Founded by dancer Judi Sheppard Missett in 1969, Jazzercise and the network that it formed has mushroomed into more than 7,800 instructors teaching 32,000 weekly classes in 32 countries. Much like the opening arguments in any trial, every 60-minute session begins with a gentle warm-up to limber up limbs before jumping into an easy-to-follow aerobic-dance routine. Moves blend elements of jazz dance with kickboxing and the core toning elements of Pilates and yoga. Top 40 hits, jazz, country, funk, rock, blues and hip-hop pluck at brain strings to get bodies energized as sessions transition into a muscle-toning segment performed with dumbbells. Workouts conclude with a stretch and cooldown.
Every service at Geri's Beauty Salon begins with a free consultation and perhaps a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. In its more than three decades of existence, the whimsical salon has greeted visitors with attentive service, a knowledge of diverse haircare techniques, and?probably more recently?a few resident fish and frogs. A quartet of certified stylists transform men, women, and children with custom cuts and styling, and they can remake 'dos by infusing hair with vibrant color or sun-kissed highlights. Working from the opposite angle, the staff also provides therapeutic and cosmetic solutions for thinning hair.
At Anchorage Healthy Smile Center, Dr. Terry J. Preece knows what it's like to be relied on. He once served as the sole dentist on the island of Wrangell, and was responsible for the smiles of the island's more than 1,800 residents. In 32 years of dental experience, the doctor has mastered all aspects of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Today, even though his office is equipped for a comprehensive range of dental care, Dr. Preece demonstrates his commitment to patients by referring them to specialists for issues including orthodontic work or assessing the value of that shark tooth they found outside.
