From Pokémon to Salsa: Pike District has Classes for Everyone

Home to diverse cuisines, stores for every fashion trend and entertainment through the night, Pike District’s vibrant community offers an array of educational and recreational classes for every age and interest.

Bring your friends to a Paint & Wine event at Huckleberry Fine Art and brush up on your dance moves at a salsa lesson at Rendezvous Social Dance & Fitness. Know a kid obsessed with Magic Cards? Invite them to the gaming workshops and tournaments at Dream Wizards or find a class at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington from boys lacrosse to ceramics to gymnastics for tots. After you have taken your dog for that early morning walk, you can leave your favorite pet at Your Dog’s Friend and attend a free workshop on pet parenting. If you are the crafty type, check out the Woodworkers Club and shape your own side table in just two weekends or tap into your creative side with home decorating and sewing classes at G Street Fabrics and beginner beading at Accent on Beads. For your inner DJ, Omega Recording Studios has a full curriculum for audio engineering or check out Pike District’s music and cultural center, Strathmore near Grosvenor Metro, for education programs for children, adults and budding artists alike. When you are done and fully inspired, relax and learn about the latest craft beer while listening to a local band at the newly opened 7 Locks Brewing on Wilkins Avenue.
