A childhood peppered with basketball, football, and volleyball couldn't keep Mary Murphy out of the ballroom after she was struck by the athleticism of the sport while watching a championship performance in her early twenties. She began to compete around the world, eventually slowing down enough to found Champion Ballroom Academy in 1990 and finally teaching there full-time in between stints on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance.

Mary has plucked like-minded instructors for her studio, some of whom created Core Rhythms, a Latin dance-based aerobics program. Many of the other teachers are competitive-dance champions or black belts in hula hoop. Aside from running a flourishing dance studio, Mary's palpable passion for the art form has also driven her to play a leading role in San Diego's Chance to Dance program, a curriculum that introduces school kids to the artistry and strength-building foundations of dance.

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.

Every Saturday night at the Sheraton Suites Houston, someone gets murdered––while dinner guests watch. Mystery dinner theater may not be a novel concept, but it's safe to say that the crew at Mystery Cafe does it right, as evidenced by their 2009-2013 streak of winning the United States Commerce Association's Houston Award for Dinner Theatres. Forks clink and brain gears whirr as theatergoers dine amid the action, where one of the cast members gets killed and the rest of the off-the-wall characters try to figure out whodunit. As the plot twists and turns like a Slinky on a waterslide, audience members take note of the evidence and submit their suspect and motive on a solution sheet. Whoever sniffs out the culprit is named Super Sleuth and garners a prize. The dress code is dressy casual, meaning anything from a prom dress to jeans is okay, but the mermaid tail should stay at home.

The historic fountain at the east end of Balboa Park’s El Prado pedestrian walk is a lure for visitors, thanks to its majestic and cooling spray. But a quick turn to the right is the entrance to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, another local draw. For the young, it’s a two story, interactive science playground. For the young at heart, there are sophisticated displays, rotating exhibits and the new, NanoSeam IMAX Dome Theater. Films splayed across the 76-foot wraparound screen plunge viewers into the depths of the sea and out into space, through jungles and between skyscrapers around the planet. Resident astronomers also create new shows monthly, using the latest SkyScan System software. The café near the entrance takes care of hungry visitors with a modest menu, a few tables indoors and patio seating in front of the fountain.

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.

Inspired by "the genius and innovation of Mozart and the masters," for 25 years Mostly Mozart has gathered together music-lovers, world-class musicians, and composers. The latter category doesn’t just include the group’s namesakes, child prodigy Li’l Mikey Mozart and his uncle Wolfgang, but a vast range of musical thinkers making pieces that feel as exciting today as Mozart’s did in 1770. A summer music festival (Southern California's largest) and chamber music concerts throughout the year comprise programs that specialize in fascinating juxtapositions: modern neuroscience with classical sonatas, for instance, or hummable songs from the British Isles with their soulmates from Italy.
