Quarry Dance lX Trailer is here and it’s 60 seconds

Windhover Performing Arts Center announces this 60 second trailer for Quarry Dance lX for you to view here below. The 30-minute film is still being edited, and original music is being composed for the film now by Russ Gershon.

In July 2020, Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre was in residence (safely) at Windhover, bringing two dancers at a time from New York to create solos and duets at three private Cape Ann Quarries. Boston based videographer Anders Johnson filmed the dancers from floats and boats in the quarry waters in order to capture unusual angles. The stunning results will be shown on the Windhover website via You Tube in early September. www.Windhover.org   So stay tuned.

The Quarry Dances were born from a vision of Ina Hahn, Windhover’s founding Director, whose goal was to marry the art of dance with the pristine granite landscapes of the magical quarries of Cape Ann.

Beware of another scam

Just received this email from someone who I thought was legit, of course I would never do this.  Checked her email and her legit email is different than what was sent.

Sorry for bothering you with this email, I need to get a Google play gift card of $200 but I can’t do this now cause I’m not feeling well and I tried purchasing online but unfortunately no luck with that. Can you get it from any store around you or online ? I’ll pay back as soon as I get better.
Await your soonest response.

This email scam is not new but seems to be resurfacing again.  Always be wary of anyone asking you if you could do them a favor.



Great Marsh Brewing Company

We had a really delicious and relaxing dinner on the deck of the Great Marsh Brewing Company in Essex on Tuesday night.  The food was delicious…..I forgot to snap a photo of the brussels sprouts before we teared into them…and they were spectacular.  Our party ordered burgers, cobb salads, pork tacos, Essex fried clams, fish and chips, and more.  While I’ve enjoyed their beer before, we opted for one cold cocktail instead…a blackberry margarita…since it had been in the 90s all day.  The view is wonderful too.   While we sat on the deck, others were sitting off to the side at tables under their tent where you can order from the take-out window as well.   It’s a great place to sit with friends or family.
