The Ultimate Dance Zone readies two-steppers of all ages for the spotlight with full lines of dance apparel, accessories, and footwear. Since 2003, the business has aspired to be a one-stop shop for dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders alike, offering the latest styles by brands such as Capezio, Eurotard, Nike Cheer, Gia-Mia, and more. If, while navigating the colorful clusters of leotards, tights, and bags, customers are unable to find what they’re looking for, friendly staffers can order it for them. They also provide professional shoe fittings for burgeoning ballerinas who like to ensure their feet don’t need whittling down to a more manageable point before making a purchase.
Regardless of which of the hundreds of Target Portrait Studio locations you meander into, you can always count on a similar experience. Tucked into Target retail locations throughout the nation, each studio boasts a staff of professional photographers, premium lighting equipment, and advanced digital cameras. The seasoned crew takes pains to customize photo sessions to suit each customer's vision, setting up desired backgrounds and props before guiding families and high-school seniors through a mélange of poses. Afterward, customers will work with a professional to personalize their portraits with different special effects and styles, such as black and white or sepia tone. They then pick up their physical portraits at the studio in 7–10 days. If they don't feel like holding their breath that long to see the final products, they can access the images in an online gallery within 24 hours of the session, at which point they can order extra prints for gifts, collages, and greeting cards.
The Spa 25 welcomes visitors for a quiet and relaxing retreat from the hectic outside world. In the elegant spa, staffers beautify each area of the body, waxing away excess hair, applying facials to remove dead skin, and giving muscles a melting massage to complement intense workouts. The hydrating foot treatment brings spring to the step, and the full-body polish treatment exfoliates customers from head to toe and buffs in a coat of hydration cream to dramatically increase their Blue Book resale value.
