Owned and operated by parent-and-child coaching expert Robin Briskin, the Ark Row Center enriches families through hands-on classes that foster confidence and self-expression. Kids learn to transform wet earth into bowls, vases, or family-dinner-suggestion jars under the watchful eyes of an experienced ceramics artist. These instructors can ensure that kids are creating their crockery correctly since small classes of about 10 kids facilitate individual instructor-child attention. Classes are offered on Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for kids ages 4 through 6 (a $100 value), and from 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. for kids ages 7 through 10 (a $140 value), with the first class session on the first Thursday of each month.
As you might expect, students at Barefoot Movement aren’t required to bring footwear when they take part in up to 40 weekly yoga classes. Yoga classes range from vigorous to restorative variations, and also include sessions for pre- or postnatal moms, barefoot bodywork sessions, and training for prospective yoga teachers.
Aspire Education believes that education is the cornerstone of community. Aspire trains students to attain it through a dual curriculum of private tutoring for students, regardless of their ability to pay, and afterschool study halls and test-prep classes for groups. Professional tutors work with youth in a variety of subjects, including math, chemistry, writing, and foreign languages. But these lessons go beyond basic study sessions—tutors build relationships with students while teaching them about mitochondria and how to craft a persuasive argument. Their primary mission, along with helping kids succeed in school, is to transform them into lifelong learners and to inspire new educators.
For the past two decades, Aspire's community reading-buddies program has also been leading the charge for education by working to improve literacy rates. Through this program, high-school and middle-school students receive pedagogical training and act as one-on-one mentors for preschoolers, blending reading activities and games into regular lessons.

Carefully choreographing everything you say and premeditating each approving nod you nod become exhausting by day’s end. Today’s Groupon will provide an entertaining education in off-the-cuff living with a Friday or Saturday night improv show at BATS Improv for $5. Chuckle your way toward in-the-momentness and improv-ering witticisms.Adams ended this trend when a baby fox ate his notecards during a campaign photo op in which Adams was to award a medal to a baby fox. Without his conversation cards, Adams was forced to speak extemporaneously for the first time in his life, and his audiences howled with laughter due to the off-the-cuff nature off his utterances. Adams’s lack of notecards inspired numerous comedians, whose previous reliance on conversation cards had caused their humor to become stale and predictable. Today, Adams’s likeness hangs in many improv theaters, though not in the White House, where the official portrait of Adams is actually a photograph of a leaf.
