Arts Are For All Ages' aim is to bring classical music to people with restricted mobility and to help young musicians find outlets for their art. More than 28 young musicians performed for six senior communities during the inaugural season in 2009. Now, young musicians bring a variety of musical instruments and give live classical concerts on a regular basis for elderly neighbors who otherwise could not attend arts events.
"You are smart. You are nice. You are pretty. You are uniquely you." This is the mantra at Viva La Girls Spa & Club, where beauticians aim to increase kids' confidence and expand their brains, too. They can perform an array of treatments at their perch within Glam Spa Lounge or travel to a location of the client’s choice to doll up youngsters with nail art, facials, and glitter makeup. Spa soirees make kids feel like movie stars, princesses, or CIA agents disguised as princesses with beauty services packaged with add-ons such as a pink limo service, candy buffets, yoga lessons, and lip-gloss-making stations. Lessons in etiquette and cooking are also available, and the Viva La Girls club keeps youngsters engaged with books, field trips, and community service.
Emily and Philip Vendemmia look after their students by wrangling a massive schedule of more than 72 classes per week spread over three locations. Bolstered by a strong team of certified Bikram yoga instructors, the duo guides students through Bikram’s 90-minute routine, consisting of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Instructors crank each studio’s practice space to a hot and humid 105 degrees to help pupils’ muscles safely sink into deep, healing stretches and purge harmful toxins from the body. Each of the standing and seated poses is designed to work every muscle, ligament, and joint while sending freshly oxygenated vampire food to the organs to help support health and fitness.

THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."
