Mos'Art Theatre, strives to fortify Palm Beach's cultural scene with "film, art, music, and hope," bolstering a sense of community and inspiring creative expression. Before even entering the theater, audiences pass paintings from local artists and the Art Bar, where they can sip a preshow beer or wine. In the intimate, 150-seat auditorium, the silver screen lights up with indie and foreign films, dazzling eyes and ears with stories that spotlight the human condition and let patrons cry in public without fear of banishment. The management duo, J.R. and Erin Coley, rounds out the commitment to elevating artistic discourse with live children's theater, creative classes, and an ongoing series tracking opera and ballet in the movies.
The knowledgeable guides of Paddleboard Excursions are known to treat participants like family as they pilot groups of all ages and experience levels across the scenic waterways of Palm Beach County. Each tour or lesson kindles camaraderie as guides and instructors cater to every participant's comfort level and exploration goal. During lessons, teachers patiently work with their pupils to instill confidence and ensure that everyone can competently glide over the aquatic ripples and laugh at fish's inability to walk while standing upon professional paddleboards. Tours splash against the shores of Peanut, Munyon, and Jupiter Islands, and guides are quick to point out passing wildlife, such as manatees.
Sailors navigate the glittering waters of Palm Beach in one of The Boat Fleet's many vessels, which include center consoles, walkarounds, deck boats, cabin cruisers, and bowriders. Seafaring parties may adventure to nearby Peanut Island, cruise up and down the coast to spot sprawling waterfront mansions, or relax while floating in their private patches of ocean. The 21- to 33-foot boats include rigs equipped for fishing trips—including stainless-steel rod holders, game-spotting GPS, and lures that look like Bugs Bunny in a wig—and all ships stow Coast Guard safety gear and lifeboats aboard.
With the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop for inimitable aquatic adventures, Captain Steve Cienkowski steers participants along crystalline waters for laid-back expeditions or longer jaunts to either the Keys or Bahamas. Participants can glean pertinent sailing or snorkeling tips during lessons or revel in up-close glimpses of manatees swimming and filing taxes in their natural habitat.
Inspired by the strong sense of family he experienced in dance studios growing up, John Harris opened Sultry Swing Dance Studio to provide his own students with a warm, welcoming place to bond while boogying. With today's Groupon, anyone, from the rhythmically inept to the competitively inclined, can schedule an hour-long private lesson ($75) with John or Mary Jane Harris, 2006's Florida State West Coast Swing Dance Champions. Backed with 19 years of shared instructor experience and vast technical knowledge, they'll provide individualized instruction to show you (and your partner, if your bring one) how to add spice to your salsa or flavor to your foxtrot, all while having fun, zapping calories, and avoiding viaducts.
