A rotating roster of seasoned comedic pros and up-and-comers has graced the stages at Hyena's Comedy Nightclub's three locations. These featured jokesters typically perform weekend sets, leaving the space free for aspiring comics during weekly open-mic nights. The venue has also partnered with cyber comedians for a defensive-driving course. Since not much in the rules-of-the-road canon is intentionally funny, Hyena's helps keep Texas drivers safely and legally behind the wheel with digital, state-approved, all-original tutorials written by comedians.
Before John Lintner began leading jogging tours past the sculpture garden at the Dallas Museum of Art and the gothic splendor of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, he was bustling with tour groups along the Mississippi River bluffs in Memphis. Aside from being an invigorating workout, running is his favorite way to charge into a new city’s atmosphere and history. So when he moved to Dallas, it was only natural that he’d keep his stride and offer tours of his new home.
As John sees it, his style of “sight-jogging” offers several advantages over bus, walking, or swimming tours. The expeditions get people off "the boring treadmill" and help them keep up their exercise routine on vacation so that later they can "enjoy [a] steak or tex-mex without the guilt." During the tour, John's interesting facts and offbeat anecdotes about the Deep Ellum neighborhood and Dealey Plaza keep the mind energized during 4- or 6-mile runs. The storytelling is crucial: "Without his narration, I couldn't make it past mile three," a Washington Post reporter confessed after attending a pair of John’s Memphis runs.
John describes the pace of his sight-jogs as "laid-back, not push, push, push”; they accommodate most skill and fitness levels. That’s partly because he himself hasn't always been a runner. Though he's now a seven-time marathon finisher, it was only a few years ago that he began running as part of a battle against a substance addiction he picked up in a stressful nursing job. It allowed me to channel my anger into something awesome,” he told Runner's World, who profiled his turnaround. If anything, he says, running has become even more essential to his life today: it’s "a way of life, a philosophy . . . It's very real. I sweat, and I feel it, and I love it."

Both former professionally performing cirque artists, Kimberly Adele and Dylan Keith wanted to share the joys of flight and mastering the wide-ranging and eclectic cirque arts. To that end, they train aerial apprentices at CirqueFit, blending aspects of music, dance, and theater with soaring circus maneuvers. Kimberly and Keith emphasize proper safety throughout all their programs. Their class environment of trust and positivity makes for an engaging socializing forum and an upbeat venue for children—some as young as 3 years old—where they can develop their coordination, confidence, and ability to best any bear balancing atop a circus ball. Students of all ages can swoop and spin on the lyra or spiral down aerial silks during aerial cirque-arts classes or hone their balance skills in acro-yoga sessions, which rely on partner poses to form living sculptures. In addition to imparting high-flying skills, each class rewards students with fitness benefits, which tighten cores and tone physiques as guests hoist their own bodyweight above cushioned mats.
