Even when they're against wise-talking computers, most chess games aren't as exciting as the ones that take place at Camelot Days Medieval Festival. The knights, queens, and kings here are all real—or at least as real as you'll find without traveling back to the Renaissance and Medieval eras. During these human chess games, a troupe known as The Royal Chessmen battle it out with swords, staffs, and fists. That's just one of the dozens of entertainment options that take place at Camelot Days Medieval Festival, which packs its grounds with knights on horseback jousting, artisan vendors, musicians, and various eateries.
In addition to watching comedy operas, magic shows, and Medieval games, attendees have a chance to join the spectacle. The festival encourages adults and kids to dress up in family-friendly garb depicting the Renaissance, the Medieval period, or the time when respectable sailors dressed like pirates. Each day, the festival hosts a costume contest, while other guests snap photos and compete for prizes given out to the best shots.
When Ronni Delvalle grabs ahold of one of her mirrored studio's chrome poles, she feels more graceful, beautiful, and self-assured than when she's practicing any other type of dance or fitness. Fueled by a drive to share this empowering form of sensual exercise with women of all shapes and sizes, Delvalle and her a team of female instructors lead a variety of fitness and instructional pole-dancing classes designed to build confidence, tone muscles, and burn calories.
The team also conducts an aerial-yoga course that incorporates soft cloth hammocks suspended from the ceiling, offering a practical alternative to equestrian yoga, which requires students to form downward facing dogs on the backs of speeding Clydesdales.
Body and Soul Dance Theatre has made a name for itself since it twirled onto the scene in 1983. Originally a commercial troupe that performed everywhere from Florida dance clubs to concert halls in South America, the company morphed into a nonprofit in 2002. Since then, it's corralled an ensemble that includes classically trained dancers and former students of the company's classes. Together, these performers create original productions that at times collaborate with local entities such as The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men's Chorus, their co-stars in 2014's Fall Follies.
