The Universe According to Galileo Show

"We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves."
~Galileo Galilei

The Universe According to Galileo Show™ is a unique interactive show with the Maestro himself. With the "help" of his house maid Marina Gamba, Galileo entertains & discusses the fundamentals of the budding science of astronomy of his time. (Circa: 1608-1611.) With the ever popular, Planets on a Stick™, Galileo asks for volunteers from the audience to become a living model of the known universe based on the theories of Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus, as well as, his discoveries made with the telescope. By adding a touch of wit, improvisation and a little Italian Commedia Del' Arte flavor, you'll not only be entertained, but have a good time learning something as well.

The show is somewhat family orientated (PG-13), the show is versatile and flexible to accommodate for a children's audience and adult audiences. The show can be done with as little as a few people for an up close and personal show, to a full audience and everything in between.

Kyla's School of Scottish Highland Dance
Scottish Highland dancing is the embodiment of the Scottish spirit. The traditional Highland dances tell stories about the proud Scottish Highland people centuries ago, who fought fiercely for their lands, their freedom and their families. Through dance, Scottish legends have persevered through the centuries.

Scottish Highland dancing is a sport, in the most literal sense of the word. Dancers must show strength, agility, endurance and control over even the tiniest muscle movements. Dancers who have been perfecting their art for years are in fantastic physical shape.
Scottish Highland dancing is inclusive of all cultures. Many of our dancers have no Scottish ancestry, but sought out lessons after watching our dancers perform in the community. The allure of Highland dance is timeless and not bound by bloodlines. The skirl of the pipes appeals to everyone, but few have the ability to translate those haunting notes into the ancient stories.

Devon Yip (currently third in the US) and Pamela Faljean are the two stage dancers for the weekend at the Sonora Celtic Faire.

All types of Celtic dogs and
The Glen of Imaal Terrier are Coming

Among the many of its treasures that Ireland has shared with the world, are several beloved breeds of dogs. Among them are four beguiling terriers and perhaps least known of them is the Glen of Imaal Terrier. It has been described variously as a rough-and-ready Sealyham, a miniature Irish Wolfhound, or a Soft Coated Wheaten on short legs, etc. While these descriptions might allude to an aspect of the Glen of Imaal’s profile, they ultimately miss the point. The Glen isn’t a rough-and-ready or miniature anything. It predates many of the breeds to which it is likened and is a truly unique and remarkable creature beloved by most everyone fortunate enough to come into contact with one.
The history of the breed finds its roots in the starkly beautiful Glen of Imaal in County Wicklow. Like its three Irish cousins--the Kerry Blue Terrier, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, and the Irish Terrier--the Glen of Imaal Terrier was initially bred to rid the home and farm of vermin, and hunt fox and badger. The European badger weighs in at 40 lbs and the Glen was tough and strong enough to go to ground and dispatch the vermin soundlessly.
According to legend the Glen of Imaal also has a unique task which it was expressly designed for: it was a turnspit dog. The turnspit was a large wheel which, when paddled by the dog, would turn the spit over the hearth--a canine-propelled rotisserie, if you will. The Glen’s highly individualized bowed front legs and powerful hindquarters were ideally suited for this. For several hundred years, these hearty dogs performed their tasks unnoticed by all except those who treasured them. With the advent of dog shows in the 19th century, the breed began to emerge into the public eye. In 1934, the Glen of Imaal Terrier was given full recognition by the Irish Kennel Club. It was the third of the four Irish terrier breeds to be so acknowledged. The breed is now recognized by the Kennel Club of Great Britain, FCI, and several rare breed associations. In America the Glen was fully recognized by the American Kennel Club and entered the AKC Terrier Group in October 2004 though the hard efforts of members of the Glen of Imaal Terrier Club of America. There are 600-700 Glens registered in the United States.
