Tu Dance Center

TU Dance is an award-winning non-profit professional dance organization founded
in 2004 by Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands. The Minnesota-based company
reaches across dance styles, drawing on a broad range of dance
traditions from contemporary ballet to modern and traditional forms. TU
Dance’s work aims to reveal the connective power of dance, celebrating a
beautiful diversity on stage. In its first few seasons, TU Dance has
premiered a compelling repertory of new work by choreographer Uri Sands,
named as one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” for 2005, and recipient
of the inaugural 2005 Princess Grace Award in choreography. The company
has also premiered work by leading American choreographers such as
Camille Brown, Dwight Rhoden and Ronald K. Brown. Source: Creative Enterprise Zone, Kyle Mianulli

Bang Brewing Company

The Creative Enterprise Zone is quickly becoming a destination for
upstart microbreweries, and Bang Brewery at 2325 Capp Road is setting
the trend. With the official opening of
their taproom last month, Jay and Sandy Boss Febbo’s Bang Brewery
became the first of several planned breweries to open their doors in the
area. They are brewing delicious all organic beers in their circular
metal prefab building reminiscent of a grain bin. The CEZ-based firm
Alchemy Architects designed the energy efficient structure that allows
patrons to enjoy a freshly poured beer in the same room in which it was
brewed. Source: Creative Enterprise Zone, Kyle Mianulli

Midwest Floating Island

Midwest Floating Island BioHaven® systems provide a concentrated wetland
effect by utilizing a buoyant matrix mat made from 100% recycled
plastic and natural vegetation to mimic what occurs naturally in healthy
wetlands around the world. Source: Midwest Floating Island
There are lots of great photos at their Facebook page.

If you’ve been wondering what all the buzz is about here in St. Paul when it comes to the CREATIVE ENTERPRISE ZONE and Give & Take, tonight’s your chance to find out firsthand with a cold beverage in hand and a picnic blanket as your seat.

Every Give & Take CREATIVE ENTERPRISE ZONE happens in a different part of the neighborhood. Tonight’s event is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the outdoor space that is part of The Lyric on University Avenue and Hampden. The line up sounds like a lot of fun!

Details from Give & Take CREATIVE ENTERPRISE ZONE:

“There are amazing people all around you. It’s especially true in the
Creative Enterprise Zone. Come out and meet some of them in a fun and
creative environment. You never know the potential value of a single
connection until it’s made.




What do you know? What do you want to know? Give & Take uses these
simple questions to launch an interactive evening of presentation,
performances, and surprises in the Creative Enterprise Zone. It’s a
simple way to celebrate creativity and connect with others in your
community.

The event will feature three presentations and take place in and showcase the Creative Enterprise
Zone. Located mid-city between St. Paul and Minneapolis, and
traditionally home to makers of all kinds, the Creative Enterprise Zone
has the goal to be a recognized center
of creativity and enterprise, a place where more people make a living by
their creative capacities.

As all of the presenters will demonstrate,
the community that’s in the neighborhood now is dynamic, intriguing, and
surprising.
