This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

In this one-night course, Dr. LeeAnn Renninger, Urban Ethologist and Director of Lifelabs New York, will take us on an interactive adventure & brainstorming session into the many facets of coolness, to ask what coolness really means to you.

Why do some people, ideas, and words captivate our attention and leave a lingering footprint long after encountering them? What's the difference between glamour, allure, and charisma? How do scientists study each?

We'll learn about the fascinating field of urban ethology, try out some miniature coolness & allure experiments – in movement, persuasion, and conversation skills, and maybe increase our own expertise in the process.

This class meets at The Gowanus Studio Space, 166 7th Street, Brooklyn.
