  • West Shore Senior Citizens Center
    Hoofers need no prior experience to participate in ballroom veteran Susan Strahosky’s friendly and informal classes, which lead a diverse group of students though the distinctive, elastic movements of West Coast swing. The 45-minute basics class encourages participants to dance with each other, giving students the opportunity to make new friends and surreptitiously stick post-it notes on everyone's back. Afterward, dancers can munch on provided snacks while watching the advanced swing students perform dapper improvisations during the follow-up Beyond Basics class. From 8 p.m. to 10:15 p.m., open dancing gives participants a chance to perfect newly minted skills while benefiting from more experienced dancers’ advice on how to step through a hole in the universe.

  • Christopher O’Riley
    Part of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center, the Gordon Center for Performing Arts takes a broad view of what Jewish culture means. It might mean a dance performance from an Israeli choreographer, a concert of the music of Felix Mendelssohn, or a modern klezmer-band performance. The venue was built to suit an eclectic array of art forms, including film?its movie screen is among the largest in the state. The 550-seat concert hall itself, however, has an intimate feel. It's only 18 rows deep, with clear sight lines from every seat in the house. That's not all that makes it a welcoming place to catch a show: there's also the free, well-lit parking lot, the fully handicap-accessible auditorium, and an RF audio system for the hearing impaired.
