The enthusiastic instructors at That's Dancing Ballroom & Dancesport Center guide students of all levels through an eclectic schedule of group and private classes. Fledgling hoofers shimmy to hip-shaking rhythms during the beginner rumba class, and the intro and advanced waltz classes beckon both novice and veteran dancers to glide across the ballroom floors while holding tightly to partners or imaginary friends. Build skills in the intermediate fox trot class or undulate midsections during belly-dancing sessions. Teachers dole out one-on-one instruction during half-hour private lessons, helping dancers to conquer difficult steps or instilling the ability to simultaneously dance the charleston while preparing a five-course meal at home.
During Race & Seek, an extra phone battery in your pocket could easily be worth thousands of dollars. The urban scavenger hunt sends teams of 2–10 out into city streets in search of 14 clues, which they must capture via photo or video with their smart phones. The first-prize winners haul in some serious bounty: $500 and free entry into the Grand Championship, where $5,000 waits at the finish line.
But a slew of physical and mental challenges stand in the way of that money. Harder and harder clues come in via text and email, and as participants decipher them, they must navigate the city largely on foot—no cars, bikes, taxis, or griffins are allowed—with the aid of GPS and a city map.
Overtime's trained youth leaders shepherd kindergarten-age kids through sixth-grade students in gamecentric day camps designed to cultivate teamwork skills and healthy lifestyles at an early age.
