Sailing Camp

Submitted by Corrie Sahling on Mon, 05/11/2015 - 3:42pm

Boating may not normally top the list of favorite Colorado recreational activities (thank you, landlocked state), but your child can still get a shipshape lesson in sailing on Evergreen Lake. Campers ages nine to 16 will learn everything from the necessary knots and different points of sail to how to dock and perform a capsize and recovery. By the end of the week, your kid will be a full-blown skipper. Mon, Wed, Fri 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Head to the mountains for the dance festival that the New York Times called an "event of prestige, history and startling ambition." Tony Award-winning tap legend Savion Glover kicks off the 26th year with his jazz quartet, followed by the style-bending Dance House: Ballroom and Dance TV Remix, a night of solo performances and live interviews with dancers from a variety of genres, including rhythm, ballet, hip hop, ballroom, and contemporary. Days, times vary.

Whoever says women aren’t funny will be proven wrong (again) at this uproarious night of comedy and competition. More than six Denver improv teams—made up entirely of women, including comedians Bre Forkes and Amy Marty and their respective teams—will compete for the most laughs and a spot in the 2016 Athena Project Arts Festival. The price of your ticket includes sips (choice of wine, well, or a draft drink), snacks, and laughs.

Imagine Dragons

Grammy Award-winning rock outfit Imagine Dragons writes radio-friendly songs that incorporate synth-pop, colossal drums, and emotionally charged vocals. This tour takes its name from the quartet’s sophomore album, Smoke & Mirrors, which debuted in February to lukewarm reviews. Nonetheless, Imagine Dragons remains among the most popular touring acts, turning alt-rock into catchy, electronic-infused stadium anthems. Mon 7:30 p.m.
