood the machinations of beavers, but the question now is “for how long?”

If the pipe breaks, its smelly contents will be dumped in the immediate area – including Lake George – which results in significant fines from the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

“I don’t even want to know what it would cost,” Ferguson said.

Fortunately, the city secured a $25,000 grant from the state to begin an engineering study of the project as well as a $200,000 loan from the Community Bank that will go towards this sewer project as well as another involving the snaking of cameras in sewer lines, checking the integrity of Huletts Landing’s sewer infrastructure, which Ferguson says dates back to the early 1980s.

Story by News Reporter: Shannon Taylor

All the candidates for mayor of Dresden showed up at the welcome meeting in Dresden at the Purple Iris to answer citizens’ questions. Current Dresden Mayor Jeff Washburn and mayoral candidates Brandi George, Mike Vernon and Lyndal Dilday were all in attendance.

Dresden resident April Lieberman asked if the candidates would be willing to accept a debate co-hosted by media organizations in Weakley County. All of the candidates agreed that a debate would be a great idea and that they would ask Washburn to speak to Weakley County Mayor Jake Bynum about moderating the debate. More details on the upcoming debate will follow.

Dresden resident and news reporter Shannon Taylor asked the contestants what was the most important thing Dresden needed right now.

George replied “the town desperately needs to be put back together. We have a lot of divisions in our city right now. A lot of people are not getting along right now, not growing and developing. We need to bring people together again. The citizens of Dresden must care about Dresden.

Washburn replied that he agreed with George regarding the split. “It really showed during the tornado. People got mad at each other, and friends got mad at each other, and family got mad at each other, and that is a problem that needs to be solved. I think a broader solution to what we’re looking at is to find jobs. Jobs that pay a living wage. Jobs that have benefits and that will keep people here and attract people in Dresden to build homes and start businesses here. That’s going to be a key thing to do.

Dilday said, “We have to put it all together.”

Vernon agreed with everyone and said, “I don’t think you’re going to find us too far on some topics. I also think we need to do a better job with the city when it comes to disseminating information. If no one knows what is happening, the citizens themselves must also intervene to be able to find out what is happening. We don’t have that flow of information here. People are starting to make up their own stories and you will hear more bad than good.

Resident Chase Kesterson asked, “What is the most important trait a politician should show when governing for the people?

Vernon replied “Honesty. If you don’t have a track record of how honest you’ve been and shown it, people won’t trust you. You have to earn the public’s trust, otherwise they won’t want to help you build.

Dilday said “transparency”.

George said “integrity. You have to do the right thing when you think no one is watching. If you don’t do what you know is right, you can’t live honestly and be trusted to lead a community.

Kesterson asked, “If elected, what steps will you take to improve the community?

George said, “transparency of information. The time when our meetings are open to the public is generally not readily available or posted in a timeframe when people will actually attend meetings. The information of our elected officials is not available at the Town Hall. City ordinances not readily available or how the city operates. This information must be available. I would also like to see programs available for families – there is not much to do for families and children in Dresden – and this needs to be kept low cost or free because we don’t have the economy to support that right now.”

Washburn said: ‘It’s going to take us a year or two to get back in one direction, but the good news is our sales tax was even higher than budgeted for this year and our property taxes are low – the next year is going to be the telltale, but I predict our sales tax will even exceed what it is this year. Property taxes will also likely increase because many people are building back better. Washburn also said he’s a big fan of sports for kids, but would like to see other things for kids who don’t do those things.

Vernon said “we want more programs. Programs for young people and seniors. We want programs for young people to grow and stay in the community, but at the same time, we can’t just ignore the elderly.

Kesterson asked, “what’s the town’s biggest concern?”

Washburn said: “The fact that we might start to die and we need to keep looking forward instead of stagnating. We have to have some growth in the industry if we want to keep people here when they graduate from high school.

Dilday said: “Jobs. Rebuild.

The other candidates agreed on the need for programs for seniors and young people as well as job growth.

The candidates all plan to set a date and time for the debate which they believe will take place in September or October. More information about this will be available soon.

Quality Detasseling Contractors (QDC) is set to hire over 100 corn detachers and managers in Wallaceburg, Dresden and surrounding areas this summer.

Mike Scollard, owner of the business, says it’s similar to last year and there are opportunities to earn money for spotters and executives.

Good news this season is that all COVID-19 safety protocols have been lifted.

This means everyone can return to normal in terms of seating and masking etc.

“Anyone who chooses to wear a mask certainly can, but it’s not mandatory at this time,” Scollard said.

“If any protocols are reintroduced before or during secondment season, we will follow them.”

Another good news for workers this year is that wage rates have risen again.

There’s also a higher year-end salary and more travel time allotted.

The minimum wage this season has been increased to $14.10 an hour for those under 18 and $15 an hour for those 18 and older.

“The steady increase in minimum wage rates should encourage young people to come to work and be able to earn more money this summer,” Scollard said, adding that these were just the minimum hourly rates.

“We will continue our higher compensation programs for experienced workers and those who come in to do the work for us every day.”

Scollard added that there are also opportunities for leadership positions.

“As students gain experience, they can start training and leading others, and also get a pay raise,” he said.

“For many young people, this is their first real leadership position. And it’s valuable experience to have for other jobs. Whether you’re new to the secondment or have some experience, the higher pay, bonuses and leadership opportunities really reward ambitious young workers.

Untanglers must be at least 13 years old to register and animators must be at least 17-18 years old and have at least two years of untangling experience.

QDC also hires many local young adults and adults for supervisory and bus driving positions.

“There’s a wide variety of jobs that need to be filled in order to have a successful secondment season,” Scollard said.

The planting of the crop went well this spring.

Although exact detachment dates depend on growing conditions by July, it could start a little earlier than normal this year.

“The secondment usually starts around mid-July, but this season could start the week before,” Scollard said.

“For anyone interested in coming to work this year and planning a vacation, it would be best to take it in very early July or around mid-August.”

Although the weather plays an important role in how the season unfolds, a typical day lasts six to eight hours.

“In hot weather, it’s better to wrap things up a bit earlier,” Scollard said.

“It also helps motivate young people to come back the next day too.”

QDC has six pick-up points and numerous buses operating throughout the region, including Bothwell and Thamesville, so there is one near everyone, Scollard added.
