After taking down Villanova and Morgan State, the Towson University Tigers plan to continue their winning ways against NCAA FCS foes with team coordination honed by coach Rob Ambrose. The four remaining home games promise a thrilling Homecoming on September 24, when the Tigers hope to roar past Colgate's Raiders and claw their way to a collective nomination for homecoming queen. Throughout the season, look for sophomore quarterback Grant Enders—who recently was named CAA Offensive Player of the Week—or speedy running back Sterlin Phifer to celebrate touchdowns in the end zone against the Richmond Spiders and Delaware Blue Hens. Co-captain and defensive back Jordan Dangerfield will try to improve his status as the nation's 24th-ranked sacker by blasting through New Hampshire's offensive line using archaic tactics the Visigoths once used to sack Rome.

This newly opened megacenter offers more than 5,000 square feet of open space for slick shoes and rug cuttery. The staff is composed of well-oiled dance machines who lead eclectic student groups across a multi-genre range of dance styles. Learn how to pirouette like a pro with the classical ballet class (offered for beginners and intermediate/advanced), or take a fanciful tap class and finally use those tap shoes you bought for their intended purpose, instead of for alerting your skittish, shotgun-toting grandma to your presence. A Latin dance class (pre-registration required) is offered to get hips swinging and tongues rolling, while the yoga class is a great way to unwind by bringing uppity energies back down to earthly levels through relaxing poses. Check out the schedule for a complete list of dates, times, and class offerings.

Nearly 300 years ago, the elders of China's Shaolin Temple convened to develop a new kind of martial arts. They dreamt of a style that would eventually overcome all the others, thanks to its combat efficacy and the fact that it would take a much shorter time to learn. They named this style Wing Chun, a Chinese phrase that translates to "forever springtime" and reflected their hope for a renaissance in Shaolin martial arts.

This renaissance never quite arrived, but traditional Wing Chun is still practiced today. This is largely thanks to the efforts of practitioners such as Grandmaster William Cheung and Sifu Tim Berkemeier, the latter of whom founded Traditional Wing Chun Baltimore. It's easy to see Wing Chun's appeal to modern sensibilities, as it emphasizes a scientific approach that draws on biomechanics and angular deflections. It's also ideal for students who don't have the muscles to send their opponents flying across the room, as it focuses on disabling rather than brute strength.

Tahirah Bowrey—the owner and head dancer of Creative Impulse Dance Studio—helms a team of five talented instructors that teach fleet-footed charges to step, swivel, and sway in styles ranging from hip-hop to ballet. Students of all ages match their footwork to classical refrains or pulsing, bass-heavy beats in three class levels, suited to beginner through advanced coryphées. Adults tone their bodies’ contours and learn to outmaneuver calories in sensual, cardio-infused styles such as floor- and pole dancing, and young children prepare to dazzle discerning hopscotch judges with pirouettes perfected in ballet class. Instructors hold lessons in a spacious hardwood studio flooded with natural light from tall windows and echoing with the sounds of toes tapping in unison.
