Students are in good, creative hands when they sign up for one of Charmbiance Glass Paint Class' glass-painting classes. MéShelle, the artist behind these classes, is a professional graphic artist and glass painter with years of experience. In fact, she personally comes up with every design her students paint—and there are more than 15 to choose from in total. Once each person decides, MéShelle walks him or her through painting the design on a set of two cocktail glasses.
Men and women are welcome in classes, which are offered at bars and restaurants throughout Wisconsin. No art experience is necessary, as customers will learn techniques from MéShelle herself. Treat yourself to a perfect date night, girls' night, or group activity.
In 1947, on New York City's Park Avenue, the first Fred Astaire Dance Studio—cofounded by the eponymous toe tapper himself—opened its doors to the public. More than six decades later, now boasting schools across North America, the dancing institution still adheres to the legendary Mr. Astaire's curriculum and instruction techniques.
Specializing in social ballroom and competitive dances, the schools' current consortium of professional instructors shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through dance lessons that span from classic ballroom and foxtrot romps to the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. In addition to classes, the studio hosts social practice parties where up to 40 students hone newly acquired rug-cutting capabilities. As foot-charming music blares from the speakers, instructors work to cultivate a lively social setting where each guest can dance, mingle, and surgically correct their second left foot without fear of embarrassment.
