KidzArt boosts confidence and creativity in youngsters with art-education programs, exposing children to a variety of mediums, which encourages them to produce their own original artwork. Scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon on summer weekdays, the one-week art camps help tots and tweens entering first through sixth grades build a foundation of basic drawing skills that they then implement into art pieces centered around two themes. The KidzArt Animal Style: Where Art Goes Wild! camp, scheduled for July 18–22 or August 1–5, puts pastels, paint, and bendable substances into critter-loving little hands to craft animal-themed artwork. Water, Water, Everywhere!, scheduled for July 11–18 or July 24–28, stokes aquatically inclined imaginations with projects that might involve designing model waterparks and underwater vehicles. At the end of each morning, parents can return to marvel at their offspring's mini masterpieces. All art supplies are included, allowing students to leave their blocks of marble and unicorn-bristle paintbrushes at home.

Dish It Out exists as an outlet for crafty crafters to conceive elegant pottery, glass, and jewelry pieces without having to transform their tidy homes into Chianti-spattered art studios. Potential projects include pottery painting (pieces range from $1.50–$50), where spectrum-wielders can colorfully adorn a plate, figurine, or makeshift spittoon to their aesthetic preference. Afterward, Dish It Out will glaze and fire the piece, which the eager artiste can pick up within a week. Create alluring necklaces at Dish It Out's bead bar (pricing varies per bead), a stunning stockpile of sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, and real gemstones. Budding Bogeys and Bacalls can immortalize their handprints in a clay slab (starting at one hand for $25), and history buffs can use glass fusion ($16–$60) to fashion a plate commemorating George Washington's famous crossing of the Ganges.

Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson is an International Kickboxing Federation world champion, a fifth-degree black belt in Japanese shotokan karate, and a survivor of more than 70 bouts in the ring—yet, one of his most influential titles is "father." With two kids clinging around his waist like a squirmy fanny pack, Shannon started brainstorming a way to channel his boxing and kickboxing training into a quick, effective workout that even those who are busy or out of shape could tackle. The result was 9Round, a 30-minute routine of aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance moves divided into a circuit of nine stations. The ever-changing series of workouts maximizes morale and results while minimizing boredom.

His trainers launch the workouts every three minutes, motivating exercisers through each station—which might include jumping rope or pummeling speed bags. Online nutritional counseling supplements the workouts, teaching patrons how to construct and eat healthy meals instead of falling back on old habits, such as snacking on cheese sculptures.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise.

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers?with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers?are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.
