Why is the studio's schedule so packed with fitness-tinted dance classes? "Because sweating is fun," explains its slogan. Between yellow-green walls, professional dancers teach kids and adults how to cut rugs and stay fit at the same time. Classes like Zumba, Pilates-infused burlesque, and hip-hop dance classes let on-staff choreographers showcase skills they also employ for special events—customers commission them to polish their wedding and quinceañera dances.
Nestled in the frondescence of a quaint pecan grove, Oma Gruene's Secret Garten welcomes diners to enjoy savory sandwiches and German specialties and absorb a festive garden ambience. Dining duos will kick-start meals with chips and salsa (a $4 value), a heaping pile of corn chips adorned with a spicy homemade salsa. Next, entrees can be chosen from a straightforward menu stocked with local ingredients, such as sausage from a neighborhood smokehouse showcased on the bratwurst plate (a $7.95 value) or in a kraut dog (a $6.95 value). Culinary architects erect turkey-and-swiss sandwiches (a $6.95 value) atop foundations of marble-rye bread, and a Reuben (a $6.95 value) demonstrates the dexterity of corned beef by getting served warm, cold, or mid-handspring. Sweet-teethed twosomes can finish feasts with palatable scoops of Blue Bell ice cream, and then wash down bites with a sweet soda deluge before using empty cups as maracas during impromptu limbo challenges.
A finalist for the 2006 Richard Rodgers Award, Greetings from Yorkville poignantly chronicles the travails and joys of a Midwestern songwriting duo as they move to Manhattan to realize their dream of a life in musical theater. Under the direction of two-time Tony Award–winner Thommie Walsh, real-life couple Anya Turner and Robert Grusecki dramatize the autobiographical narrative with minimal scenery and few explosions, relying on the textures of her voice interwoven with his piano in a tale that “rings true because it is their own” (New York Times). The Brauntex Theatre will host a one-night-only reprise of the original Off-Broadway run in its intimate 600-seat auditorium, feeding families and garnishing West San Antonio Street with a sliver of Big Apple.
