Many of the hundreds of hours logged by Greensboro’s Elsewhereians in preparation for this Saturday’s Carnivale (see story on page 40) were logged by this week’s Page Three model, Talena Sanders, who is not only the collective’s media coordinator but will be one of the performers, busting out tapdancing moves she hadn’t used in years. “I’m re-learning,” she says. While rehearsing for her Saturday set in front of her crew, she called on 12 years of childhood lessons and a little bit of improvisation. “People really freaked out,” she says. The elsewhere Carnivale is open for families until 5 p.m., and then adult fun begins at 8 p.m. It’s something you’ll have to see to believe.
