Axé Capoeira Arizona's head instructor, Jay "Camara" Spain, learned capoeira from second-degree capoeira master and Axé Capoeira founder Marcos da Silva. Today, at his Tempe studio, Spain returns the favor to his students, both kids and adults. His specialty is capoeira, a visually enthralling Brazilian technique that consists of kicks, self-defense movements, dance-floor-worthy footwork, and tricky gymnastic moves such as cartwheels, handstands, and eyelash stands. For self-defense tactics solely, Spain and his team also offer Brazilian jujitsu and muay thai classes.

Nestled within 18,500 square feet and designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art's quintet of galleries—formerly a cineplex's five theaters—have hosted changing and permanent exhibitions of art, architecture, and design since 1999. The outdoor sculpture garden features acclaimed pieces such as James Turrell's experiential Knight Rise skyspace and James Carpenter Design Associates' Scrim Wall. After viewing the art outside, visitors can return indoors to explore furnishings and jewelry in the shop or examine work by local youth in the young@art gallery. The museum's Visions Teen Program continues to nurture burgeoning talent, pairing teenagers with visual-art teachers and visiting artists. Adults can also enrich their artistic know-how at lectures and workshops until they are able to draw a perfect circle with a pencil still tucked behind their ear. The museum's lounge fosters artistic communities through events ranging from screenings of international art movies to art-making sessions.

In life and at C3 Kitchen, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. From 7 a.m. onwards, staff begin cooking up healthy dishes to start the day. They put together plates of bagels with cream cheese, lox, and veggies, and layer egg sandwiches with a choice of meat on a buttermilk roll. As for drinks, they don't just pour coffee. Instead, they offer multiple brewing styles and coffee drinks, from french press to chemex to espresso. After the breakfast rush, chefs switch over to hot and cold sandwiches and salads that follow traditional comfort-food recipes such as the roast beef and coleslaw, as well as healthy alternatives such as lemon-dijon salads and veggie wraps.
