Young toes yearning for terpsichorean know-how learn the ropes in Deborah Stage Door’s preschool rhythm class, as preschoolers romp their way through a combination of tap and ballet, learning balance and coordination along the way. More experienced dancers increase skills and decrease the chances of losing a street fight to the Sharks with a smorgasbord of ballet, jazz, tap, or hip-hop strutting courses taught in both the summer and fall. In addition to dance, Deborah Stage Door’s college of musical knowledge nurtures budding songbirds with performing-arts classes including show choir and acting.

When two practiced athletes engage one another in the Brazilian art of capoeira, it’s a sight to behold. At first blush, the practice seems to be some sort of nonviolent martial art with aerial kicks and backflips, though with closer inspection, its underlying influences of acrobatics, dance, and rhythmic problem-solving become obvious, as the two capoeiraistas lock minds in a state of fluid improvisation, rather than competition. The history of the medium intertwines with hundreds of years of Brazilian culture, originating with slaves that were brought from Africa to harvest sugar and tobacco and blossoming into an outlet for cultural expression and political protest. Baz Michaeli founded The Michigan Center for Capoeira in February of 2007 as a way to introduce the sport to his community and preserve its cultural traditions, garnering attention from press outlets such as the Farmington Observer and Jewish News. Baz is certified as a capoeira instructor as well as a ACSM personal trainer, and challenges newcomers of every ability level to improve their flexibility, endurance, and mental strategizing by participating in a class. The center assembles at the Franklin Athletic Club and Troy Dance Studio, and interested participants should take a look at the calendar for an idea of upcoming class times and locations.

From dinosaurs to demons and zombies, humans have conjured nightmares from plenty of terrifying monsters across the centuries. Within the four-story Erebus—the haunted house that doubles as mad scientist Dr. J Colbert's deadly time machine—all those frightening sights lurk beneath one roof. Setting "a high bar for Halloween entertainment," raves The Huffington Post, the former Guinness record holder for largest walk-through haunted attraction now encompasses a trail more than half a mile long. The house's ghoulish inhabitants don't keep to themselves—mutant gorillas grab legs, corpses fly from caskets, and creatures infest a muddy swamp that visitors must trudge through. For Erebus' highpoint of horror, more than 10,000 objects cover unlucky guests who step inside the aptly named Buried Alive room. As The Macomb Daily reports, the house's 48 "time slice" cameras simultaneously snap 180-degree pictures of patrons' terrified reactions, as well as creepy clowns photobombing from every angle.
