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.

The 65' x 80' screen towers over the audience, immersing them in overwhelming three-dimensional visuals like a diorama built in Paul Bunyan's shoebox. Swing from the trees with Born to be Wild 3D, a heartwarming documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman that introduces audiences to the lives of orphaned orangutans and elephants and their human care-givers. Hubble 3D follows the crewmembers of the space shuttle Atlantis on their mission to repair the Hubble Telescope, giving viewers a close-up look at such breathtaking galactic events as the birth of stars and the Quinceañera of planets.

Home to professional, regional theater, Open Stage of Harrisburg closes the curtain on its 25th season with a diverse quartet of one-person plays. This year's Flying Solo Festival opens with Pretty (June 2 at 8 p.m.), which tells an entertaining, tiara-driven tale of beauty pageants and society's preoccupation with pulchritude, written and performed by Jessica Bedford. Authored and acted out by Peterson Toscano, Transfigurations (June 9 at 8 p.m.) introduces the Bible's unsung gender-variant protagonists and recounts their stories with humor and heart, and Artificial Fellow Traveler (June 16 at 8 p.m.) stars playwright-performer Ethan Sandler and incorporates found texts to address fears, conspiratorial or otherwise, about the CIA's involvement in the Cold War and the invention of the Roomba. Lastly, Barbara Bates Smith slips on a gingham house-dress and wide-brimmed sassy hat to become the story-telling protagonist of Ivy Rowe (June 23 at 8 p.m.), a stage adaptation of Lee Smith's novel Fair and Tender Ladies.

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.
