Hard-rock juggernauts Five Finger Death Punch give audiences four for flinching on their Share The Welt tour, a high-octane evening of nail-driving metal and chugging aural concrete. Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with its gold-selling debut, The Way of the Fist, Five Finger Death Punch has scaled the charts and the musical food chain, gulping its competition like a possessed Takeru Kobayashi. For the tour in support of its latest effort, American Capitalist, the gang enlists an entire posse of heavy hitters. Massachusetts metal mavens All That Remains, fresh from melting soles on the Vans Warped Tour, bludgeon audiences with an arsenal of hits, and hardcore shredders Hatebreed share unkind words as they haze the speed of sound. Adding power-chord crunch to the show, Fort Wayne’s Rains sprinkles audiences with raw and emotional sonic sleet.
Nola Van Alstine believes that students learn to dance best when classes combine technique with imagination and a fun, carefree atmosphere. She and her supporting staff of in-studio pianists and instructors—many of whom commute from Manhattan—create this type of environment with a low student-to-teacher ratio that also allows them to pay ample attention to each participant. Their class curriculum includes parent-and-child dance classes for little ones to explore movement for the first time and pre-dance classes that prepare preschoolers for more skilled practice in tap, jazz, ballet, and hip-hop classes, offered for kindergarteners through teens at Dance Adventure.

The 43rd season of the Greenwich Classic Film Series runs from February through May and will treat modern audiences to film classics from the '30s–'70s. Each movie is preceded by an informative introduction from an esteemed speaker, who returns after the film to smack serious film-science into the brains of each popcorn-munching audience member. Each speaker then engages newly educated audiences with a lively Q&A session in which cinema enthusiasts can inquire, "What else was that one actor in?" and, "So the knife symbolized Dadaism, right?" Peruse the schedule for a full list of screenings. The genre-spanning roster boasts the austere Marx Brothers tragedy Duck Soup as well as the wacky comedic stylings of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca. While each membership card grants viewers access to either Monday- or Tuesday-night screenings, members may attend movies on their noncard showing night or pass membership cards to friends (with advance notice) for no extra charge if scheduling conflicts related to soccer practice, hair washing, or senate votes should arise.
