  • Dance Manhattan
    Owners and veteran dancers Elena Iannucci and Teddy Kern cultivate a lively community at Dance Manhattan during more than 80 weekly classes that break down social styles ranging from salsa to charleston. Like hotheaded detectives, students in group classes swap partners regularly, a practice that helps every student develop friendships while challenging their leading and following skills. Both Iannucci and Kern exhibit a particular flair for swing and have developed a faculty that includes International Lindy Hop Championship–award-winners Evita Arce and Michael Jagger. Master classes and workshops focus on partnering tricks and difficult styles such as the Argentine tango. Wedding sessions help engaged couples enjoy a graceful, relaxed first dance as well as a elegant resolution for their first dance-fight. All students are automatically enrolled in a program that offers discounts within the dance community. Instructors foster a fun, welcoming environment by leading weeknight practices and special events that are free to program members and are occasionally punctuated by niceties such as roses, cupcakes, and emoticons. To that end, the studio hosts Friday-night parties and monthly open houses fueled by live DJs, as well as artists who rent space for performances and practice.

  • Dardo Galletto Studios
    Native Argentinians and New Generation Dance Company directors Dardo Galletto and Karina Romero have been teaching tango classes for more than a decade. Romero first stepped on a dance floor at age 6, eventually honing flawless tango skills—the same ones that landed her numerous theater, television, and film gigs—while studying under masters of the art in Buenos Aires. An actor by age 12, Galletto initially began studying dance in his hometown of Cordoba to supplement his theatrical career. The dancer eventually realized that tango, ballet, and modern dance were where his passions truly lay, leading him to move to New York in 2001 and found his genre-melding troupe two years later. The team's latest project, Dardo Galletto Studios, was founded in 2010 to acquaint newcomers with the art of tango. Assisted by a fleet-footed faculty and armed with an uncanny knack for enunciating through the rose in their teeth, the duo lead classes and events seven days a week for dancers of all experience levels.

  • Bellyqueen
    Though they hail from all over the world, the instructors at Bellyqueen are united by their passion for belly dance. Their dedication to the Middle Eastern art—and their eagerness to educate others about the empowering, often misunderstood dance form—led co-founder Kaeshi Chai to established their own bellydancing company and school in the East Village. Kaeshi's enthusiasm has caught on—since opening in 1998, Bellyqueen has gained acclaim for its unconventional workouts welcoming participants of all sizes and skill levels. Today, the bustling studio continues to teach traditional bellydancing techniques while incorporating world-fusion styles. Experienced instructors guide guests through the sensual movements, encouraging them as they practice footwork, breath, and presentation. When they aren’t fine-tuning their routines to eyeball-enticing perfection, students can watch Bellyqueen’s professional dancers perform at weekly Djam NYC shows at Jebon and special events.

  • Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation
    After decades perfecting their craft, the framers of Skyframe & Display attained what could possibly be the holy grail of home-decor endorsements—in 2011, Martha Stewart Living revealed that SkyFrame is one of its “go-to framers” for photo shoots “because of their expansive selection.” Skyframe’s list of clients also includes museums, galleries, and apparel companies, which seek out the company's framing experts because of their ability to create museum-quality work with projects as simple as framing a polaroid or baby’s first mug shot. When customers come to the newly remodeled store, they can build custom projects from thousands of mouldings, acid-free dry mounting, and UV-blocking glass and plexiglass. Finished works can then be held in Skyframe’s climate-controlled storage space until clients are ready to pick them up or have them delivered.

  • Carnegie Hall
    Among the world's most storied venues, Carnegie Hall has hosted the finest performers since philanthropist Andrew Carnegie founded it more than 120 years ago. Finished in 1891, the structure was planned just before the advent of steel-frame construction, necessitating a solid masonry design that insulates its halls from outside noise and lends the exterior its red-brick charm. The hall's architects traveled to Europe during the planning stages, carefully noting the acoustic qualities of the continent's best venues while finding themselves put off by the overwrought baroque stylings of many of the buildings. The resultant design eschews flowery ornamentation for a spare, elegant Italian Renaissance style, coupled with peerless sonic resonance. The Hall's centerpiece—the historic Perelman Stage—is renowned for its acoustics and Italian design rife with white walls, gold fixtures, and graffiti tags from Michelangelo.
