At Brancée, trained instructors utilize the fun, energetic Brancee dance-fitness system, which strips the core-isolating movements from multiple dance modalities and combines them into a single abdomen-engaging workout. Using methods drawn from Turkish, Egyptian, Indian, and ballroom dance, the team teaches this fluid form of exercise to both adults and children. It can help youngsters overcome their insecurities and adults find an exercise regimen that both entertains them and increases their fitness, unlike traditional gym drudgery or lifting the remote control over and over.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
The dedicated instructors at Kids Love Martial Arts teach children the techniques of self-defense styles such as karate and tang soo do. But they are just as focused on imparting lessons on discipline, focus, and confidence. The studio's websites shares stories of youngsters who were constantly distracted in school or picked on by their peers. The teachers always prescribe the same medicine: a few weeks in Kids Love Martial Arts classes. The physical aspect of the training engages the youthful participants, but it's the less tangible results that can help them positively channel their energy and confidently stare down the karate-practicing monster under the bed.
Teeth are small, strangely shaped structures that can harbor cavities virtually anywhere. That’s why the team at Atlantic Family Dentistry takes a proactive approach to dental care, emphasizing prevention rather than repair. To keep cavities and decay at bay, the team applies bristles and floss, clearing away all traces of plaque and tartar. Dental sealants fill deep gaps to keep out bits of food. In addition to treating patients with the full range of preventive and restorative dental services, the team educates patients on how to stave off future problems, which they can do in Spanish and English.
Rather than simply showing their students how to punch and kick, the dedicated instructors at Sovereign Martial Arts teach them why they’re punching and kicking.

All the while, students strengthen their bodies, burn fat, and hone their coordination as they soak up strikes and throwing techniques.
