Jessica has a design degree, a love for found objects, and a plan to change the world. That's why she founded Trashed, a critically acclaimed studio where visitors create jewelry and decor items from recycled materials. Classes fall into three main categories: Sip & Style sessions are BYOB, meaning you’re welcome to bring your own friend named Bruce; kids gather for eight-session Litterbugs courses; and Friday mornings are reserved for Coffee & Crafts. The studio also can be used for private events and cupcake-fueled birthday parties.
Whether they're leading three-year-olds in creative movement, or coaching teenage ballet stars, the instructors at Motion Dance Studio have two priorities: building skill and building confidence. They've been tutoring dance students for 24 years, and their curriculum encompasses styles such as jazz, tap, hip-hop, and musical theater. Throughout the year, their dancers aren't only mastering steps?they're also performing them at the studio's annual June recital, as well as during community and holiday shows.
There's no room for idle hands at Sign and Doodle. That's because the early-learning center focuses on age-appropriate sign language and art classes for kids aged 3 months to 8 years that keep brains and bodies active. Kids of all abilities learn hundreds of signs during American Sign Language classes, which include storytelling, songs, and spelling. For budding Picassos, the center offers art classes that make use of many mediums and always kick off with a creative circle in which pupils sing and dance to the week's theme.
At Mid-South Boxing and Fitness Academy, trainers lead authentic boxing classes, jujitsu sessions, and workouts that combine martial arts and CrossFit training. The Fight-Fit program teaches self-defense techniques and striking form in the course of a workout that also draws on CrossFit exercises.

In the 15 years since its founding, Fitness For Her has amassed a well-rounded collection of gym equipment and group classes in an encouraging studio where women jump into routines specifically designed for them. Ladies can work up calorie-burning sweats on cardio equipment, such as treadmills and bikes, as they take in favorite shows beamed in over the TVs or watch for cameo appearances by their favorite numbers on the heart-rate monitors. A weight-training area eases limbs into reps with Cybex machines, free weights, an abdominizer, and a multistation jungle gym to ensure no muscle group starts to feel left out. For a communal foray into fitness, personal trainers spur on groups to shake off calories in Zumba and Cardio Pilates classes, kindling a full-body burn in the aerobics studio. Postexercise, up to 10 weary frames can sweat out excess toxins or barbells lodged in pores in the dry-heat sauna. With senior classes, membership discounts for mother-daughter pairs, and free childcare services, the gym welcomes women at every stage of their sojourns into healthy living.
