Dennis PaSamba Dance Company's instructors believe that dance is a universal language, and that all bodies can become fluent in the art of storytelling with a little practice. They educate both first-time and practiced dancers, building on what students already know while emphasizing passion and perseverance in the toe-tapping arts. During group classes, students learn hip-shaking combinations and suave Latin dance styles such as salsa, cha-cha, and bachata. Men’s and women’s styling classes help students to master alluring arm, shoulder, and nostril movements. In addition to group instruction, the studio also offers private lessons to help dancers to vault the learning curve with one-on-one attention and special classes for engaged couples looking to make a lasting impression during their first twirl as husband and wife.
At NU:U Laser Lipo, a team of laser technicians perform noninvasive treatments designed to whittle away excess inches from the body. The i-Lipo body-contouring treatments target the site where unwanted fat is stored. Using low levels of laser energy, a chemical signal is created, forcing fatty acids out of the cell membranes and into the tissues that can actually use it, such as the muscles, ligaments, and that kidney that no one invites to parties. The end result is often a silhouette slimmed up to 4 centimeters in a single treatment session, without surgery or downtime.
