Churubusco Karate offering classes at Center Stage PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 07 March 2012 21:13

Since the change in ownership at Center Stage Dance Academy in January, the new owners and Scott Smith (owner/instructor) of Churubusco Karate, had talked about the idea of opening more doors for more people with both schools combining.  Churubusco Karate has been in operation since May of 2011. Smith is offering self-defense classes along with a strong cardio workout for both kids and adults.
“I started out with four kids since the move, and now have had as many as 16 students (both adult and kids) at one time. The added people definitely help with the fun and the energy, everyone pushes each other a little harder each time,” said Scott.
The classes are held on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for the self defense/ cardio course and then a more intense cardio workout afterwards till 7:15 p.m. (depending on how many students show up).
The ages start out at seven years old (some younger do take it from him, depending on the child) to adult. For more information, call Scott at (260) 416-4310).

High School team coached by Mrs. Shambaugh

What do the Eiffel Tower and a star’s Broadway Red Carpet both have in common? They lack lighting. It was the mission of Dr. Photon (Robby Pope) and two traveling helpful scientists (Avery Dirr and Jenna Shambaugh) to restore lighting through the use of solar power and a prototype using computer chips and team created software to do just that. The team members travel to the Eiffel Tower and a French Café with Rachel Jones and Brandi Herron in attendance. They also travel to Hollywood and visit a movie star – Caitie Eakins. Without the help of the Northern Lights in Alaska to recharge the solar capacitor – it would be a dark, dreary skit. Instead – this high school DI team coached by Rachele Shambaugh found their way to First Place and the spotlight at the DI Regional Tournament held on Saturday at the IU Kokomo campus. They are on their way in April to the State DI competition to be held in Noblesville.  This team also received a very special award called the Renaissance Award to recognize their outstanding costumes, spectacular script, incredible backdrops, and fabulous performance!

Coming soon to  DI theatres near you… “DIserted.”  Starring DI members: Madison Bieber, Cheyenne Conner, Brandon Goepfrich, Valerie Pope, Kaley Scott, Brittney Shambaugh, and Kaleb Walker.  DIserted premiered at DI Regionals this past Saturday in Kokomo.  It was described as “action packed” and “horrifying.” The DI team portrayed Spanish Flamenco dancers and Australian citizens who were part of a plane crash and were then stranded in the Australian Outback. During the time in the Outback, they learned about each other’s culture and were “attacked” by a wicked red kangaroo protecting her joey. The team will next take their show on the road to the DI State Competition on April 21. The team is coached by Dena Pope.



Junior High Team coached by Rob TomlinsonChurubusco Junior High had two DI teams compete Saturday, March 3 at the I.U. Campus in Kokomo. Both teams did very well but did not advance to the State competition.

(Left to right in back row are Sheldon Shearer, Emilee Gaerte, Davis Sturgis, and Seth Brown; front row,  Alissa Edsall, Vincent Johnson, and Mr. Tomlinson.)
Have a case of “Bieber Fever”? Then you would love the middle level Coming Attractions problem-solution involving “On Tour with Justin Bieber! The Movie Trailer.” Team members were; Sheldon Shearer playing Justin Bieber, himself ; Alissa Edsall and Emilee Gaerte playing screaming, hugging fans; Davis Sturgis playing the narrator; Vincent Johnson playing the body guard; and Seth Brown as an interviewer and the technology dude. Their movie trailer involved Justin Bieber being on tour in Australia with some special effects of a cat riding a car and a bush. They presented an awesome show for the audience to enjoy. This team was coached by Rob Tomlinson.


Junior High team coached by Mrs. Mast and Mrs. Leeuw(Left to right in back row are Mrs. Mast, Abby Stanford, Kaylee Leeuw, and Grant Sturgis; front row, Randy Johnson, Mrs. Leeuw, and Alex King.)
Mrs. Mast and Mrs. Leeuw coached a middle level team in the improvisational problem called “News to Me.” Grant Sturgis, Abby Stanford, Alex King, Kaylee Leeuw, and Randy Johnson were teammates for this challenge. Their problem involved combining the “8 Babies Behind Bars” (Newspaper Headline) story with information from a story about the “Drone 2.0 Phone Coming Out in May.” After four minutes of planning they were thrown the OMG-“All team members were zombies”- and given a minute to incorporate this glitch into the skit. The next five minutes were a fun time where they performed their skit for the audience. The team did a great job.

Ice FishermenWinter or what there was of it, is just about over. But, these brave souls still found ice on Blue Lake to fish last Sunday. There was enough ice in Horseshoe Bend to support at least a dozen fisherman while a boat fished the open water near them. The temperatures have been unseasonably mild this winter with 60 degrees predicted for this week. (photos by allman)
