Tell us about your business. Leap of Faith Dance is a Christian dance studio that offers ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, musical theater dance, pointe, tribal funk, modern, contemporary, and leaps and turns. We also offer non-dance courses in art, piano, voice, Pilates, strengthening and tumbling. We have "Little Dancers" classes for 3-5 year olds, beginning through advanced classes for school-aged boys and girls, as well as classes specifically for adults. Our performing company, "Parables Dance Company" gives our advanced students extra opportunities to use their talents to reach out to our community. What makes your business stand out? _We use all Christian music in our classrooms and performances. However, we welcome students from all religious backgrounds. Our students wear age appropriate, beautiful, yet modest costumes. We perform a Christmas Outreach and Spring Dance Concert every year. Each of these is free to all attendees. All of our instructors have degrees in dance and/or professional dance backgrounds. Our students are taught to be kind and inclusive of others. Rather than the "dog eat dog" atmosphere found in many dance studios, our students are expected to be encouraging to one another. We specialize in ballet technique and stress excellence with humility to our dancers. We have three large dance rooms with floating floors to prevent dance injuries, each with viewing windows._ What inspired the owner to start this business? We started with a small group of home-schooled students who wanted something different in dance instruction. They weren't happy with the music, moves, dress and attitude at schools they had seen. We decided to take the "Leap of Faith" and start a school that would be both excellent technically and spiritually. Since our beginnings in 2000, we've grown to include dozens of classes, students from all school settings and backgrounds, and countless performance opportunities. What is your most popular offering? Our twice a week ballet classes are our most popular classes, closely followed by our lyrical classes. We teach classical ballet technique in an encouraging environment. Our lyrical jazz classes are loosely based on ballet where dancers interpret the lyrics of a song through movement. Beginning and recreational levels of all our classes are open to anyone. Advanced levels of dance require enrollment in regular ballet technique classes. What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer? One of our dads wrote: "I just wanted to send you a note to commend you for the work you have done with our children. The recital this afternoon clearly set a new standard of excellence for the Leap of Faith dancers! I was so impressed. Being a typical guy, I don't normally get excited about dance—it's probably not something I would take any interest in if my daughter was not involved in it. But, Sunday's performance would have captured me even if [my daughter] had not been a part of it. Something has happened (in no small part because of your instruction and passion) to take the dancers to the next level."

Laundry Care isn't your typical wash and fold service. It was started by a stay-at-home mom who knew what it was like to prefer your laundry done a certain way. That's why each load of laundry done at Laundry Care is performed exactly to the customer's specifications?clients can request hypoallergenic products, air drying, or hand washing, or even ask that the laundry pros adjust the water temperature to avoid melting the snowmen on a Christmas sweater. Staffers can also do ironing, with or without starch, allowing customers to cross another item off their list of chores, and the company offers front-door pickup and delivery service to help homemakers save even more time.

A PADI five-star diving facility, Arlington Scuba Center, Inc. first opened its doors in 1972. Since then, the shop's scuba instructors have helped countless divers obtain PADI open-water certification. The lessons start within the facility's classroom and pool and eventually progress to natural locations, such as the five-story bathtub at Clear Springs Scuba Park, so students can complete dives in real-world conditions. Aside from this standard certification, the staff teaches advanced courses in which students can train for search-and-rescue missions or float above the hull of a sunken ship. Back on dry land, staffers man Arlington Scuba Center's dive shop, where they sell fins, masks, and other equipment from respected brands such as Aqua Lung and Henderson.
