Founded with the goal of bolstering childhood development via confidence- and fitness-boosting programs, Tricks Gymnastics, Dance, and Swim's team of instructors keeps kids of all ages active and engaged via a host of high-energy classes. The highly skilled and friendly crew works hard to foster a nurturing environment within each class, keeping a close eye on the kids while teaching them new skills via positive reinforcement and recognition of effort. All three locations offer dance classes that introduce preschool Baryshnikovs to the world of movement and grant school-aged pupils a chance to explore various styles ranging from ballet to jazz to ballroom hokey pokey.
Meanwhile, experienced coaches man gymnastics programs designed to combat inactivity and encourage healthy lifestyles. Young ones aged 0–5 burn excess energy and hone flexibility during Tumblebunny classes, and big kids build strength and character thanks to both noncompetitive and competitive programs. A variety of special events include date nights that enable parents to sneak off for an evening of fun while their progeny plays at the gym. The Folsom location further fortifies its kinetic curriculum with swim programs focused on teaching pupils the essentials of water safety and basic swimming techniques. Paddlers grouped into classes by age hop into the crystalline pool, splashing about in waters kept at a balmy 89 degrees to ward off loitering snowflakes.
During the all-ages Friday or Saturday ComedySportz show, expect to watch two teams of ComedySportz improvisers fight for laughs using scenes, games, and songs based on audience suggestions. Intended for ages 17 and up, the Thursday show, Mayhem, features three acts of improvised, unexpected juxtapositions and pre-funnied sketch comedy, holding audiences captive until the full ransom of laughter is paid and a Branson-bound aircraft provided.
Surrounded by a sea of tables drenched in red light, the central stage of Sacramento Punch Line presents a lineup of the country’s top touring comedians. For 20 years, the club has been canning the cackles of audiences, featuring sidesplitting stars such as D.L. Hughley, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock before they broke onto the national stage. With a first-come, first-served policy, audience members can arrive early at the intimate theater to snag a table close to the stage or the off-stage shepherd's hook. Before the show begins, servers whet laugh whistles by taking drink orders for beer, cocktails, soda, or sparkling water.
Between rounds of a custom four-course meal, the Dinner Detective?s guests set their well-fed brains to sussing out who among them is a murderer. Groups of up to 80 dine on appetizers of vegetable spring rolls and steamed potstickers with hoisin sauce, warming them up for a high-energy, comedic investigation led by skilled improv actors posing as detectives, audience members, and talkative teapots. As guests dine on entrees, such as broiled salmon with lemon-dill sauce or vegetable ravioli with artichoke pesto and fire-roasted tomatoes, additional murders happen and clues are revealed. The best sleuth in the audience receives an award, with a dessert of cheese cake soothing the egos of audience members certain that Colonel Mustard was the culprit.
During the show, junior virtuosos will play classic holiday tunes to connect with their community through service and steward holiday cheer. The library space can accommodate at least 400 community members for the concert, which will culminate in a finale conducted by a young audience member. The symphony still needs additional funding to cover the costs of transporting instruments, renting out the venue, and producing the concert.
