For six weeks, Spartan Fit Center's FitBody challenge plunges participants into group fitness classes focused on burning calories and building strength. The immersive program offers exercisers both nutritional guidance and accountability. Spartan Fit Center's instructors also teach drop-in fitness classes such as kickboxing.
The 9-hole, par 31 layout of The Falcon Golf Course introduces players to a links-style design characterized by rolling terrain and pesky knee-high grasses outlining the fairways. As a shorter sibling to the flagship courses at Hawk Hollow, the course allows beginners to experience the hallmarks of a Scottish-style course—few trees, deep bunkers, and deep rough—without subjecting them to extreme length or geese that honk in Scottish accents. More seasoned golfers, meanwhile, can use the course as an opportunity to hone short game skills across four par-fours and five par-threes, while taking care to avoid the water hazards that come into play on six holes.

Backed by more than 35 years of dance experience, Kick It Out! Competitive Dance director Denise Krumm leads her team of instructors in coaching students from kindergarten through adulthood in dance styles such as pom, jazz, hip-hop, and lyrical. Classes run the gamut from casual lessons to achievement-centered classes that result in travel to various Michigan competitions. In addition to more traditional dance forms, the studio also offers Zumba’s dance-party workouts, which get bodies moving with Latin-inspired moves that are more fun than tangoing with a treadmill.
The instructors at Seung-Ni Fit Club lead group weight training, aerobic kickboxing, boot camp, and core focused classes. The gym's Body Challenge blends all four of the above classes with a nutritional-counseling program, creating an intensive four-week full-body exercise regimen.

Professional dancer Tiffany Russell's early career saw her gliding across some of the world's most prestigious stages, winning applause with her nimble footwork in productions of My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, and The Wizard of Oz. When Tiffany and her family settled in Lansing, she had trouble finding a dance studio with the scheduling flexibility she needed as a parent and the challenge she craved as an artist who trained with the Russian Ballet Academy and the Broadway Dance Center.
She subsequently founded Spartan dance and Fit Center in 2010, where adults with hectic work schedules can shimmy in anytime for drop-in ballroom classes, and kids can find plenty of opportunity to study pirouettes and greco-roman swan wrestling in after-school ballet classes. The center's esteemed chorus line of dance teachers is well-versed in a multitude of performance styles, enabling wide-ranging instruction in dance varieties that include hip-hop, contemporary, and lyrical.
A division of Michigan State University's College of Music, MSU Community Music School operates under the belief that “music dramatically enhances the quality of life.” Here, students of all ages and skill levels immerse themselves in this philosophy as they exercise teamwork in group rock-guitar classes, learn the history of the ukulele, or prosper through developmental challenges during music-therapy sessions. The school’s staff of expert instructors also helps students reach their individual musical goals, whether they want to master the jazz trombone or pursue a career as a bedroom alarm clock.
