Throughout Los Angeles, children as young as 2 are honing coordination, social skills, and other life essentials in Super Soccer Stars LA's kid-friendly camps. Each age-specific session is based on curricula designed by both soccer experts and early childhood and behavioral specialists in order to grant little ones with a fun and well-rounded experience in each drill they run and game they play. From dribbling and passing to more general principles such as teamwork, campers will learn skills that will help them succeed beyond the soccer field in the classroom, on the playground, and in the ball-kicking portion of state standardized tests. At the end of each camp day, children show off their new abilities by competing in a mini World Cup.
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
A 30-year old institution situated in bustling West Hollywood, 3rd Street Dance rolls out a fleet of private and group lessons from its packed schedule that garnered the title of Best Ballroom-Dance Studio in 2009 from LA Weekly. Students study styles such as salsa, ballroom, and swing during 55-minute group and private lessons, where they put their new skills to use in one of five naturally lit studio spaces accented with sprung hardwood floors and wall-to-wall mirrors. Small class sizes ensure that fledgling twirlers receive individual attention from friendly, handpicked instructors and lessen the chances of tangoing with unresponsive walls. 3rd Street Dance's rentable spaces were the home studio of Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance for four years, and they remain a go-to spot for wedding-dance practice.
