  • Movement: Exploring leadership through the art of tango 5:30pm to 8:30pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts Third Floor, Grand Hall 520 E Main, Muncie, IN 47305
    Cost: $25 per person

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts, Shafer Leadership Academy, and Harmony Dance Group will partner this spring for a unique leadership workshop through tango dancing. The workshop titled, Movement: Exploring leadership through the art of tango, will be on Tuesday, February 21 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Cornerstone Center for the Arts in the Grand Hall.

    This three-hour long program is designed to increase an individual’s understanding of leadership, following, and two way communications through the use of tango dancing as a metaphor and teaching tool. The workshop is not a dance class but a lesson in leadership through the fundamentals of the art form. Participants will leave with a better concept of leadership which they can apply to their business and personal lives.

    In addition, participants will walk away with a clear understanding of the difference between management and leadership, a recognition of the two-way nature of communication in all forms of leader and follower connections, tools to diagnose breakdowns in communication between leaders and followers, and active advice on how to re-establish trust and confidence in team members and to build up communication within a group.

    This workshop is open to anyone seeking to improve their personal and business relationships. The workshop is $25 per person to attend and is limited to 20 participants. Registration is available online at shaferleadership.com/movement/. For more information or questions about the workshop, call Shafer Leadership Academy at 765-748-0403.

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on May 4, 2017 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Leon Crosby. The show titled “Synesthesia” which means to see sound in color, is an exploration of art as a representation of musical expression.

    Each vibrant painting in the collection was inspired by a piece of music and captures the feelings emoted by that particular song. Using techniques incorporating watercolor, gradients, and multiple stylings Crosby created colorful emotions that spur the imagination. To allow the viewer to appreciate the symbiosis of the artwork paired with song, QR codes and headphones will be available the evening of the opening allowing participants to experience the musical inspiration of each painting using just their cell phone and QR scanner.

    The opening reception will take place from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of May.

His biggest inspirations come from Japanese art, American Graffiti, and comic book graphics. He has received both formal and informal instruction from the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo and regularly displays and sells his art throughout the Muncie community. In addition to teaching at Cornerstone, Leon has volunteered his time at Sutton Elementary and has several private lesson students.
