  • Atlantic Ballroom Dance Studio
    Atlantic Ballroom's esteemed faculty of trophy-touting toe tappers serve casual and competitive cavorters of all ages and backgrounds. Aspiring Astaires can trip their way through several styles, including Latin, American Smooth and Rhythm, and club-ready dances such as salsa, the hustle, and the awkward head-nod. Group classes are held once a week over the course of a month. Unlike TV crime dramas, each week builds upon the last, with every measured step nudging its way into malleable muscle memories that eagerly anticipate the next installment.

  • Towson Dance Studio
    Towson Dance Studio has bedecked barren boogie floors with lively dance classes for beginners and twinkle-towed pros since 1961. During the course of four one-hour lessons, aspiring Astaires can trot the basics with a significant other or light-footed friend, maneuvering their way through ballroom, Latin, and swing dances sure to rejuvenate ailing weddings, parties, and Lionel Richie's now-deserted ceiling. Owner John L. Pattillo infuses his instructors with an emphasis on the craft's key elements—music, character, hold, and balance—ensuring that each gracefully permeates a muscle's memory while gently abolishing aching reminiscences of bygone sleep spasms. Check out the schedule for upcoming class dates and times.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

  • Strand Theater Company
    Strand Theater Company presents original, evocative plays with an emphasis on providing women opportunities for roles as actors, directors, playwrights, and set designers. Strand's upcoming 2010–11 season kicks off with the critically acclaimed The Glory of Living (October 7–23), which relates Rebecca Gilman's visceral and complex story of a 16-year-old girl married to an ex-convict twice her age. When the holiday season arrives and families start glazing their mistletoe with a mixture of eggnog and ham essence, you can get in the spirit with A Peppermint Patty Christmas (December 2–18), which portrays a character vowing to speak the truth when she heads home for the holidays. A dramatic adaptation of Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking (February 3–19) is a compelling one-woman play, written after the loss of Didion's husband and daughter. The season wraps up with the socially minded One Flea Spare (April 21–May 7), Naomi Wallace's sharp play based in seventeenth-century England and called "one of the finest works of dramatic literature" by playwright Tony Kushner.

  • Fells Point Corner Theater
    The thespians and theater crew at Fells Point Corner Theatre have enchanted audiences with nonprofit productions of new and rarely seen plays for 25 years. Upcoming attractions include Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women, the 1994 Pulitzer Prize winner about three differently aged women who reflect on their lives with acerbic wit while scaling skyscrapers; and The Little Dog Laughed, a look at gossip and celebrity in the 21st century. Colorful characters populate Circle Mirror Transformation, a comedy detailing a motley crew’s attempt at bonding during a six-week acting class; Eugene O’Neill’s iconic play The Iceman Cometh explores universal social questions in the back room of a 1912 skid-row saloon. Though seating at the 85-seat Fells Point Corner Theatre is subject to availability, the small size of the theater allows for good sight lines from all seats.
