Housed in an open, peaceful space, Serendipity Yoga offers a variety of classes for yoga enthusiasts or for those hoping to increase flexibility without the negative back talk of a medieval stretcher. Vinyasa classes focus on the inhalation of oxygen with each movement, creating a coordinated dance between breathing and posing. Traditional ashtanga yoga enhances concentration and calm with a series of linked postures, whereas hot vinyasa yoga places students in a heated room to release toxins, increase flexibility, and keep ice-cream trucks in business all winter long. Because there are no prerequisites for any of Serendipity's classes, the expert instructors will tailor each movement to the individual student's level. Check out the schedule for class times.

At an improv show, not even clairvoyant mystics or current fashion experts know what's coming next. Enjoy a predictably sporadic evening of collaborative comedy with today's deal. For $15, you get two tickets ($15 each) to your choice of a Friday- or Saturday-night show at Go! Comedy Improv Theater, a $30 total value. In 2010, Real Detroit Weekly dubbed this Ferndale-based theater Best Comedy Company, and Metro Times readers named it Best Comedy Club in 2009.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated that flowers are the earth laughing at a tastefully improvised flatulence joke, though Go! Comedy prefers higher-brow forms, converting bodily functions to complex metaphors for life and love. Stop by Saturday at 8 p.m. for the Date Night, where the audience chooses which two actors should become star-crossed romantics amidst the fabricated social dynamics of onstage dramedy. Live out a theatrical fantasy on Friday night at 8 p.m. when you shout out a suggestive title at the on-the-fly musical, Rock-O-Matic. Any suggestion will do; scream for a performance of Whittler on the Roof, Guys and Barbie Dolls, or Homeschool Musical (no "Freebird"). Stop in Friday or Saturday night at 10 p.m. for the All-Star Showdown, an interactive game show that takes audience suggestions as actors move through a series of improv games and challenges.

With four weekend showtimes to choose from, impromptu improv outings can easily nestle inside the Russian doll that is a busy schedule. Gather up a crowd of formerly taunted teens and laugh with them, not at them, or bring a date for a chance to shamelessly yell taboo words in public without the awkward accosting. All shows feature a full bar to loosen up the spasmodic laughter reflexes.

Reviews

Detroit loves Go Comedy! Improv Theater, which won Best Comedy Club in 2009 from Metro Times readers and Best Comedy Company in 2010 from Real Detroit Weekly. Yelpers give it 4.5 stars.

  • Laughs are one commodity this battered Rust Belt community is always in need of, and Go! Comedy is all too willing to tickle what's left of your weary funny bone. A formerly grimly utilitarian Secretary of State office in Ferndale has morphed into a jubilant home base for Detroit's scattered improv comedy tribes, with all the off-the-cuff humor one could ever dream of. – Metro Times
  • Those characters at GO! Comedy in Ferndale are really good, or maybe some of you just need to get out more. For the second year in a row, the funny fashionistas on 9 Mile have been selected by a discerning readership as the best troupe in town when it comes to Thalia’s temper tantrums. – Real Detroit Weekly

At Mistalocks, students learn dances with such upbeat names as boppin' and steppin', just two of the studio's unconventional lineup of partner dance styles. In group classes, master instructor Buford Collins starts at the beginning, showing students how to count out rhythms, feel the music, and follow steps with a partner. His specialty is Chicago Style Steppin', which has similar characteristics to West Coast Swing, but he also leads students through the steps of Detroit ballroom, Graystone, tango, and salsa. For him, these dance styles are more than just a way to move to music. He considers them a fundamental part of humanity's heritage, much like reality television.

Modern Skate & Surf?s alternative-sports shop was founded in 1979 and has since hosted events frequented by Olympic and professional athletes?including superstar Tony Hawk?as well as earned a feature as Best Snowboard Shop in 2012 from Real Detroit Weekly. In Modern Skate Park's world-class, 60,000-square-foot Royal Oak skate park?one of the largest facilities of its kind in the US?skateboards grind across rails or glide over jumps, and inline skaters whiz over obstacles and BMX bikes hang in midair. Customers can build on their extreme-sports skills in clinics and lessons or rent out the facility for parties or high-speed chases. Committed to supporting the next generation of extreme athletes, Modern Skate Park offers discounts to students who bring in report cards sporting A?s and B?s.

In addition to the skate park, Modern Skate & Surf also maintains a East Lansing store that stocks snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding, skating, and protective gear to facilitate exciting adventures.
