The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

Eschewing the over-the-top costumes and writing that typify many other murder-mystery dinners, The Dinner Detective San Diego’s cast of improvisational actors blends in with audiences, holding secrets tight to their chests while steering each night’s tension-filled storyline. After a diner is found murdered, a resident detective helps lead the investigation, allowing guests to interrogate one another with Tickle Monster tactics to distinguish the culprit among the crowd of fellow diners and dissembling thespians. Multicourse meals keep bodies well fueled during spurts of crime-solving intuition, and a prize basket awaits the gumshoe who comes closest to solving the case.

During a weekly schedule of more than 75 classes, they impart high-flying skills in disciplines including aerial silks, static trapeze, aerial hoop, acrobatics and hand balancing.

Even when a ballet imposes technical challenges and its reputation raises expectations to near-impossible levels, California Ballet's dancers and artists don't shy away. Much of the company's repertoire reads like a 19th-century Top-10 list?Midsummer Night's Dream, Coppelia, Swan Lake?yet it makes each staging uniquely its own, either by revamping the choreography, casting The Nutcracker with upwards of 200 students from its dance school, or creating sets and costumes that would dazzle an "Ooooh" out of a royal guardsman.

A nonprofit celebration of bold theatrics, Moxie Theatre sinks its teeth into tantalizing topics throughout its sixth season lineup, colorfully summarized by the season's overarching theme, "In Celebration of Bad Girls." The five-production season includes Eleemosynary, a witty portrayal of family functionality across three generations of women (running September 1–September 26); a classically frightening rendition of The Crucible (October 30–December 5); and The Toughest Girl Alive, an autobiographical musical detailing the nearly true story of Candye Kane, who's been, among other things, a punk rocker, teen mother, adult-film star, and cancer survivor (mature audiences only, January 13–February 6). Rounding out the season are two additional productions, Or, and Ten Cent Night, in the spring and summer. For complete listings, descriptions, and schedules, click here.
