Compared with other areas around California—or the world, for that matter—gravity doesn't seem to have quite the same pull on the students at Free Flow Academy. Inside the training facility, you might see youngsters leaping from wall to wall or teenagers twirling gracefully through the air. Before you lodge a formal complaint with NASA, know that Free Flow is home to an array of hardcore exercises such as parkour, aerial silks, and mixed martial arts. For those looking to burn calories in a more traditional way, the instructors also lead kettlebell and strength-training classes. Its 20-deep team of instructors even teaches more grounded activities such as acting and music, uniting myriad art forms.

Inside Strikes Unlimited's cavernous entertainment complex, players send bowling balls hurtling down 50 gleaming lanes. Whether they're competing in a league or just enjoying the night with friends, bowlers can watch exciting plays on the center's bounty of flat-screen TVs and massive projection screens equipped with a cutting-edge sound system. Three nights a week, the lights dim, the black lights glimmer, and a DJ starts pumping beats for Glow Bowl, an event that blends the challenge of bowling with the excitement of the club.

Just around the corner from the crack of bowling pins, Halftime Bar and Grill fuels bowling and arcade games with juicy burgers made from certified Hereford-beef patties and frosty draft beers. Two massive projection screens and eight flat-screen TVs broadcast the big game, and pool tables offer a diversion from the bowling lanes. The dance floor pulses on Friday and Saturday nights, as live music ushers in a late-night menu. Trivia night and daily/nightly happy hours are among other weekly attractions.

Elliott Genovia fell in love with salsa dancing 12 years ago when he took his first salsa class. He soon became a member of Sacramento's salsa performance team and trained with respected dancers including Salomon Rivera and Ricardo Tellez. Through his education, he developed a cordial, supportive demeanor that helped him to offer dance lessons to aspiring dancers and clumsy police officers to get out of speeding tickets. Elliott opened his own studio, Dancing With Elliott, which eventually emerged from its cocoon to become Genovia Dance in 2010 after he married his dancing partner, Cara, who also teaches at the studio. The two teach both private lessons and group classes to students of all ability levels in the dance styles of salsa, merengue, cha-cha, hustle, and bachata.

With a history stretching back more than 40 years, Circus Vargas wows audiences with dazzling acrobatics and rib-tickling clowns under a giant big-top tent. The show eschews animal performers for human-costumed spectacles, showcasing dazzling feats that only a few dexterous humans and short-circuited cyborgs are capable of. The circus's big top, hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of fabric, holds up to 1,500 show-goers in classic, blue-dyed elegance. Early-arriving guests can take part in an interactive preshow, jumping in the ring with ringmaster Jon Weiss as he leads audience members through tutorials that show how to perform stunts such as juggling, feather balancing, and balancing checkbooks with quill pens.
