At the helm of L.A. Dance School of the Arts is director Angela Paolino Thompson, a graduate of NYU’s dance program. Certified by the Dance Educators of America, she leads a team that instills the grace and technique needed for recreational, competitive, and professional dancing success. Their twinkle-toed repertoire includes at least 10 modalities of dance at any time, such as tap, jazz, hip-hop, and ballet. They also incorporate acting, vocal, and fitness classes into their repertoire, and offer more traditional boot-camp workouts as well.
Studio owner and award-winning dancer Dianna “D” Dray calls ballroom dance “therapy for the soul.” With her fellow instructors, she hosts these unorthodox therapy sessions, basing the lessons on the philosophy that “anyone can learn.” On Latin Days (Mondays and Thursdays), the teachers lead salsa, rumba, cha-cha, and samba classes. Other days feature ballroom dances such as the foxtrot and the tango (Tuesdays), and freewheeling swing and hustle classes (Wednesdays). D also leads classes specifically for brides- and grooms-to-be, teaching them the steps to gracefully handle their first dance as a married couple, whether it’s a tactful waltz or a classy hokey pokey.
In the kitchen of The Chubby Pickle, cooks whip up homemade specials and prepares Angus short rib patties to serve between brioche buns. As they consume jumbo party wings, patrons can cheer on athletes in football games or pay-per-view UFC fights shown on high-definition TVs mounted on the pickle-green walls. Behind the full bar, staff members fill pint glasses with domestic and imported brews and shake up cocktails against a musical backdrop of karaoke or live music. On mild evenings, the outdoor patio?which has its own set of flat-screen TVs?plays host to themed events and parties.
