A bullying incident escalates to all-out domestic warfare in Mile Square Theatre’s production of God of Carnage, a searing comedy that interrogates the assumed disparity between childish and adult behaviors. Penned by French playwright Yasmina Reza, the play centers on a pair of couples who meet under the pretense of civility to discuss a quarrel between their 11-year-old boys. The parents’ quest for resolution gradually deteriorates into a psychological head-butting contest, culminating in the moment when their inner toddlers break out pacifiers for a soft-sworded duel to the end. An outstanding cast of stage veterans draws laughter with a convincing performance, committing to the chaos while audience members chuckle and shift uncomfortably in their chairs.

Roshelle “Rocky” Wilder, NYC Dance Arts’ founding director, began dancing and choreographing dance pieces when she was still in high school. She has performed with underground hip-hop artists such as Denzil Porter, Deena Jones, and The Future, and her students at NYC Dance Arts have performed on Broadway, earning mention from ExpertsColumn.com.. With a team of teachers, Wilder guides students through the steps of contemporary hip-hop, classical ballet, heart-healthy Zumba, and other dance-centric classes.

Ballet classes boost students’ balance, concentration, and coordination while strengthening core muscles. Modern/contemporary dance rebels against the traditional aesthetic of classical ballet with abstract, emotive movements—or by cutting class, sneaking out, and taking the works of Jean-Paul Sartre very seriously. Break dance 101 introduces students to urban street dance, focusing on inspiration and creativity. Yoga fitness classes combine a cardio workout with deep-breathing exercises and yoga poses. In addition to regular classes, NYC Dance Arts offers special workshops with visiting choreographers and professional dancers, and organizes dance flash mobs—groups of dancers who meet in a public place to perform a dance routine.

A rare outlet for commercially sanctioned laughter in downtown Los Angeles, Garrett Morris’ Downtown Blues and Comedy Club helps visitors escape the stresses of the workweek with a rotating stable of top-tier standup talent every Friday and Saturday. Comic legend Garrett Morris, now seen as Earl on CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, hosts showcases of comic talent with charming wit and tales of how he outlived the original cast of Saturday Night Live. The bill remains consistently loaded with fresh-faced and seasoned funny folk, with past luminaries including George Lopez, Margaret Cho, and Wayne Brady, along with aspiring stars in the twilight before their first mismatched-marriage sitcom.

Keeping true to its name and Morris’ roots in the New Orleans music scene, the venue often punctuates its comedy shows with performances from top blues artists—including Morris himself, who has lent his soulful pipes to the Harry Belafonte Singers—that add melody to the mirth. While weekend shows feature Garrett’s hosting and harmonies along with the headlining acts, the Thursday Night Experience allows youthful burgeoning comics and musicians to hog the spotlight.

Presiding over the south side of the Lincoln Center's main plaza, the David H. Koch Theater is undergoing a 10-year renovation to keep it as stunning as the day it opened during the 1964 World's Fair. Even without restoration, the theater's 7,875-square-foot promenade creates a magnificent backdrop to the plaza's fountain—particularly at twilight, when the floors of inlaid travertine marble glow in golden harmony with 40-foot ceilings filigreed with gold leaf. Classical statuary bookends the lobby, and four balcony levels give visitors plenty of vantage points during intermission.

For decades, patrons of the New York City Ballet (and, until 2008, the New York City Opera) have ascended the spiral staircases and bathed in the light of the auditorium's spherical chandelier, the luminous center of the ceiling's ornate flower pattern. The David H. Koch Theater also plays host each year to a variety of local and international dance troupes, such as the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, and the Nederlands Dans Theater.

Though they hail from all over the world, the instructors at Bellyqueen are united by their passion for belly dance.
