Instructor Nataliya Saborio draws upon her award-winning competitive dance career in Ukraine to lead a schedule of 60-minute belly-dance sessions stratified into three difficulty levels. Dancers need no prior experience to pick up modalities such as current class topic Egyptian pop beledi. The Middle Eastern cocktail of classic belly-dance movements, isolations, and shimmies syncs to beledi beats as energizing and addicting as a caffeinated Twinkie. On March 12, the curriculum will shift to focus on folkloric dances from locales such as Tunisia and Morocco that together constitute the foundation of belly dance. By studying the various incarnations of the sinuous, abdomen-centered art form, students will slim their figures, build flexibility, and boost their ability to crack walnuts with their abs.

Today's deal can be used for any Live Nation concert at the open-air Cruzan Amphitheatre, providing fans with aural stimulation of all stripes, filling ears more pleasantly than the aggressively atonal orchestras that roam the countryside.

Boy-band juggernaut and Nickelodeon sensation Big Time Rush shines like the sun’s sons as its hotly anticipated Big Time Summer Tour enraptures flocks of fans with pop bliss. The fab foursome, known as BTR to fans and preteen stenographers, first snatched the hearts of millions with its eponymous TV show, which is the most-watched live-action series in Nickelodeon’s history. On the group's choreographed carnival of a tour, expert hoofer and crooner Kendall Schmidt leads the affable cast of personalities, which includes James (the ladies' man), Carlos (the joker), and Logan (the smarty warty), through hits from its gold debut, BTR. Chart-topping sophomore album, Elevate, also sees its anthemic tunes represented, such as “Music Sounds Better With U” and “All Over Again.” Expect elastic dance moves from the dapper quadratic and possible numbers from the just-released Big Time Movie, in which BTR covers tunes by obscure boy band The Beatles. Australian wunderkind Cody Simpson starts the show with peppy rallies and aural morality plays about how love can be tough and why stealing your dad’s head to sneak into R-rated movies isn’t cool.
