  • The New Movement Theater New Orleans
    Dubbed a “powerhouse of comedy” by the Austin Chronicle, The New Movement unleashes a dizzying number of comedy shows that belie the institution’s young age. Founded in 2009 by improvisers Chris Trew and Tami Nelson, the theater and conservatory has already established itself in two cities, training fledgling performers in the art of the extemporaneous by inspiring them to take comedic risks on stage, whether it’s connecting emotionally with a character or performing actual surgery. Whether or not the performers are costumed or bearing props, they aim to create a fully realized world on stage through grounded situations and elegant but always creative transitions between scenes.

  • The Mardi Gras School of Cooking
    The Mardi Gras School of Cooking & Catering draws out inner chefs and teaches them to prepare an entire menu of Cajun and Creole specialties. After adorning themselves with aprons, participants demonstrate the knife-handling skills they acquired in high-school economics and chop ingredients for each dish. After the cooking begins by creating a chocolate bread pudding with a mocha-chocolate-brandy sauce, the class studiously dives into roux. Under the tutelage of the school’s chefs, participants learn four ways to master roux, using them to prepare a gumbo and either an étouffée or a shrimp creole. At the end of class, graduates can toast to their culinary prowess and their much-improved chances at success on future first dates with glasses of wine served alongside the feast.

  • Anthony Bean Theater
    Anthony Bean wanted to leave a mark on his community, and when he saw his community lacked a proper outlet for theater, he created one. Since 2000, Anthony Bean Theater has worked with local citizens of all ages and skill levels to become actors, design sets, and manage the establishment. Ten years later, the Arts Council of New Orleans honored the theater with a Community Arts Award, which recognized Bean's contribution to the arts in his neighborhood.

  • Pure Barre New Orleans & Metairie
    In 2001, Carrie Rezabek Dorr's only venue for her Pure Barre workouts?a fusion of weights, pilates and the origins of ballet?was the basement of an office building. Crowds drawn by Carrie's choreographing expertise and the infectious music of her routines necessitated expansion, however, and eight years later, Pure Barre spread its franchises to what is now more than 250 locations across the country, spurred by mentions in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Health magazines. Pure Barre guides students through precise isometric movements that craft lean, not bulky, muscles. By transitioning through scalable maneuvers that balance limbs against a ballet barre, physiques can lift and tighten traditional problem areas such as the thighs, abs, seat, and arms. The total-body workout is accessible to all fitness levels, and can help new mothers to regain their desired shape without leading the daycare's piggyback carpool. High-energy, intimate classes with small amounts of attendees ensure personalized adjustments and tips, allowing each guest to derive the deepest possible burn from the workout's alternating strength and stretch drills. Pure Barre also offers new client specials, bridal packages, private barre-ties, DVDs, equipment, designer athletic apparel and more.
