State Street Ballet's lithe dancers gracefully pirouette to classical masterpieces during performances modernized with special effects and digital technology. The season's first show, Starry Night, celebrates Vincent van Gogh's art in a multimedia performance that juxtaposes art, music, theater, dance, and text from the post-Impressionist's recovered Twitter feeds. Choreographed by celebrated dancesmith William Soleau, the ballet aims to mimic the flow of oil paint across a canvas through dancers’ movement as videos project a backdrop of collaged paintings and letters. The surfaces of the recently renovated Granada Theatre are also draped with art, from Moorish-inspired geometric patterns on the golden walls to decorative niches imbued with Old World grandeur.

Once a costumer for TV shows including House and Weeds, Tami Macala switched careers midstream when she discovered the art of creating mosaics, according to a Santa Barbara Sentinel profile. She started mosaicking everything from fireplaces to fountains to other, lesser mosaics, eventually landing high-profile projects at the Florida Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Arby?s restaurants.

After more than a decade of working as a professional mosaic artist, Tami opened the Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Art (SBSMA). At the school, Tami and guest artists from near and far teach how to trick out tables with colorful shingles, coax gently luminous Mexican smalti into intricate patterns, or fuse glass for even more complex designs. Students can pick up tools and tiles at the SBSMA supply store and drop by during lab hours to work on independent projects.

CorePower Yoga’s instructors guide students through creative yoga classes that meld movement, breathing, and music into entrancing routines to energize the body and mind. Much like a butler with a teleportation pod, they welcome students at studios across the U.S., with locations in more than 10 different states. During the signature CorePower yoga class, teachers lead students through dynamic, Vinyasa-style flows with demonstration and verbal cues, helping pupils to tone core muscles and cultivate balance.

Most classes convene in a 90- to 95-degree room, which intensifies stretches, bolsters coordination, and melts stress. To foster full-body strength and cardiovascular health, some yoga workouts include the use of free weights to pump up heart rates.
