Christopher Columbus: His Successes and FailuresChristopher Columbus: His Successes and Failures
Tuesday, February 12, 3:30pm - 5:00pm

The spherical shape of the earth was declared by Aristotle already in the 4th century BCE.  The possibility of sailing west from Europe to India was mentioned already in the 3rd century BCE.  But, as we all know, the first person to actually undertake this daring voyage was Christopher Columbus.  And Columbus did it because of what a contemporary called his "magnificent and great desire to find a way to where the spices grow."  In other words, he did it because he was seeking riches and fame.  What Columbus did achieve and failed to achieve, and what kind of fame and riches he won by his efforts are the subjects to be addressed by Robert Hajdu.

Dr. Robert Hajdu holds a bachelor’s degree from the City College of New York, a Ph.D. in history from Princeton University and a J.D. from Columbia Law School.  He taught history at CCNY during the 1970s, then practiced real estate law in New York City for more than thirty years, fifteen of them with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.  Since retirement from the law, he has been teaching history at the Collegium for Lifelong Learning at Westchester Community College.  He is also the author of Hungarian Goulash: A Historical Memoir.

This program is free and open to the entire community. Refreshments are served at 3:30, the presentation begins at 4:00pm

Wednesdays at 1:30pm; Fridays at 1:45pm

The Rye Arts Center is committed to making the arts accessible to those with varying abilities and backgrounds.  These specialized classes stimulate mind, body and emotion in an enjoyable and safe environment. They offer participants the opportunity to learn from professionally trained dancers about stretching and strengthening muscles, with an emphasis on enhancing physical awareness and grace through modern, ballet and folk dance forms.

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms. Free.
