DANCE | "Bodies in Motion" 

The Central Library is hosting a free event featuring Daystar, a Rochester-based company that educates and entertains with the contemporary Native American dance-drama. Rosalie Jones, who was born on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana and earned a master's degree in dance from the University of Utah, founded Daystar in 1980. It is the first such dance company comprised of all-native performers. Daystar specializes in portraying indigenous stories such as "Tales of Napi Old Man" (Blackfeet), "Wolf: A Transformation" (Anishinabe), and more. Audience participation is encouraged.

Daystar will perform at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 9, at Central Library, 115 South Avenue. The program will last approximately an hour. Admission is free and is for all ages. For more information, visit or call 428-8150.
