Tip: Calibrate Your Monitor in Windows For Best Color Representation

I bought a new ultra book laptop and I was reminded that for the best color representation, you should calibrate your monitor. While perusing some of the websites that I frequent commonly, I noticed that the colors were a bit off…too yellowish green. Windows has a nice tool to calibrate your display and the following video shows you how to do so.

As for Mac users, I am at a loss as I am strictly a Windows guy. I suppose you’ll have to use google to figure out how to calibrate your Mac.

So, if you want to optimize your viewing enjoyment of this site and others, by all means calibrate your monitor!

Rochester Knightingales Dance Team Auditions on Saturday, Oct. 7

Rochester Knightingales dance team will hold auditions for the 2017-18 season on Saturday, Oct. 7 at Harro East Gym (400 Andrews St.). Candidates will have the opportunity to try out for one of the hottest dance teams in the National Lacrosse League from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Harro East aerobics room.

The Knightingales are dedicated women who are physically fit, talented in dance/cheer or promotional modeling who are able to present themselves in a professional manner. Because the Knightingales are influential role models to the youth in our communities, the team selects women who are committed to leading a healthy, productive lifestyle. In addition to performing at Knighthawks’ home games, the team supports community projects throughout the Greater Rochester area.

When attending auditions, please bring a professional resume, including related experience, a recent photo (photo will not be returned), and a valid license or passport. There is also a $20 non-refundable cash-only fee. Each dancer must follow the dress code provided by the Rochester Knightingales. Audition attire includes a sports bra or tank top, form-fitted shorts, nude tights or yoga pants/leggings, and sneakers or dance shoes. All individuals must have full hair and makeup (no ponytails), and no jewelry, except wedding or engagement rings.

Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED. Click here for the complete team eligibility guidelines and to register for tryouts

This year’s team will be under the direction of Emilie Schneider and Brenna Spencer. Emilie grew up in the town of Greece, where she first began taking dance classes. She is one of the veterans of the Knightingales as she enters her 13th season with the squad.

Brenna first began cheerleading and Irish dancing as a child and continued to study dance throughout high school and college. The Webster native was a member of the Nazareth dance team and the choreographer for the dance club. She began dancing professionally at age 18 and has been dancing and assisting with game-day direction for professional sports teams in Rochester, including the Raiders, Razorsharks, Lancers and Knighthawks.

The directors are looking to fill a variety of positions and are seeking women with personality and a willingness to learn. Knightingales participate in greetings, sales, team appearances, promotions, distributing giveaways, on-field performances, and in-stand dances.

“We created it because we saw there was a hole telling dancers’ stories and with all of the dance competition shows, we felt there was something lacking in the conversation… the dancers and choreographers. To that end, we started this series where we have a staple segments such as dance news, sharing a great dance video we’d like to shed some light on, featured guests and dance comedy segments with rotating segments like dance-specific cross training, dance fashion or dance history segments on a rotating basis.”
 
Guests to date have included:
•Brian Friedman (SYTYCD, The X-Factor, Britney Spears) 
•Tiffany Maher (VH1’s Hit The Floor, J.Lo) & Tony Bellissimo (Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake)
•Larsen Thompson (Pit Bull, Christina Aguilera, katy Perry, The Voice)
•The choreography team behind Magic Mike (as well ABDC and all-girl breaking crew members The Beat Freaks) Alison Faulk, Teresa Espinosa & Luke Broadlick (not part of the Beat Freaks because he’s a guy ;)
•Allison Holker (Dancing With The Stars, SYTYCD)
 
“…and coming up is Kevin Stea – the guy who has been at it for 25 years, has worked with everyone you could imagine, is an amazing person and is going to give some sage, great advice to the viewers. Plus the documentary that he’s in, Strike A Pose is coming out on Netflix next week. It follows the dancers from Madonna’s famed, Blonde Ambition tour 25 years later and is an amazing film on the lives of these dancers after the tour and how it impacted their lives moving forward.”
 
“We do dance history segments in the hopes of educating younger dancers about those who came before them and how their work impacted the dance world and the world at large. Our first segment in episode 1 was on Vincent Paterson (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cirque, The Birdcage) and our latest was on Gregory Hines.”
