For beginning suitors to the zoot, try the Swingin' From Scratch course, with upcoming sessions from May 5-26 (on Wednesday evenings) and June 7-28 (on Monday evenings) at Firefly Studio in Decatur. Learn how to move from certifiably passionate swingers (of the dance variety) as they lead novice feet around the room for an hour. Other class options include courses in Balboa, jazz and blues steps, along with Lindy Hop and Charleston sessions for those who have already completed their intro to swing. Whatever class you choose, you'll cut rugs with newly honed shoe-scissors to classic rockabilly, R&B, and other swing-era music. Beginners will quickly learn how to juke and flow around the room like turn-of-the-century dance machines with modern flair, while more advanced students may discover that they still have a thing or two to learn. Sign up with your special sidekick or recruit your clone for a weekly boost in energy, confidence, and foot workability.

Francisco Antonio Rodrigues da Silva⎯better known to his students as Mestre Fran⎯began his journey with Caopeira at age 10, studying the ancient dancelike martial art under a seasoned teacher in Sao Paolo. After years of learning the hypnotic rhythmic moves of Capoeira and studying the African dance rhythms of Macuele, Mestre Fran took his art to the streets of Londrina, Brazil, giving impoverished youth a positive outlet for their creative energies with public performances and classes. After developing a successful martial arts organization in his home country, Mestre Fran set out for the United States in 2002, introducing Americans to Caoperia through cultural shows throughout the Atlanta area and instructing newcomers through beginner, children's, and adult classes.

Like punching a portrait of your smug fruit bowl, capoeria combines both art and fighting. The practice develops the mind, body, and spirit by instilling self-confidence, building agility and strength, and teaching students about the vibrant culture of Brazil. Capoeiristas twist and bob to the rhythm of drums as they execute gymnastic kicks and turns, or they show off their newfound knowledge at the studio's Friday-night Samba, Macuele, and Portuguese language classes.

There’s nothing political about a steak, even if it comes from a steakhouse run by the children of DeKalb County’s former tax commissioner and county commissioner. John-Thomas and Christopher Scott, owners of Parker’s on Ponce, envisioned their space as a cozy meeting place for everyone in the neighborhood. Mullioned windows surround their dining room, where servers deliver the restaurant’s signature dish, the 16-ounce kansas city strip, amid two stone-faced fireplaces and twinkling tabletop candles. So perfectly prepared is this steak—along with the 16-ounce rib eye, 10-ounce filet, and a 32-ounce porterhouse—that the eatery garnered a Diner’s Choice nod for best steaks on OpenTable.com. Southern-style classics receive upscale twists as evidenced by the Carolina trout, which comes adorned with a citrus beurre blanc and white-cheddar grits, as well as bone-in pork chops and salmon served with a salsa of pomegranate and barbecued mango. To accompany the rich fare, the Scotts and their staff have curated a lengthy wine selection, which ranges from Italian pinot grigio to a merlot squeezed from moon rocks. They are skilled in recommending craft and large-format beers from around the globe or one of 12 signature cocktails created with top-shelf liquors.
