Tomaj Trenda has devoted his life to dance. After receiving a Masters degree in dance education, he has been honing the toe-taps of students everywhere from the University of Washington to the National Ballet of Mexico. Tomaj also keeps his skills and stage presence honed by performing internationally throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Not content to accept old traditions as law, he has spent considerable post-graduate time training in how to teach new motor skills to adults.When instructing people through dance, Tomaj works with the brain instead of against it. Using a measured amount of repetition, he ensures his students learn and retain the steps from every class. Each lesson builds off the skills of the last, creating a strong foundation on which students stack a repertoire of moves and their hope of beating the Greasers in any sudden dance-offs. Leaders learn various root moves and how to combine and vary those moves to create complex and stylistic dance routines.

A group of teachers and parents founded Habitot Children's Museum in 1998 with one specific mission in mind: to foster children up to 6 years old by encouraging their creativity and natural curiosity. Today, the 4,000-square-foot museum backs up this mission with research—gleaned from studies by scientists, psychologists, and educators—positing that healthy play spurs social skills, creative thinking, and problem solving, laying the foundation for kids to succeed later in life and imprison boogeymen in their booby-trapped closet tomorrow.

At Habitot, kids find such opportunities at small-scale exhibits and themed play areas throughout the museum. Aspiring firefighters steer a small-scale truck, race through a pretend burning building, and maneuver the hose and nozzle from a fire hydrant, all while donning coats, boots, and helmets. Young explorers press buttons, turn dials, and issue commands for pretend space launches inside a 13-foot model rocket ship or navigate a vertical floor-to-ceiling maze designed to mimic worm tunnels. At the waterworks table and pumping station, young engineers manipulate water using buckets, funnels, waterwheels, and pitchers to help them understand H2O’s unique properties, such as how it keeps boats afloat on the arms of a thousand mermen. (At different times throughout the year, the staff transforms this area with a different theme; at times it’s been a car wash, a marine-science lab, or the racing grounds for a rubber-ducky regatta.) Visitors can tap into their inner Van Goghs at the art studio, where they play with soft clays and go nuts on a paintable wall. Habitot also hosts year-round children's camps with themes such as beaches, transportation, space, castles, and science.
