Missus Potts specializes in funneling creativity through the fingertips. In an airy purple and turquoise room, families can gather their supplies and unleash their imaginations on a piece of pottery. Tall bookshelves support a selection of plates, mugs, flowerpots, and figurines. Artists grab their favorite piece, find a spot at a table, and let the 70 available paint colors flow, drawing everything from lost Picassos to storybook scenes onto their 3D canvases. When the artwork is complete, a studio worker will fire the clay piece, encasing it in a hardened glaze to ensure the paint lasts as long as it is cherished.
In a whirlwind of colorful scarves and vibrant music, the instructors at Art/Dance Academy guide students through the dances and folkloric traditions of Eastern Arabic countries.

The team teaches all levels of dance, and they also sell zills, hip scarves, and veils so students can fully immerse themselves in the performance traditions.

Check the studio's class schedule, whose flexible nature makes it a role model for students, and drop in to any five of the studio's 90-minute limb-limbering sessions, from beginning yoga to power yoga to balanced flow. A gentle yoga class (offered at 8 a.m. on Wednesday) introduces students to low-impact postures, and an early-morning dawn patrol class (offered at 5:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) allows students to start their day bendily before entering the stiff, rigid environment of corporate America, with its stodgy executives and rigor mortised receptionists.
