Haley McElle Farr is looking for support for her newly-formed Muse Theatrix, dedicated to teaching dance, gymnastics, yoga, cheerleading, and more, for children, teens and adults.

The organization is currently aimed at providing dance classes and after-school activities for children in kindergarten through high school. Kinder classes have already started, and Farr said she has had more than 50 youngsters in her dance classes, temporarily being held in the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall.

However, a more permanent home has been found in a portion of the building at 1240 Chetco Ave., where arrangements have been made to occupy 2500 square feet set up as two rooms, with plans to broaden the program to include yoga classes, acting classes, Tango and other ballroom dances, clog combo, singing and tumbling.

Muse Theatrix has received a Public Benefit With Members status from the Oregon Secretary of State Corporation Division, and has filed for a nonprofit corporation status. It will be run as a nonprofit corporation with a board of directors consisting of five adult members and one student director. Currently, the officers of the establishment, in addition to Farr who serves as vice president, are Bryan Skidmore, president; Claire Willard, secretary; and Terrie Noller, treasurer.

Farr indicated that their vision for the future of the group is to provide a center for teens, and a place for members of the community to gather and support each other. Other listed planned activities include pre-ballet, country night for swing and line dance, jazz, a workshop for those interested in theatrical production such as, lighting, sound, costumes, directing and character building, plus bands, dancing and late-night java.

Farr said, "Friday nights will be dedicated for the teens in the community. Ages 13 to 18 will always be welcome to karaoke, play music, jam sessions, movies, games, and, of course, food, with staff and chaperones, with a ratio of one-to-six, always present."

She also said a coffee and snack bar is planned for 8 to 11 p.m., with a $5 cover charge.

The premises will be available for other activities and private parties, with a modest rental charge, she said.

Such a center cannot be run without sufficient funds, and the planners are asking for help.

"We are asking for support from the community," Farr said. "The center will be a nonprofit organization and your help is appreciated."

In addition to cash, she listed a number of other needed donations, including a refrigerator, mirrors for a dance studio, tables and chairs, sink and cabinets, piano and/or musical instruments, children's dance shoes (new or used), "dress up" clothing and fun accessories, sound and lighting equipment.

A copy of Muse Theatrix business plan, director's resumes, and references are available upon request. For information or to request a pickup of donations, call Farr at (541) 251-4027.

  • Iran wants OPEC to pave way for its extra oil production when sanctions lifted
    Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) should prepare for extra Iranian crude production when Western sanctions on Tehran are lifted, Iran's oil minister was quoted on Tuesday by state news agency IRNA as saying. "We expect the members of OPEC to pave the ground for (an) increase of Iran's oil production that will reach global markets when sanctions are lifted," Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said during a meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart Asdrubal Chavez in Tehran, the agency reported.
  • Oil prices dip as U.S. stockpiles seen rising
    Oil prices fell on Tuesday on expectations of another rise in U.S. stockpiles and as Saudi Arabia keeps output near record highs, but prices remained near a 2015 peak reached last week. Crude prices have climbed around 16 percent since the start of April due to mounting concern over conflict in Yemen, with the U.S. navy saying on Monday it had sent an aircraft carrier and a guided-missile cruiser into waters near the country. Brent crude for June delivery was down 47 cents at $62.98 a barrel by 0706 GMT (8.06 a.m. BST), after settling flat on Monday. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski said on Monday she would introduce legislation this year to allow U.S. crude exports, saying the Obama administration should not dare lift sanctions on Iran before scrapping the U.S. crude export ban.
  • Gold holds below $1,200 due to firmer dollar, equities
    Gold remained below the key $1,200 level on Tuesday, adding to overnight losses, as a rally in global equities and a firmer dollar dented the metal's appeal as a safe haven. Spot gold was down 0.2 percent to $1,194 an ounce at 0657 GMT after losing 0.7 percent on Monday. "Precious markets declined, as market participants pared back safe-haven exposure in gold," said ANZ analyst Victor Thianpiriya. Athens is in negotiations with its eurozone partners and the International Monetary Fund over reforms required to unlock remaining bailout funds.
