As the San Antonio Scorpions warm up in their first season as a professional team, they are setting out to summit the North American Soccer League standings as they battle the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. The game will be their third match of the season and their second on their home turf. Heroes Stadium can fit up to 11,000 spectators in bleacher-style seating, sloped to provide clear views and opportunities to distract opponents with impressive ski jumps. Fans can watch the team dynamic take shape and the star players emerge as the team finds its footing in professional play or observe one of their practices at STAR Soccer Complex—which are open to the public—to get a preview of the gametime action.
Fleet-footed dance instructors Acenio and Lara will release the dance-floor cowboy within you through patience, clear instructions, and encouraging personal support. Even in a group setting, they pace each swish, dip, tap, and jig to the abilities of their clients. Both those accustomed to spinning their partners through the air and those born with two left feet and a tail that has toes are equally welcome. Learn the intimate, sassy swing of the Dominican merengue or the slower, more traditional elegance of the waltz. You can also bring your darts teammate along as a tango partner and entwine your passions in much the same way you accidentally entwined your braces with plastic six-pack rings. More than anything, though, you can have fun dancing and erasing all the self-consciousness that holds you back.
Dancers of all ages have been sashaying, pirouetting, and leaping through the studio at Dance Plus since 1987. Teachers lead classes for all ages and skill levels, from the 2.5-year-olds learning basic coordination in Creative Dance to the adults honing their skills in hip-hop, ballet, and lyrical classes. For those looking for a more fitness-based routine, the studio also offers Zumba classes, which secretly tone muscles by focusing clients on fun-filled dance routines fueled by Latin music. No matter what class students take, they're sure to get the individual attention they need to master the steps thanks to Dance Plus's commitment to intimate class sizes.
Far from the typical movie theater, Alamo Drafthouse subverts the industry standard by offering locally brewed beverages, a rotating snack menu, and an advertisement-free experience. Theater-goers can sip on wine and themed specialty cocktails while enjoying the custom shows that run before the feature in place of ads. Alamo Drafthouse projects first-run blockbusters and cult classics from crisp 35mm or digital film onto the silver screen, as surround sound submerges audiences in the cinematic experience. The theater's enormous shepherd's crook enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy, with the notable exception of fan-centric Quote-Along nights.
