Najia has inspired audiences with her sensual Middle Eastern dance in Egypt and Jordan, as well as in restaurants, nightclubs, and Pearl Jam?s preshow. Building her diverse dancing resum?, she pilgrimages to the Middle East for two or three months each year to continue researching dances, garner inspiration for her Philadelphia Bellydance company, and make her passport more colorful. She calls upon all of her twirling know-how to lead series of four weekly classes, in which students learn to shimmy, hip drop, and send veils fluttering through the air or weave together basic moves for complex choreography. On the fifth week after class sessions, students meet for a confidence-inspiring Goddess Night that awakens inner beauty through dance workshops, vegan treats, and performances as guests mingle bedecked in veils, gems, and outer adornment.

While the scoring may be faster and the tunes louder, Wynnewood Lanes still maintains the laidback atmosphere it had on its opening day in 1962. At the 24-lane alley guests mow down pins and snack on pizza at The Beer Frame Lounge. As weekend evenings fade into night, live DJs start blasting tunes through the sound system, inspiring guests to dance under the alley’s glowing neon lights. Simultaneously, a fog machine fills the room with a haziness that confuses bowlers into thinking karaoke singers are really the ghosts of long-gone rock 'n' rollers.

Seven days a week, First Position Dance Arts offers a swan lake's worth of dance classes for both adults and children. Under the tutelage of the studio's graceful guides, students will take on the fearsome foes of rhythm, balance, and poise through a well-coordinated attack of box steps, chasses, and pops/locks. Adult class options include ballet, modern/jazz, hip-hop, choreography, and even a dance history and culture class (click here to read descriptions). This year, First Position Dance Arts is also offering Zumba aerobics courses, which forge fitness through music based on salsa, merengue, calypso, and other styles.

John Morris made his fortune in iron and then, with the help of his sister Lydia, turned to a far more delicate medium: exotic plants. Starting in the 1880s, the duo traveled the world in search of specimens to bring back to their Philadelphia home. That formidable collection blossomed into the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania after the siblings donated their estate to the University of Pennsylvania in 1933.

Their carefully manicured English-style gardens, complete with swan pond and azalea meadow, now also belong to the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors today stroll winding footpaths among 13,000 plants, hailing from 27 countries; there's a prominent Japanese influence in several areas, including the Japanese Hill and Water Garden. Stately trees dot the property, including trident maple, Engler beech, and Bender oak?the latter of which researchers believe may predate the Morris estate by more than 100 years. And some notable plants are kept inside: the Victorian-style fernery encases tropical fronds and trickling waterfalls in a balmy paradise of glass.

Children especially flock to the Garden Railway, where G-scale model trains chug through a miniature garden, passing buildings made entirely of natural materials by skilled chipmunk carpenters. The Garden Railway runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and on weekends through mid-October. They and their minders also tend to enjoy scrambling across wooden bridges suspended high above the forest floor to get a bird's-eye view of the arboretum at the Tree Adventure.

Ever since its first location opened in 1994, very rarely is there a quiet moment at J.D. McGillicuddy's. Crowds watching the Phillies cheer and groan in unison, and members of bachelorette parties dance around groups of old friends meeting for a drink. The only time the noise dips is when the staff brings out plates of the house's flavorful pub food. Wings, burgers, pizzas, and nachos fill the menu, with East Coast twists such as Old Bay seasoning and jumbo lump crabmeat. Each spacious location has also been known to host special events, from DJ-spun theme nights and pub crawls to Easter breakfasts.
