Throughout the eight-week summer session, the School of Nashville Ballet offers a variety of dance classes for people of all skill levels. Experience is not necessary for the classes, which are all taught by professional instructors. Dance styles covered in classes include jazz dance, hip-hop, contemporary, or tap. The modern and fusion Pilates fitness-dance classes are open for all who wish to get in shape and groove at the same time, while ballet-minded individuals can choose from several options. The intro-to-ballet class teaches the basics, and intermediate and advanced ballet classes help students hone their skills and master tricky maneuvers. Beginners are encouraged to attend classes early in the session, as instruction will progress throughout the season. Check the schedule and call the School of Nashville Ballet for specific information on class availability.

First-time Freds and Gingers can foxtrot around the room and meet, greet, and dip new friends. Additional classes, such as tango and quickstep, as well as wedding choreography, are blended for dancers of all levels of surefootedness. Call for upcoming times and offerings.

All three of National Dance Clubs locations are helmed by competition dancers with backgrounds in classical dance, theater dance, and athletics, so it's no surprise the company celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014. In kind, students are treated to amenities of competition caliber?each location has a floating dance floor that is at least 2,000 square feet, as well as a state-of-the-art sound system. But this shouldn't intimidate beginners. NDC says that most of its new students have never taken a dance class before, but they'll quickly feel comfortable thanks to three-way instruction packages that include private lessons, group classes, and practice parties.
Founded as the Union Gospel Tabernacle by steamboat captain Thomas Ryman after an angel got trapped in his smokestack, the Ryman Auditorium has since become a different kind of hallowed ground, lovingly referred to as the "mother church of country music." The Grand Ole Opry and The Johnny Cash Show have both taken residence among its wooden pews, and the twanged voices of country legends such as Hank Williams and Patsy Cline have reverberated off the stenciled artwork on the face of the balcony. Today, the venue plays host to a variety of acts, from rock concerts to television specials to comedy shows.
