  • TheatreWorks San Francisco
    Originally founded in 1970 to give high-school and college students a chance to hone their onstage skills, TheatreWorks dedicated itself early on to promoting new work that grappled with America's changing social landscape. Exploring the experiences of ethnic and cultural minorities, the group built a following throughout the subsequent decades, growing to its present size of 41 permanent staffers, an annual budget of $7 million, and 8,000 subscribers. Its New Works Initiative continues to seek out up-and-coming voices from around the country, helping new playwrights find their footing and prompting embittered older writers to test new pseudonyms.

  • Cheryl Burke Dance
    Cheryl Burke took the dance world by storm in 2006 when she won "Dancing with the Stars" twice, once in the winter and again in the fall. In addition to fame, her performance on the show also netted her two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Choreography. When she's not busy with the show, an acting gig, or a magazine shoot, she still finds time to teach at her eponymous dance studio, Cheryl Burke Dance, which she co-founded with her mother in 2009. The facility features three dance studios, including a sprawling 4,118 sq. ft. studio, as well as a veteran team of instructors, some of whom are National and World dance champions. Together, in private or group settings, they teach nearly 20 different styles of dance, including the Waltz, Rumba, and the Lindy Hop. Once students feel confident enough with their dance skills or the swelling from the surgery to repair their second left foot subsides, they can attend one of the studio's dance parties to show off their new moves.

  • Fox Theatre
    Fox Theatre, originally opened in 1929, has long been established as a venue for legendary performances, earning induction into the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Chuckle chasers flock to the antique theater to absorb the sidesplitting comedic jabs delivered by Joey Medina, who starred in Paramount Pictures' The Original Latin Kings of Comedy alongside celebrated jokesters Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, and George Lopez. Sharing the spotlight with Medina, David Lew channels his time on season four of NBC's Last Comic Standing to tenaciously tickle funny bones, and blossoming funnyman Manny Maldonado coaxes cackles with his uproarious act and PowerPoint presentation about the real-estate market.
