Dancers as young as 2 years old leap, twirl, and learn at Dance to Evolve. The mobile dance academy's classes take place in 3 local studios, making it easy for parents to drop kids off nearby. Courses include ballet, hip-hop, and tap curricula, as well as parent-child classes that encompass a variety of genres. Dancers perform at school's annual recital, and they can continue taking classes until they're 12, the age when a human's third foot grows in.
The multiple Tony Award–winning La Jolla Playhouse stacks each spectacular season with audience-enchanting plays that often matriculate to Broadway and off-Broadway success.

Directed by the playhouse's artistic director Christopher Ashley, fresh from a Tony win for the musical Memphis, this play follows a comedic culture clash in small-town Scotland as an American businessman breaks ground for his dream golf course—and digs up bodies in the process.

What?s now known as The Comedy Store was once called Ciro's, a nightlife hotspot in the 1940s and '50s. Playing host to glitzy stars and shadowy mobsters, the club's history is shrouded in rumors of mafia assassinations and untimely deaths. However, the joint buried its seedy past by converting to a comedy club and helping launch the careers of such legends as Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, David Letterman, and Dave Chappelle. The younger La Jolla location lets laugh-starved patrons bask in the same high-powered comedic atmosphere as its progenitor.
Nestled among flowering trees, lush shrubbery, and vibrantly blooming gardens, the historic Rose Creek Cottage hosts intimate weddings and events in an enchanting setting. The 90-year-old English tudor cottage accommodates up to 75 guests for all public-commitment-related events, including wedding ceremonies, receptions, anniversary parties, and vow-renewal ceremonies. In the cottage, couples can declare their love for each other beneath a vaulted ceiling as guests look on from rows of pews; outdoors, groups can get down on the garden patio or attempt to hide from relatives behind the gazebo's columns.
The jazz standard ?Flying Home? brought Savoy Swing Club?s founders together in 1993 at a dance camp, after which the group of friends began meeting regularly to keep the choreography fresh in their minds. The troupe?s dedication to the lindy hop and other jazz-era dances gradually blossomed into the club?s current calendar of professionally staffed classes, workshops, and dance events. Classes grouped by skill level progressively transform students with two left feet or three right toes into fleet-footed hoofers, imparting classic moves that help nurture a sense of rhythm and speed. Each week, students of all levels can take part in Savoy Mondays, a decade-long tradition, as DJs and a single trumpeting swan provide background music for dancers to sharpen their moves. And on the first and third Fridays of every month, the basement of the local Bagel Deli becomes the Blues Underground, where a free introductory blues lesson is followed by a late night of dancing.
