At Stepz, professional Bollywood dance instructors imbue students of all ages with dance moves inspired by Eastern India. They foster an environment of support and encouragement as dancers soak up fundamental foot positions and learn to express themselves through fluid movements and flowing hand gestures. Students looking to shed excess pounds can speed up routines in one-hour aerobics classes, which lead groups though rigorous dance routines specifically designed to tone muscle.
Improv comedy isn't just about making audiences laugh. It's also a great way for performers to sharpen their wits and reaction time, as well as to overcome public-speaking anxiety. That's why the instructors at Endgames Improv offer so many classes and workshops, helping novices improve everything from group dynamics to scene work to sketch writing. But Endgames Improv's bread and butter is really its jam-packed schedule of comedy shows. Read on to learn about a few of them:
"SF Tonight": During this weekly show, comedians skewer San Francisco's local news stories, using real headlines as their inspiration.
"#ThrowbackThursday": Audience members submit their old photos to Chivalry Club, a long-form improv team, who uses those sometimes-embarrassing pics as the basis for their weekly show.
"Inside Baseball": This variety show is kind of like a comedy smorgasbord, combining the best of local sketch, standup, and improv into one must-see event.
At City Dance Studios, classes are tailored for students with various levels of experience to ensure everyone can enjoy the art of self-expression through movement. Lessons introduce students to
a diverse array of dance styles ranging from classical ballet and jazz, to contemporary hip hop and exotic Bollywood, and West African. Each of the five spacious studios (they range from 900 to 2,400 square feet) are equipped with sprung hardwood or Marley floors and are surrounded by mirrors, so budding dancers can keep an eye on their form and keep pet parakeets occupied until the class has ended.
