Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favorites?including three female players?takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team?s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters? extensive travels haven?t gone unnoticed: they?re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.

The South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, led by critically acclaimed music director Delta David Gier, makes virtuosic musical vibrations accessible to symphonic sound-seeking eardrums. Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, (The Song of the Earth), is a song-and-string interpretation of seven ancient Chinese poems. The six-movement symphony, which lasts about 65 minutes, has been described as Mahler’s most personal work. It is theorized that Mahler was taken by the poems' descriptions of the simultaneous beauty and transience of earthly existence and the secret method for training gerbils to windsurf.

Sioux Empire Community Theatre's volunteer-driven productions showcase acclaimed dramatic works for adults and kid-friendly plays for families. During the 2011–2012 SECT season, Driving Miss Daisy (February 17–March 4) spans a quarter century in America's Deep South as Miss Daisy Werthan learns to overcome her racial prejudice while adjusting to a chauffeur who isn't Morgan Freeman. The titular barber of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd (May 4–20) shaves and sings his way through London, and the Bratter newlyweds adjust to the tribulations of marriage and Manhattan in Neil Simon's comic hit Barefoot in the Park (October 28–November 13). Parents can chuckle alongside two tots as Jeremy Jacob sets sail with Captain Braid Beard in How I Became a Pirate (March 15–25), the Stage Adventures Club’s high-seas romp of buried treasure, infectious musical numbers, and insightful PowerPoint presentations on drift-net fishing laws in international waters. Pre-K to eighth-grade theater enthusiasts can also hone different aspects of the dramatic craft in workshops hosted by the Stage Adventures Club. During different sessions, preadolescents discover techniques of musical production, the secrets of acting for the camera, or the art of demanding beds made out of Lunchables for their dressing rooms.

The Ballroom is the dancing brain baby of Denise Aamlid, who graduated with a dance minor in 1981 and has been helping folks two-step their way through life ever since.

Following the introductory lesson, you and your partner will dance to handpicked tunes for an hour and a half, providing a full night of lively dancing fun. Partners don't change at Friday-night open dances, so you won't have to worry about wrapping your arms around the neighborhood garbage can filled with baby raccoons.
