  • Charleston Pirate Tours
    Eric Lavender is one of very few men in the world who can show up for work each day in a pirate costume and expect to keep his job. The licensed guide and professional storyteller, who has been featured on networks such as the Travel Channel and SCETV, also has an unconventional coworker—Captain Bob, a chatty blue and gold macaw who perches on his arm. Sometimes aided by other guides in pirate and colonial garb, he introduces visitors to lesser-known aspects of Charleston's more than 300-year history on walking tours to National Historic Landmark buildings. During his signature pirate tour, Eric divulges stories of buccaneer revelry and crimes, such as Blackbeard's harbor blockade, or unveils local spooky legends and pieces of Gullah lore on his ghost and pirate tour. Eric also leads custom walking tours and teaches children about pirate lore and city history through his educational programs. Sabrina Lavender and companion Doozer, a yellow-naped Amazon, are also on hand to guide travellers around Charleston, learning about local landmarks and history.

  • Threshold Repertory Theatre
    "Threshold creates huge musicals in a little theater," read the headline of a recent Charleston City Paper profile of Threshold Repertory Theatre. Audiences will recognize many of the works the company performs from Broadway and beyond, but in its 100-seat black-box theater, even the splashiest showpieces take on new intimacy. “What happens in this space is that the audience seriously begins to blend with the story," previous artistic director Pamela Nichols Galle told the City Paper. Threshold gives patrons direct access to the brains and talents of directors, playwrights, and actors. Before or after a show, guests can get into the theatrical spirit by enjoying beer, wine and snacks from the box office's concession stand.

  • Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Charleston
    The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, 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 cha-cha. 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.

  • "The Nutcracker"
    After training with companies including the Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and the Ballet Russe School, Don Cantwell returned to Charleston with a dream: to share the beauty of ballet with the local community. Decades later, he and Executive Artistic Director Patricia Cantwell continue to do just that at Charleston Ballet Theatre Center for Dance Education, training future generations of dancers and staging dazzling productions featuring guest artists and their own students. Their 2014 Nutcracker sold out two weeks before the production's opening night. Guest Artists including award winning stars Alexey Kulpin, Andres Angulo, Natalie Rossi, Danielle Troyano and others, are joined by Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr, whose innovative work has brought new life to classics including Alice in Wonderland, The Rite of Spring, and The Firebird.
