By the time Tannis Kobrinksy started reading, she was already learning ballet. By the time she had her driver’s license, she had become a professional dancer.
In her welcoming studio, filled with sunlight and tasteful paintings, she emphasizes communal learning. Each of her small-group lessons, which are often limited to just three or four students at a time, promote camaraderie. Joining Tannis is a team of instructors, each member drawing on a different area of expertise, including classic Pilates, ballet, tai chi, and belly dance.
Ballard’s Artwork Framing, located in Echo Park, offers street parking in front and in a nearby parking lot south of Sunset, which helps immensely in this traffic-plagued part of town. Inside, the flow is much more slowed down; framing photography or art amplifies what the piece is conveying through presentation, and Ballard’s respects that process and prides themselves on developing that understanding, as well as creating long term relationships with their clients. To ensure quality, they only use archival mats and foam board, and UV protected glass. Their main supplier, Raven & Lily, has made sustainability a promise since 1991. Ballard’s is widely considered to be one of Los Angeles best frame shops, for their service, quality and range of standard and themed frames.
