Ample lighting casts a bright, safe glow over the dozens of storage lockers that line the wide paths at Mr. Storage, where an electronic gate safeguards a fleet of storage units that range in size from 5'x5' to 10'x30'. The secure, locking doors to each storage unit open to unveil cavernous spaces large enough to shelter furniture, boats, and RVs. Customers can retrieve their belongings 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and on-site security continuously monitors the facilities. To further assuage moving woes, staffers can equip visitors with supplies such as boxes, dollies, furniture covers, and sofa-sized teleportation chambers.
Angie Acosta, founder of Queen City DanceOut, has a simple motto for her students: "If you're moving, you're doing it right." This encouraging, low-pressure attitude attracts people of all ages to her dance-inspired fitness classes, which meet at 18 public locations. Angie and her instructors aim to make exercise feel like a celebration and a refreshing break rather than a dreaded routine. To this end, their classes incorporate intuitive dance moves and invigorating music. DanceOut, the signature course, blends genres as diverse as swing, hip-hop, and reggae into a workout, relying on repetition and basic choreography to keep everyone grooving. Other highlights of the curriculum include the Latin rhythms of Zumba; the Dance Impact class, which fuses dance and kickboxing; and JamStrong, a mixture of core-conditioning, dance, and fun.
Community is a central aspect of every DanceOut class. As pupils practice their twirls, they can follow both the teacher and the Jam Crew—a team of regulars who help make the steps easy to follow and can assist fellow dancers. In addition to group workouts, instructors host skill workshops such as Booty Bootcamp, where attendees learn rump-shaking techniques and how to turn any chair into a rocking chair. They also put on performances and lead private classes for special events and parties.

Heartfelt notes from Bottled Up Emotions let loved ones know how much you care. Here's how it works: participants fill out a simple questionnaire with personalized messages to their special someones, which can be as succinct as "Be mine" or as specific as ?Tax evasion is a serious offense.? The Bottled Up team will then send out those messages for a Valentine's Day arrival. At the end of the year, the team also crafts festive Christmas messages for children and family members.
