Would you happen to know someone (or be someone) who offers poi or fire-staffing lessons around CA's south bay region? I'm dying to get back into the hobby, but driving from Redondo to Santa Monica (where most instructors I've found are located) is not appealing at all. Hate the 405. Hatehatehate. Er. Doesn't have to be a professional performer, either - just someone who's familiar enough with most tricks to be a good teacher. Anyone? Anyone?

Makeup lessons for my girlfriend

My girlfriend admittedly struggles with makeup, so her routine is quite simple. Can anybody in the New York area recommend a great place to learn how to apply makeup, get makeup tips, and purchase makeup in person with a stylist. I am looking for a business, stylist, or salon in Manhattan. Excellent customer service is key and somewhere they will take the time to teach (willing to pay for lessons) here how and what makeup to apply and not something like going to Macy's to the makeup counter. Open to paying for lessons, makeovers, etc. Any ideas?

Would it work to RE-learn Piano AND learn Violin?

Given that I have a somewhat substantial history playing the piano, how difficult would it be to take up lessons for the piano again after years out of practice AND start, for the first time, lessons on the Violin? How beneficial would such "cross training" be? How difficult would it be to find a teacher who could guide me on such a hybrid path? Other Thoughts? [more inside]

What do you think would be a good, short demonstration that gives kids some hands-on experience and that would also blow their minds? [more inside]
