Bowling, Ballroom and Easter Madness

Alaska's LGBT communities are holding events all over the state this week: Cosmic Bowling in Juneau, Gay Ballroom Dance classes in Fairbanks, a choir forming at the Mat-Su Center, and two Easter events in Anchorage - "Millinery Madness" at Myrna's, and Easter Sunday at MCC. 

SEAGLA Cosmic Bowling Night at the Juneau Bowling Center, April 11, 8-10 p.m.
Cosmic Bowling for community members and their friends. Both men and women are invited to join us at the Juneau Bowling Center, 608 W. Willoughby Ave. Come early for a meet-n-greet in the bar area. Bowling starts at 8 pm and is timed for two hours, so don't be late. Four lanes have been reserved. SEAGLA

Gay Ballroom Dance Classes in Fairbanks, Tuesdays April 14-May 5, 7:15-9 p.m
Ballroom dance classes for lesbians and gays. The Fox Trot, Swing and Waltz classes will be taught by Kurt Byers and Terri Babers. Each class is two 45 minute sessions of instruction. The cost is $60 per person for the set, or $50 for UAF students, paid at the first session.

"We suspect there is a big unmet desire among the Fairbanks gay community for solid training in ballroom and swing dancing," wrote Kurt. "That's a desire we intend to fulfill in a fun and congenial atmosphere."

The dance classes will be held April 14, 21, 28 and May 5 from 7:15-9 p.m. at the Artisan's Courtyard, 1755 Westwood Way, off College Road next to Toy Quest. RSVP to Kurt

Harmony Choir at the Mat-Su LGBT Community Center, Mondays 6 - 7 p.m.
Harmony Community Choir is a new a capella group rehearsing at the Center on Monday evenings. "We need singers," said Talyne. "Must be able to take direction and at least be able to carry a tune."

The Center is open M-F 5-8 p.m., except Wed. 6-8, at 415 South Bailey, in the Church of the Covenant, in Palmer. The Wednesday social meets at 5 p.m. in the Vagabond Blues coffee shop. Mat-Su Center

Millinery Madness in Anchorage, April 11, dinner at 6 p.m, show at 8 p.m.
Emperor 36 Michael and Empress 36 Paula extend a warm invitation to The Imperial Court's Easter show "Millinery Madness." Join us for dinner, a 50/50 raffle, an egg hunt, an Easter bonnet contest and a wonderful drag show. Come out and help raise money for charity. Mad Myrna's and ICOAA 

Easter Sunday with MCC Anchorage, April 12, 2 p.m.
Metropolitan Community Church of Anchorage is hosting a special Easter Worship Service, a time of rejoicing, celebration and worship, followed by a potluck. The service will be interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing. 

"Our new place of worship is proving to be very exciting," said Rev. Norman Van Manen. "The colorful glass windows allow light to enter. The seating causes us to sit a little closer together making the music swell. The warm welcome of St. Mary's Episcopal Church is greatly appreciated. There are exciting things happening at MCC Anchorage." 

Sunday services begin at 2 p.m. and are held in the A-Frame Chapel located at St. Mary's Episcopal Church, 2222 East Tudor Road. MCC Anchorage
