At Elegance in Motion, friendly and talented dance instructors encourage movers and shakers of all ages to step into the limelight during a range of dance lessons. From within the spacious 2,400-square-foot studio, teachers guide singles, couples, and groups through ballroom, rhythmic, and social dances, such as the waltz, samba, and lindy hop. Once a week, the studio opens its door to social gatherings, allowing currently enrolled students to strut their stuff with teachers, students, or their own shadows.

Hall of Famer Dino Ciccarelli spent 19 years in the NHL. Four of those years—including 1992–1993, one of the best seasons of his career—were as part of the Detroit Red Wings. Though he's no longer schooling goalies, Dino still thrills sports fans across the city with his trio of family-friendly restaurants. Inside each, HD projection screens and more than 40 big-screen TVs team up to deliver the action from all the big games. While cheering on their teams, visitors dive into Angus prime beef burgers, slabs of ribs, and the signature sauce-slathered chicken tenders known as stingers. Like Dino when he's on the ice or putting a quarter in a toy-vending machine, these lightly floured morsels are ready for anything—you can order them on their own, or have them stuffed them into tacos or a wrap for easy transportation.
