Half Moon Bay Kayak
Croquet is not just for mad queens and chi-chi garden parties anymore at this nonprofit club. Members are hardcore about wickets and all-white attire, but nonmembers can join free sessions the first three Saturdays each month or plan group parties ($15/person, $150 minimum); kids are welcome.
Join a class in tango, take up the congas, get crafty with your kids or create a protest poster at the printmaking studio at this happening Latino cultural center. Teachers are friendly and participants range from niños (kids) to abuelos (grandparents). Check the online calendar for upcoming gallery openings; don't miss Día de los Muertos altar displays in November.
Step out and find your niche at this nonprofit Mission dance hub, featuring contact improv, dance jams and classes in styles from Afro-Haitian to Bollywood. Check the website for dance showcases in the 140-seat theater, plus events and guest-artist workshops ranging from beginner taiko drumming to dancing in stilts.
