DANCE & FITNESS
Recently had your heart stomped on, dragged through
the dirt, and hung out to dry? Well, grab it off the
clothesline, dust it off, then head to Bachata, a style
of dance from the Dominican Republican that could
best be described as artful dirty dancing. It’s set to
music about cheating or leaving partners, but it’s
surprisingly upbeat. Plus, once you’re grinding on your
new dance partner, you’ll forget all about the other
schmuck. Perth Town Hall, Sep 30.
If your blood pressure rises the second you step
into work, and you regularly fantasise about punching
your boss, we suggest – no, we insist – you call up
Zen Pilates. The Perth Pilates studio brings classes
right to your workplace, and Piloxing, a hybrid of
Pilates and boxing, is the perfect pick to sweat out

Vintage Hair How-To.
Macramé Wall Hanging.
Exceedingly Good Pies and Tarts.
VINTAGE HAIR HOW-TO
If your idea of glamour skews more Monroe than Minaj,
you’ll love this class from Vintage Valley blogger – and
all-round adorable human – Ally Moschini. Although
retro hair can look off-puttingly laborious, she’ll show
you how to nail vintage looks in five minutes flat, with
the more patient working up to the pin curl and the
Gibson Tuck. Skillsmithery at Studio Bomba, Sep 6.
If your chakras are more misaligned than a wonky
Word doc, get down to this class in the rolling hills of
Kalamunda. The experimental workshop teaches you
to understand the seven main chakras, and how to
balance them in your life. The class is followed by
a guided meditation so you get clarity on how to fix
the formatting of your life. Joy Sanctuary, Sep 9.
Trip to Paris? Planning on eating more than a Royale
with Cheese? You’ll need to brush up on your dinner
party etiquette then (hint: a six pack of beers under
your arm won’t cut the Dijon). This class, led by experts
French Topics & Co, is part of Arty P’Arty, a workshop-
themed cocktail party. Perth Town Hall, Sep 30.
FOOD & WINE
EXCEEDINGLY GOOD PIES
“I don’t want to be a pie. I don’t like gravy,” said the
Scouse-voiced hen in Chicken Run. But for pies this good,
she might have reconsidered. Learn to make flaky rough
puff pastry, chocolate sweet shortcrust, and savoury
shortcut pastry, and then bake it into a range of pies, like
chicken and leek, or pear and almond.
Matters of Taste, Sep 23.
Redefine rolling with your homies in this class, which
teaches how you to master sushi rice and make that
bamboo sheet yo’ bitch (sorry, took the gangster
thing too far). But seriously, you’ll love being able
to bust out sushi rolls for quick healthy meals or
dinner party additions. Serving suggestion:
sake bombs and Coolio.
The Cooking Professor, Oct 3.
NEW YORK NOSH
If you’re an avid Perth Guide reader
– and you are... right? – you might
remember us obsessing over
Crack Pie, a cake that originated
at New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar
but is so addictive it spread right
over to Perth. Well, now you can
learn to make the ridiculously rich
cake yourself, plus NY-style chicken
wings and burgers to boot. Go on,
have a crack.
Matters of Taste, Oct 6.
your aggression. In fact, proponents say the opposing
exercises can balance your emotions and energy. Let’s all
take a deep breath now... Zen Pilates, ongoing.
Yep. Just what it says. But if you can get past the
LOL-reflex, you’ll leave this class with more self-love than
the Kardashians – who, incidentally, are some of nude
yoga’s biggest fans.Twisting Peacock Yoga, ongoing.

Give your phalanges some love with this ring-making
class, using the popular bezel stone-setting technique.

the perfect finger-candy, go ahead and dub yourself
Lord of the Rings. We won’t judge. Fremantle Arts
Centre, Sep 13-20.
CREATIVE VISION BOARD
If you’ve picked up a self-help book recently,
chances are you’ve noticed a common theme:
vision boards. But how exactly do you make
a whimsical grown-up collage that 1) connects
with your deepest desires, and 2) doesn’t make
you feel like an idiot in the process? The answers
lie in this intimate class, which helps you shake off
limiting beliefs and self-doubts to pave the way
for a much, much brighter future. Bring a friend for
a discount. Joy Sanctuary, Oct 24.
Loving the new Pottery Barn on Hay Street? Try
doing pottery yourself instead. The meditative
activity is not only good for the soul, you’ll end up
with some pretty sweet stuff to show for it, too.
