Renaissance Man

Resolve to learn mad skills in 2013


Skip the typical New Year's resolutions, and opt instead for skills that will tickle her taste buds, make her laugh, charm her in French, and sweep her off her feet.

You're not always resolving, but when you do, you prefer these options below.

Tickle Her Taste Buds: Wine Certification Course
Never let a wine list stump you again. Learn wine tasting technique, major wines of the world, and food and wine pairing principles from an advanced sommelier over the course of two three-hour sessions. An exam will be given to complete your certification. The best exam ever.
Sat Jan 19 & 26. Classic Wine Storage, 14372 Proton Rd., Far North Dallas (917-957-8529). $250 for both sessions

Make Her Laugh: Stand-up Comedy Classes
The way to a woman's heart is through her funny bone. Learn the structure of stand-up comedy, how to create original material, conquer stage fright and handle hecklers like a pro. At the end of the six-week workshop you'll perform your new act in front of an audience.
Class runs Jan 10-Feb 14. Dallas Comedy House, 2645 Commerce St., Deep Ellum (214-741-4448). $230/ 6 weeks.

Charm Her in French: Foreign Language Lessons
The international language may be love, but just in case, this course'll have you whispering sweet nothings in French, Arabic, Chinese or Spanish in just seven weeks. She'll be bilingually curious in no time.
Classes begin Jan 14-19 depending on language. Dallas International School, 6039 Churchill Way, North Dallas (972-991-6379). $213/7 weeks.

Sweep Her off Her Feet: Dance Classes
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. But if swing's not your thing, tackle country two-steppin' or ballroom dancing, which includes the fox trot, waltz, salsa, rhumba and tango.
Classes begin Jan 7 or 10 depending on style. The Rhythm Room
Dance Studio, 2714 1/2 Greenville Ave., Lower Greenville (214-228-4454). $60/4 weeks.
