The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba.
The humor ambassadors of Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club stock their Oakland Park stage with snickers and snorts as audiences savor the jokes of headlining local and national comedians.

Funny bones flee their ligaments as veteran standup comedian, television actor, and host at Tampa Bay Newstalk 820 AM Artie Fletcher (March 30–31) deposits hefty loads of jokes accrued from 25 years on the road.

Studio 4 Fitness’s personal trainers each boast at least a decade of fitness-training experience. They put their wealth of knowledge to use in prescribing exercises designed to generate the results a client is most interested in, whether that’s building general muscle mass or finally beating his or her boss in the cage-fighting portion of the quarterly review at the office. They hold their one-on-one sessions within the studio’s amply equipped workout rooms, where tractor tires flip past weight-lifting machines and resistance bands stretch the length of the room. In addition to fitness consultations, they offer chiropractic and massage services to help keep bones and muscles aligned and healthy as clients bulk up or lose weight.
