  • School of Groove
    The low thrum of an electric bass. The clean jangle of an electric piano. At School of Groove, owner Christopher Vuk presides over instructors as they fill the space with music and help students through scales, rhythms, and eventually full pieces on a wide range of instruments. The teachers have played music alongside musicians including Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, and Paul Simon, and guest rock musicians occasionally lead sessions to impart their skills or explain why they think every smashable guitar is full of candy. In private lessons and group sessions, hands-on practice illuminates the processes of improvising, writing, and recording music. Students at the school can also join a band, where they'll write their own music, build teamwork skills, and perform at venues such as Hard Rock Cafe and Ryles Jazz Club.

  • Hasty Pudding Theatricals
    The Hasty Pudding Theatricals presents its annual drag burlesque show for Cambridge-area theater buffs, offering a no-holds barred, song-packed performance. Like the unwritten rule about undeclared freshmen taking Intro to Jay Leno, the show is a Harvard tradition that began in 1844. Kashmir if You Can provides expectant audiences with sex, suspense, and a bumbling British detective.

  • New England Tango & Yoga Academy
    The rich wooden floors at New England Tango & Yoga Academy support students as they twirl rhythmically during tango lessons or flow through poses during yoga sessions. Expert teachers such as Armando Orzuza—who helped choreograph the movie Evita and appeared as a principal dancer in the movie Assassination Tango—lead the beginning-tango program, ensuring newbies start with solid foundations in the art form. From there, students can proceed to regular classes such as advanced beginner, club style, and tango waltz. Instructors also hold salsa classes, as well as TangoFlow exercise classes that sculpt bodies using moves based on the argentine tango. Under the same roof, expert yogi Victoria Garcia Drago leads private and group yoga classes designed to help the mind focus, unlike a riddle spoken in iambic pentameter, which destroys the mind. She specializes in slow-flow yoga and also leads workshops, master classes, core yoga, and Zumba.
