The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

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.

An exquisite example of Wright's ranch houses, the Martin Complex was commissioned by Darwin D. Martin of the Buffalo-based Larkin Soap Company in 1902. With this deal, you'll get an extensive guided tour of the historical property, beginning with an examination of the exterior of the main Martin House while your guide discusses the intricacies of Wright's architectural style. Since the interior of the Martin House is currently closed for renovations, the tour has expanded to include several other parts of the complex, starting with a walk down the stunning Pergola, a 100-foot walkway connecting the Martin House to the conservatory. There, a lush indoor garden awaits, showcasing Wright's uncanny ability to combine interior spaces with nature without simply stapling algae to the walls. Then, take a walk inside the first floor of the Barton House, the first building constructed on the complex in 1903. The tour continues with a visit to the first floor of the Gardener's Cottage, built in 1909 and exemplifying Wright's concept of small, affordable housing. Lasting about an hour and a half, the tour includes plenty of walking, so visitors should be sure to bring comfortable shoes.

Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.

Strap yourself into an unrestrictive seat at ComedySportz for a some-holds-barred, refereed stage match for comedic supremacy. Fueled by the suggestions and overall uproar of the audience, performers provide family-friendly humor as they jump through songs and scenes onstage. Each match flies faster than a speeding mind-bullet through content significantly safer for children than speeding mind-bullets. Much like snowflakes, no two matches are the same, and all of them are best enjoyed with an outstretched tongue. Watching a group of people thinking on their toes (a typical improv troupe has between seven and 94 toes) is more fun than losing to children at Scrabble. And whether you're attending the show as a means of entertaining the family or as an alternative to yelling hysterically at zoo animals, ComedySportz welcomes you with open arms.
