After joining the National League's West Division in 1998, it only took four seasons for the Arizona Diamondbacks to become World Series champions, making them the fastest expansion team to win it all in MLB history. Since then, the D-backs faithful continue to fill the stands of Chase Field, a 48,000-seat retractable-roof ballpark constructed for the team's inaugural season. The widest LED board in Major League Baseball replays crucial saves and high-flying hits in 136'x46' of high-definition glory, and just beyond the fence in right-center field, a swimming pool allows fans armed with foam noodles to whack opponents' home runs back into play. During the fourth inning of every game, kids can interact with D. Baxter the Bobcat in his upper-concourse Den equipped with slides and batting cages.

With more than 20 years in the business, Wagner Dance & Music is a mecca for dance instruction. Classes are held in 3,600 square feet of space and studios outfitted with high-tech sound systems, expansive mirrors, and “floating” maple-wood floors. Students ranging from 2 years of age to seniors can learn moves from genres such as tap, ballet, hip-hop, and jazz. Additionally, university-trained instructors offer private lessons for individuals interested in learning to play the piano and guitar—the standard acoustic or kleenex-box variety.
Studio manager, instructor, and musician Michael Jewell lives through rhythm. He sought ballroom dance as another means to express himself through music, and throughout more than a decade of mastering fancy footwork, he’s come to truly believe that anyone can learn to dance. That’s why he and his team of instructors welcome singles and couples of any experience level to their slate-blue studio's gleaming floors. They teach swing, latin, ballroom, and two-step styles in group and private lessons, and host biweekly social parties, during which students can show off their newly acquired grooves while mingling with other dancers. The instructors also take their students on group trips and “Out On The Towns,” where they can practice their moves in public settings, rather than putting on more performances in their bedrooms for audiences of teddy bears.
