At Painting & Vino you can swap your standard movie or date night for something more creative. During classes, a skilled instructor will walk you through the process of creating your own work of art to bring home with you. No experience is necessary, but if you're feeling inspired, instructors not only welcome but encourage creative expression. This means you're free to follow along with the class, or see where your inspiration takes you and paint anything you like. For a little extra fun, all events offer food and wine or cocktails for an additional fee. Some venues even allow you to BYOB (though customers should check with the venue first). One thing is guaranteed, though: at the end of each session, everyone has a piece of art ready to take home and hang.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction and demonstrations.

The idyllic building in which The Little Red School of Art and Music resides represents the homey community feel of the school as a whole. For two decades, founder Carolyn West has worked hard to maintain that atmosphere, allowing kids to express themselves in music and art classes, which range from private guitar lessons to small-group painting and cartooning classes.
