The instructors at L'Ru Studios—all of whom have undergone professional training or held careers in the dance industry—aren't afraid to mix things up. They lead a range of classes where fusion is key. For instance, in pole dancing and salsa, they combine cardio and strength-training exercises with sensual movements to create fun and unique fitness experiences. They even blend disciplines into entirely new styles—their vertical barre course mixes pole tricks with ballet techniques. For even more unconventional workouts, they lead circus and aerial yoga sessions that combine acrobatics with flexibility-boosting poses. In addition to offering private parties and lessons, they host workshops and class series designed to build a repertoire of dance or circus skills for use in full routines.

Though their curriculum is broad, their philosophy remains focused. They strive to cultivate a judgment-free area for guests of all fitness levels, builds, and ages. This ideology of accessibility and acceptance surfaces in their small class sizes and supportive attitudes.

The first Improv comedy club had virtually nothing to do with comedy. Broadway producer Budd Friedman founded the now legendary franchise in 1963 as an intimate spot for performers to eat, drink coffee, and sing along to piano ditties after their shows. Soon after, the club?s first comedian, Dave Astor, performed on a whim to try out new material. The stand-up set was a hit and led to the venue?s eventual transformation into a full-blown comedy club. New York?s hottest comedians would do nearly anything to be featured on the Improv stage; for instance, it's rumored that Lily Tomlin hijacked a parked limousine in order to make a stunning entrance when first meeting Budd.

A recent addition to the respected chain of Improv comedy clubs?where comedic heavyweights such as Andy Kaufman, Jay Leno, and Jerry Seinfeld first started working the stand-up circuit?Denver Improv lives up to the reputation set by its preceding locations by hosting a full calendar of well-known comics and promising up-and-comers. Audience members can fuel laughter with pub grub such as potato skins and pulled pork sandwiches, all while sipping a cocktail to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table.

Walking through the front doors and taking in Pilate's Aligned's soaring ceilings, graceful curves, and exposed brick walls, clients feel rejuvenated. The sight of light spilling onto hardwood floors and Pilates Reformer equipment says everything: this is a place to reshape your body. At this traditional Pilates studio, certified instructors lead members of all skill levels through mat and reformer classes, helping them to sculpt long, lean muscles, build core strength, and move with the fluid grace of a roller blading gazelle.

Besides building a fitter body, Pilates classes can play a significant role in injury rehabilitation. No one knows this better than Pilates Aligned founder Cara Resser. The former NYU dance student first came to Pilates while recovering from a broken back. Over the course of two years, Cara practiced Pilates under the guidance of Kathy Standford Grant, a former disciple of Joseph Pilates who was once an injured dancer herself. It was through Kathy's gentle guidance that Cara regained the lost core strength and alignment she needed to continue her dance career, and ultimately inspired her to teach Pilates in addition to her work teaching dance and movement studies at Naropa University.

Root Yoga Center's owners created their studio to give clients a space to explore their metaphorical roots by examining their physical, spiritual, and emotional bodies through yoga practice. This goal is reflected in the studio’s philosophy, which emphasizes balance, encourages beginners to take risks, and focuses on the healing powers of yoga epitomized by the now-famous "Kiss the Boo Boo" pose. From Vinyasa to Forrest and Anusara Flow, many yoga modalities are practiced in the studio depending on the class session’s teacher and difficulty level.

Every teacher at Root Yoga Center is an experienced yogi and puts the school's philosophy into practice during regular classes or supplemental practices such as qi gong, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling. The instructors’ schedules are packed as well: classes take place all day, every day, and the staff routinely hosts community events and workshops.

Nobody should have to suffer through a workout, say the fitness pros who helm Studio Thrive. So, to make exercise as enjoyable as possible, they design group classes that are fun, social, and suitable for all skill levels. Most instructors bring an extensive dance background to the classroom, filling classes such as Zumba and TRX. Personal-training sessions often center on functional-training tools such as TRX suspension straps and kettlebells, both of which foster flexibility and core strength. In addition to designing highly customized workouts, certified personal trainers perform body-composition analyses and fitness assessments to track their clients' progress.

When they're not leading classes or personal-training sessions, Studio Thrive's staffers host private Zumba parties in the spacious studio, lined with oversize mirrors, a polished wooden floor, and a cobalt-blue ceiling. Upon request, they can also bring Zumba sessions to offices, apartment buildings, or painfully quiet libraries.

Every performer has a different goal. Recognizing this, the teaching staff at Academy of the Arts-Denver (each a professional in his or her respective field) designs all of their lesson plans around their students' individual goals. These highly personalized plans shape the approach to the school's age-specific, professional and recreational group acting and vocal classes. The teaching staff also uses their 75 years of accumulated experience to focus on talent development, whether students want to break into the business, or perform for the joy of it. Private lessons help build proficiency in guitar, bass, drums, and music production. Though lessons focus on specific technical training, the teachers encourage creative experimentation no matter the genre. Former students have established careers in TV, Broadway, Film, and Music. As they learn, Academy of the Arts-Denver's students are also encouraged to take part in rehearsals and performances.
