At Janna’s International Dance Studio, owner Janna Beaufait draws upon more than 30 years of Middle Eastern dance experience to teach shimmies from across the globe. Students of all ages and skill levels can chisel their earthly edifices in yoga or Zumba classes, practice the seductive art of belly undulation, or learn how to navigate dance floors in a range of styles. Like tandem unicycles, ballroom, salsa, and hula classes are designed to help couples move together with precision and grace. Ballroom classes explore a specific dance style such as swing or cha-cha over the course of four weeks; in addition to practicing footwork patterns, students learn how to lead or follow their partner. Salsa classes teach New York–club-style swivels and shimmies, and six-week hula classes bolster romantic bonds as partners swivel hips in unison and gaze into one another’s monocles. Fueled by traditional Polynesian music and modern tunes, each session imparts flirty hand and torso movements through a simple choreographed routine.

Amber bamboo flooring meanders through the center, undergirding private rooms that house pampering body-therapy sessions that range from honey facials and body polishes to deep-tissue and Thai massage.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
