In 1962, founder and director Milton C. Anderson’s original incarnation of The Young Americans was as a show choir that went on to perform on renowned stages, such as the one on The Ed Sullivan Show. As he saw more and more schools cutting funding for their performing arts programs, he began holding workshops for school-age children in 1992. Today, these courses have spread across the country and into Europe, Australia, and Japan.

The Young Americans World Tour Summer Camp has become a fixture in the Omaha area at the Midland University, and earned a feature on The Morning Blend in 2011. During both day and overnight camps, aspiring performers immerse themselves in arts-laden workshops and classes, rather than spending their summer days frying eggs on the sidewalk. The Premier Day Camp gives kids a general overview of the performing arts, while the two overnight camps focus on Hollywood and Broadway performing. All camps culminate in a final performance, during which campers can amaze their family, friends, and imaginary family and friends with their newly honed skills.

Zaggora's founder Dessi was scrambling. She needed to lose a little weight before her wedding, but none of the weight loss products she used seem to move the needle. Eventually, she took matters into her own hands, inventing her own effective method for slimming down. Zaggora's multi-layer capris, tops, shorts, and blazers put the heat naturally emitted by the body during exercise to work burning more calories. A 2012–2013 study conducted by ETScience at University of Southern California showed users wearing Zaggora used less energy to achieve high cardio levels and burned anywhere from 6–18% more calories and than those wearing standard exercise clothing.

Made from a comfortable bioceramic material, the shorts' ThermoFit technology smoothes thighs and other dimple-prone areas by warming body tissues and increasing their metabolic rate. This process boosts energy expenditure before and after exercise, and aids in eliminating cellulite-causing toxins.

Five beginner knitting classes at The Yarn Shop will take fledgling yarn spinners over all the knitting basics—knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, ribbing, and more—as they complete their first scarf. The cost of all materials is covered, including a light or bright wool yarn and size-eight bamboo, circular needles. Additional supplies are available for purchase; the shop carries a full line of knitting and crocheting supplies and enough yarn to fill the scalps of a race of giant Raggedy Ann’s. Help is always available for projects, which many people bring to the shop to work on as they socialize and weave the names of disloyal latch hookers onto their tea cozies. Enjoy a dessert and specialty coffee or tea from The Yarn Shop's Pink Sheep Cafe. See the website for class schedules and pricing.

DeVetter Fitness

The trainers at DeVetter Fitness don't believe in quick fixes. Their ultimate goal is to outfit clients with the know-how to maintain a healthy lifestyle outside of the gym and their influence. Through group boot camps and personal training sessions—which meet at their facility, local gyms, or at the client's home—they educate pupils on exercise fundamentals while holding them accountable for attendance. This two-pronged approach benefits guests of all backgrounds, from active athletes to first-time push-uppers.

Rather than intimidate their patrons, the staff tries to forge a partnership that inspires both parties to progress. An online network facilitates communication between trainer and trainee, provides responses to workout questions, and logs meals less messily than using diary pages as placemats. The boot-camp programs meet both indoors and out, and can include nutritional guidance to complement strength and cardio routines.
