Xplosion Dance Center's full wall of mirrors reflects the opposing purple wall and the row of ballerinas and danseurs in training between the two. A dance instructor with professional experience leads the groups of dancers who can range in age from 3 to teenagers through classes that focus on tap, jazz, or hip-hop. In addition to classes, the instructors also host birthday parties at the colorful studio.
Not all live comedy is contained to Boston’s Theater District. Just ask the folks at Improv Asylum, located in an underground spot in the North End, where local actors perform different sketch and improvisational comedy shows nightly. The subterranean space on Hanover Street hosts 90-minute shows with up to six different actors in each show, performing skits that touch upon family humor, current events and even some adult topics (suggested minimum age for shows is 17 years due to the content). There are nine different shows held here each week, with a cast that interacts with the audience to ensure the authenticity of each show. Best of all, military and student discounts keep the already-low prices at rock-bottom levels.
