Kaseberg kids plant trees

Students from Kaseberg Elementary School in Roseville helped plant 31 trees in Kaseberg Park in celebration of Arbor Day on March 11. The kids planted maples, tupelos, crape myrtles and cherry trees. They had assistance from Roseville City Councilwoman Pauline Roccucci, Roseville Parks and Recreation Commissioner Scott Alvord, city of Roseville Urban Forester Michael Neumann, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Audrey Husking and CALFIRE representative Russ Henly.

Woodcreek High School hosts ‘So You Think You Can Dance’

Woodcreek High School’s top dancer for 2013 will be selected in a school-wide competition that mimics the television show “So You Think You Can Dance.” The competition begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in the school’s cafeteria, 2551Woodcreek Oaks Blvd. The winner will be selected during the final round, starting at 7 p.m. Friday, April 5. The top dancer gets $100.

Here’s how it works: Student competitors pay a $5 audition fee and are then asked to show off their best dance skills in a one-minute solo. Performances will be evaluated by a panel of judges, which includes a host from “Good Day Sacramento.”

Judges will comment on each performance and, once everyone has competed, will announce five students who will advance to a final round. These finalists will pull a dance style from a hat and be paired with a choreographer. After a short rehearsal on Friday, April 5, finalists will perform for a live audience who will cast their votes. Tickets for the April 4 event, available at the door, are $3. Tickets for the April 5 final are $5.
