Authentic Belly Dancing Entertainment & Academy's staff of professional dancers pop up around Dallas, shimmering across the stages of restaurants, dazzling guests at private parties, and stealing the stony hearts of competition judges. During their weekend performances and special events, solitary dancers, partners, trios, and troupes perform traditional and Egyptian belly dance movements. They spice up routines with swords, candles, and fire while astounding audiences by manipulating their stomach muscles to pour shots or stop errant cannon balls.

Back at their headquarters on the hardwood studio floors of Dana's Dance Academy, the professional swirlers impart their art to aspiring dancers in beginner and advanced belly-dancing classes throughout the week. A social and enjoyable form of aerobic exercise—unlike sleep dancing, which is essentially solitary—the classes also aim to boost students' confidence, grace, and poise.

Academy students can take their skills to the public stage by performing at Harem Nites at Stratnos Greek Tavern, where, on the first Thursday of every month, professionals and first-timers alike dance together in front of a live audience of spectators, friends, and family.

In the early 20th century, a twisted ringmaster led his shadowy circus around the country, enticing visitors with his horrifying freak show. Mysterious disappearances followed the circus wherever it went—outcast and orphan children were especially quick to vanish. The ringmaster kept his stolen freaks in animal-like conditions, until one day they rose up against him in rebellion. These new ringmasters had a thirst for blood—and revenge.

The Strangling Brothers Texas haunted circus now appears each autumn, showing off its sinister collection of clowns and man-beast hybrids. The circus occupies more than 20 haunted tractor-trailers, daring brave visitors to enter and join the show.

The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into four-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy.

Both former professionally performing cirque artists, Kimberly Adele and Dylan Keith wanted to share the joys of flight and mastering the wide-ranging and eclectic cirque arts. To that end, they train aerial apprentices at CirqueFit, blending aspects of music, dance, and theater with soaring circus maneuvers. Kimberly and Keith emphasize proper safety throughout all their programs. Their class environment of trust and positivity makes for an engaging socializing forum and an upbeat venue for children—some as young as 3 years old—where they can develop their coordination, confidence, and ability to best any bear balancing atop a circus ball. Students of all ages can swoop and spin on the lyra or spiral down aerial silks during aerial cirque-arts classes or hone their balance skills in acro-yoga sessions, which rely on partner poses to form living sculptures. In addition to imparting high-flying skills, each class rewards students with fitness benefits, which tighten cores and tone physiques as guests hoist their own bodyweight above cushioned mats.

Donna Park's passion for performance preceded the bulk of her vocabulary: at 4 years old, she got into the habit of correcting the dance steps of the other children in her recitals. Her unquenchable thirst for performance led her through a theater minor in college to the discovery of film, then onto a career as a director, writer, and producer of television specials and commercials. Now, calling upon contacts developed during her 20-year career, she brings working professionals to Texas Creative Arts Academy to share their hard-earned wisdom with the young.

The Academy's year-round programs gather students aged 4 to 18 to celebrate their interest in dance, art, film, and melodrama. Aspiring artisans learn the basics of canvas and garment craftsmanship in Hi Ho! Van Gogh! and Design Fashion Diva! camps. Teachers unlock high notes in students' vocal ranges with voice lessons and train the eyes of future cameramen in video-production classes. Piano and guitar instruction empowers kids to realize a future where spontaneous public musical numbers don’t just happen on stage.
