Summer is a good time to try something completely new--like, say, flying. OK, the teachers at Fly-by-Night Dance Theater can't promise that you'll sprout wings by the end of their Aerial Dance Bootcamp. But they can teach you basic trapeze skills, tension-releasing techniques, and strength-building moves that will benefit even your earthbound dancing. All classes (July 16, 18, and 20) are led by Julie Ludwick, director of the Brooklyn, NY-based company, and require no prior aerial dance experience. See www.flybynightdance.org. * The Margaret Jenkins Dance Company in San Francisco announced that Tere O'Connor will be its 2013 CHIME Across Borders chair. Each year, this mentorship program, one of several that MJDC runs (see "No Right Answers," May), invites one nationally recognized choreographer to mentor a group of local dancemakers. To be one of those mentees, you must live in the Bay Area and apply by Aug. 1. See www.mjdc.org/chime/borders.
