Dance your way through the decades



Ovation Theatre Company will take you "Dancing through the Decades" from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday at the 20th Century in Oakley (3021 Madison Road). The $15 donation benefits Ovation and includes dance lessons, a silent auction, refreshments and hits from the 1940s, '50s, '60s, '70s and right on up to the millennium. Call 369-1544 or e-mail ovationtheatrecompany@yahoo.com.

• Also on Friday, Creative Bliss: The Rooftop Session will raise funds for Tha Blast, the urban arts and culture festival slated for Oct. 4 at SSNOVA (and held in conjunction with 20/20 II Festival.)

Creative Bliss runs 6-11 p.m. on the rooftop of Fourth and Plum (241 W. Plum St.) You're invited to groove to the jazzy house beats of deejay King James, watch avant-garde flicks by the pool and view the work of local artist Cedric Cox and the Cincinnati skyline by night. Donation: $10.

• Brush up your Shakespeare with Cincinnati Shakespeare Festival, which celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sept. 21 starting at 5 p.m. at the Indian Hill home of Ginger and David Warner. The posh affair (ticket: $150) promises dinner as well as music and merriment throughout the evening. Dress is "as you like it." Information: Rebecca Bowman, 381-2288.
