  • Athletic PlayGround
    In the course of a typical adult life, it's hard to find opportunities to hang upside down. Unless you take classes at Athletic Playground, that is. Completing one of the center's workouts, which one coach refers to as "grown-up recess," may include carrying classmates on your back or doing flips in circus silks. Below, check out the five best things about their playful workouts: They can turn you into a monkey. In one class, dubbed "Monkey Conditioning," students get in touch with their inner primate, re-learning how to move on all fours and clamber over obstacles. You can't lose. There's nothing competitive about these workouts. Everyone is encouraged to do their best and applauded when they master a new skill. You don't need a circus background. The studio welcomes beginners wth open arms. With enough training, their students can reach levels of flexibility and grace normally found in acrobats and pretzels. There's a sense of community. This is especially true in AcroBalance, a class where students experiment with partnered balancing, and climb all over each other to build elaborate human pyramids. Kids can do it, too. The coaches offer parkour, acrobatics, and aerial training for kids as young as five.

  • Dance SF
    The staccato beat of conga drums rises over the deep voice of a bass guitar and the higher trills of the timbales and piano. Head dancer Evan Margolin and his bevy of experienced instructors lead students in classes that take beginners through basic footwork and salsa rhythms, with intermediate and advanced sessions offering salsa aficionados more challenging instruction. The social class structure—partners rotate throughout every session—creates a low-pressure learning environment and keeps dancers from scrambling to locate a partner or human-shaped tupperware container. The one-hour beginner classes are mostly filled with salsa novices and new dancers, and Dance SF's experienced and engaging local salsateers are patient and friendly when showing new students how to bust well-timed moves. During intermediate classes, which require six months or more of social dancing experience, students focus on timing and cross-body leads with turns. After some evening classes, new dancers are invited to join an all-night salsa party where they can put their new moves in practice. Students should wear comfortable clothing, which includes dancing shoes, but does not include rear-flapped onesie pajamas.

  • Robotics for Fun
    Teaching robotics at the Chabot Space & Science Center, Jutiki Gunter realized that his pupils had few robotics-learning resources outside the classroom. He aimed to fill that gap by founding Robotics for Fun in 2004, supplying students with a year-round space where they can construct robots and enrich their mathematic and scientific skills along the way. Gunter's team of instructors fills inquisitive minds with basic design and programming know-how, as well as teaching them how to make two robots communicate and fashion a racing robot programmed to express crippling anxiety. Students enrolled in the membership program tinker on themed projects throughout the year, while attendees of the Robotics for Fun summer camp study programming languages or the fundamentals of RC-vehicle technology.
