Jacques d'Amboise Makes Us Feel Like Dancin' 

Jacques d'Amboise, longtime principal dancer at New York City Ballet and founder of the National Dance Institute, is heading to town to impart some of his ballet wisdom on TRICA's tiny tikes. After the 75-year-old met TRICA founder Jon Swarthout at a teacher-training program in New York City, d'Amboise agreed to jet out to Boise to help Swarthout raise money.

D'Amboise will lead a community dance class for kids ages 6-12 on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 24. Later that evening, he will also host Encounter with Dance: An Evening with Jacques d'Amboise at 7 p.m. at the Linen Building. The two-hour program will feature stories, video clips and a number of opportunities for audience participation. Judging by the awards heaped on the 1984 documentary based on d'Amboise's life, He Makes Me Feel Like Dancin'--an Oscar, six Emmys and a Peabody--the program should be well-worth the $25 admission ticket.

Community Dance Class, 10-11:15 a.m., $15. All-ages presentation, 7 p.m., $25 adults, $15 children under 12, Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. To register or purchase tickets, call 208-344-2220.
