With an 8,400-square-foot space, a celebrated dance troupe, and nurturing, professional instructors, Sonshine Performing Arts Academy skillfully coaches foot-owners of all ages in myriad dance styles. Tote along your significant other, or shimmy solo in a one-hour private lesson in ballroom, swing, country or Latin dance. Couples and singles will receive individual attention during the personal tutorial to improve upon hip-shaking skills and give formerly wallflowerish shoes the confidence needed to ask the floor to dance. Hit up the two-hour group dance lesson for some interactive jitterbug revelry as you practice swing, ballroom, and more alongside other burgeoning hoofers, then conclude the happening sock hop with a party filled with music, more dancing, and a cutthroat game of musical chairs.

When the Landers burned in 1920, it could have been the end of the theatre's 10-year run as one of Springfield's top vaudeville stages. Instead firefighters from four stations, an asbestos curtain, and a fire-retardant buildup of applause on the wood ensured that the show went on?despite soon switching to the silver screen. Then, in 1970, the historic building began yet another history-making chapter when it became home to the Springfield Little Theatre, which switched the venue's focus from "talkies" to plays. Today, audiences passing through its lovingly restored Baroque halls take their seats to watch one of the eight productions the SLT puts on every year.

Every instructor at the Conservatory of the Ozarks has a degree in his or her respective artistic domain?either music, drama, or the visual arts. But beyond that, the staff has a passion to share art with people of all ages, from young children to senior citizens. During private lessons, instructors work closely with students on their specific artistic goals, and they don't require students to have any previous experience or know every classical composer's favorite ice-cream flavor. Conservatory of the Ozarks nurtures creativity at studios in Anderson and Springfield.

When it was built in 1923, The Historic Shrine was hailed as the largest auditorium west of the Mississippi and all twenty of its doubled consonants. But even if it hadn't been so large, the building would be notable thanks to its unique design, marked by red brick walls, terracotta turrets, and colorful stained glass windows. And, thanks to thoughtful renovations and landing a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, the venue's beauty hasn't dimmed in the intervening decades. The Historic Shrine's historic stage continues to host acts both classic and fringe, including circuses, roller derbies, and even a surprisingly under-attended Elvis concert.

At The Hangout Sports Bar & Grille, there's no shortage of bar space: servers slide drinks across a main bar that stretches more than 60-feet. Another, albeit less expansive bar intersects the room lengthwise, enabling visitors to set down their beers and hamburgers as they shoot pool or rest in between thumb wars. Owner Barbara Ghan–who swung open The Hangout's doors in December of 2012– engineered this setup. She even converted an adjacent garage into extra space for her bar. The result: a roomy, but welcoming area to watch sports, listen to live music, and, well, just hang out.
