At Embody Pole Fitness, shimmying and spinning does more than make for a good performance, it also inspires self-confidence. The studio’s certified instructors lead women through an eclectic series of classes that lift spirits while toning bodies.

Favoring small group swimming lessons targeted to all ages, The Aquatic Zone's instructors are trained in the Aquatic Concepts, Inc. method, and use positive reinforcement to teach beginning swimmers the basics of water comfort, body balance, and movement. Once budding amphibians have gotten their foot-flippers wet, they'll try out various strokes and other swimming must-knows such as wall kicks, breathing patterns, and psychic communication with sea life. Lessons are available for children as young as six months and are offered at multiple skill levels for every age group. The goals at each stage are clearly presented and taught, ensuring that the time spent in the pool is always productive and goal-oriented. Awards such as toys, certificates of completion, and surgically implanted gills are bestowed upon students when all the elements of a particular level are mastered. Sessions typically last a half hour, and the saltwater chlorination pools keep water clean without irritating eyes or skin.
Founded on a mission to forge local educational partnerships and provide community enrichment through music, the non-profit Corona Symphony Orchestra treats Circle City ears to everything from choral classics and opera, to film scores, pops, and original pieces.

Mejia, eardrums will be enamored by Pietro Mascagni's "Intermezzo" from Cavalleria Rusticana, Felix Mendelssohn's fourth symphony Italian, and guest bassoonist Jason Artz's solo in Concerto for Bassoon, by Nino Rota. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so deal holders need only bring their Groupons to the will call 15 minutes before show time to enjoy a diverse sampling of Italy's sweetest symphonic sounds.
