  • Street Food Cinema
    Spanning spring through the fall, Street Food Cinema rolls out more than fifty events in eleven different locations over 27 weeks. This showcase highlights the greatest hits of the silver screen and the LA food-truck scene, as well as music from emerging music artists such as The Rebel Light. When the gates open, guests spread blankets on the grass and pop open coolers. Live bands play until dusk, when crowd-pleasing movies such as Fight Club and The Sandlot light up the big screen. Meanwhile, a rotating food-truck schedule assembles a diverse curbside lineup, which might include fresh seafood from Cousins Maine Lobster or the gooey delights of The Grilled Cheese Truck. Their events also feature movie-themed games projected on the big screen for audience participation. Street Food Cinema's eclectic assemblage of food, music, and films has picked up attention beyond the park's bounds, snagging mentions on NBC4, We Like LA, and The Washington Post. Other videos of the events in action can be seen here. It's also become known for its philanthropic work: each year the organization supports several charities.

  • Dance Doctors
    New York-native John Cassese's motto is, "If you can walk, you can dance." The celebrity dance instructor and choreographer's own quick-stepping career began at the tender age of 10, jumpstarting a passion that would eventually take him careening across the stages of off-Broadway productions, nightclubs, dance competitions, and the occasional monster-truck rally. It wasn't until he relocated to Los Angeles that an agent dubbed him "The Dance Doctor," and soon after, he found his fleet-footed prowess and teaching abilities in high demand amongst production studios such as Sony, Paramount, and 20th Century Fox. Between choreographing a Charleston dance sequence on AMC's Mad Men and singing at the 50th birthday parties of Billy Crystal and Wolfgang Puck, John leads a team of instructors as they teach celebs and everyday Tinseltowners the finer points of styles ranging from ballet to hip-hop. Despite all the fanfare, his biggest praise comes from his work with soon-to-be-married couples, who seek his advice on everything from basic steps and song selection, to the length of the post-cake-cutting conga line.

  • Boot Camp 'Morning Crunch'
    Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape. She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.

  • Hot 8 Yoga
    With top-of-the-line air purifying equipment and special floors, Hot 8 Yoga debunks the myth that hot-yoga studios are stuffy and smelly. Its filtration system scours air with UV rays before pumping oxygen into the classroom, keeping the studio fresh and germ-free, and students breathing easily. Beneath yogis' feet, ploy-extruded matting keeps the air smelling sweet by wicking away moisture and odors atop shock-absorbent PVC floors. These measures enhance pupils’ practice during more than 100 weekly hot-yoga classes. With the heat cranked at varying degrees to boost flexibility, metabolism, and detoxification, sessions range from classic hot yoga to yoga sculpt, which incorporates free weights. Yoga barre, on the other hand, combines ballet, yoga, body sculpting, and cardio for a comprehensive workout that makes you sweatier than wearing a vinyl spacesuit in a sauna.

  • M.i.'s Westside Comedy Theater
    Beyond a façade of black-painted bricks blasted by a bright-red sunburst, M.i.'s Westside Comedy Theater's laughter authorities train up-and-coming comedians in the art of forcing other people to laugh. The theater opened in 2009, 11 years after six comedians from the touring group Mission Improvable moved from Massachusetts to Chicago to continue training in the art of the extemporaneous. Now, more than 50 members strong and offering more than 350 performances a year, Mission Improvable helps students hone their comedic instincts during weekly classes, performances, and pie-throwing workshops. Instructors have imported a grounded, distinctly Chicagoan comedic sensibility to the West Coast, building improv courses on Viola Spolin's seminal, creativity-unlocking theater games and standup classes on students' own experiences and observations.
