Editorial Review of The Galaxie

In a galaxy far, far away (ok, Avondale) is Galaxie, a multi-medium class and workshop space that offers tutelage on a variety of offbeat and insane topics, but particularly dancing and the fine arts (like the fine art of book-binding). Other classes focus on Body Work and Martial Arts, and they even have a general 'Spring Break Camp' for kids. Galaxie's outstanding mission is to provide a world of inspiration—from teacher to pupil and back again—to adults and children alike, and a means of expression to allow that inspiration to take root in the real world. Via music, movement, fine art, health and general well-being, Galaxie aims to provide a service for the people of Chicago, a means for bettering their lives in incredibly genuine and significant ways. Doesn't that just warm your heart?

According to the website, if you have an idea for a class or a workshop that's brilliant enough, they'll use it. No word back yet on our "Sleeping in on Weekends" class idea, but our fingers are crossed.

Classes: Workshops include Pulp Fiction Figure Drawing, Balboa Dancing, Laughter Yoga, Bookbinding Basics and Stage Combat (all between $15-$35). Classes (typically six weeks long) include Charleston Performance, Honky Tonk 2 Step, Tap Class, Dance Fitness, American Comics and Manga Studio, Silkscreening and Introduction to Stained Glass (all between $50-$185).
