The Bicycle Chain is a chain of specialty bike stores offering bicycles, service, and repair, as well as cycling accessories. These titans of two-wheelers contain full-service repair centers staffed with friendly, knowledgeable salespeople and qualified technicians. Today's Groupon is good for one Tune-Up package, which gives any chromatic cruiser the attention needed to forgo future therapy and remain comfortable for riding. All brakes, shifters, brackets, and bearings, as well as the tire pressure, will be adjusted to the ideal level for riding safely over a vast field of banana peels. Frames and forks will be polished, and chains and gears wiped down and lubricated where necessary. Cranks, bolts, and pedals will be tightened until the bike is ready to be cleaned and polished like Yul Brynner's head. Post primping, The Bicycle Chain's mechanics will advise you of any problem areas, such as a worn brake pad or piece of spinach in your teeth.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Fueled by her passion for performance art, fashion, and choreography, Durham native Anjanée N. Bell founded Bellan Performance Centre as a philanthropic organization, and as a destination for those individuals with interests as diverse as her own. The disciplines and fundamentals of dance weave a common thread through the facility's many endeavors, which include aspirations to emerge as a performance-art community by way of engaging live shows. Off stage, Bellan provides various educational programs and fitness classes that encourage participants of all ages to get up and move, even if they lack the experience and spring-loaded toes of many professional steppers.
