Improv Night and Mermaid Princess Tea to support Live Oak Conservatory

As a student in Esprit Herbert's improv class at Live Oak Conservatory, 15-year-old Christopher Alexander feels that he has learned a lot more than acting skills from his experience in the class, which teaches the art of improv; a dramatic artform described in a Live Oak press release as "the activity of making or doing something not planned beforehand, using whatever can be found. Improvisation in the performing arts is a very spontaneous performance without specific or scripted preparation."

The forgotten battle that started a war. This is how Bill Gruber, park manager of The Dade Battlefield Historic State Park, describes Dade's Battle of 1835; a pivotal battle in American history that will be reenacted Jan. 4 and 5 at the Dade Battlefield Historic State Park.

"What I hope people will take away from this reenactment is a real appreciation of Florida history and American history," said Gruber. "Many history buffs never have heard of this battle, let alone the general public."
