The Spa at Commerce Casino ensorcells forms with treatments that sap away stress and improve introductory aesthetics. Revivify tired mugs with the 30-minute Fast Signature Facial, which begins with an in-depth skin analysis that identifies epidermal problems, including dryness, excessive oil, and difficult-to-detect camouflage pigmentation. Pore cleaning unclogs acne-prone skin, followed by a choice of a hydrating or deep-cleansing mask that lets face-bearers customize their rejuvenating treatments. In the therapeutic Swedish massage, skillful digits ease kinked-up bone movers, leaching out achiness and leaving muscles relaxed enough to avenge crushing Twister defeats from arrogant Gumbys. An ionic foot bath finishes off spa sessions, gently coaxing toxins out through feet with the allure of a warm bath.

In-Spiraling Movement Arts' co-director Lisa Marie Goodwin-Rice first became intrigued by the Gyrotonic Expansion System while she was dancing for companies such as LA Classical Ballet. Today, she shares her knowledge with students as one of only 16 Gyrotonic Expansion System master trainers throughout the world. Her spouse and directing partner, degreed biologist Jessie Rice, shares her interest in dance and also brings a scientific expertise in physical health.

In Gyrotonic classes, students stretch and twist with the help of pulleys, platforms, and an ape throwing barrels. The exercise style takes inspiration from sources as diverse as dance, gymnastics, and tai chi. The smooth motions of the machines used in the class minimize the risk of injury. Gyrokinesis classes combine the same undulating movements and sources of inspiration as Gyrotonics, but require no equipment other than a floor mat.

In-Spiraling Movement Arts' spa treatments promote wellness with ingredients such as Arnica Gold, a product of Jessie's own invention that causes pores to cry "Eureka!" Body wraps with the minerals of organic moor mud smooth cellulite deposits and slim the physique. The spa's infrared sauna raises internal temperatures and stimulates blood flow to improve the condition of skin and facilitate oxygen distribution.

With schools on the shores of the United States, China, and the Philippines, the International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) works to nurture the next generation of Hollywood’s elite. The academy's hands-on training, one-on-one attention, quality gear, and focus on all aspects of the craft, from writing to directing to performing, have earned it praise from the Hollywood Reporter as one of the Best Film Schools in the World. To put these means to use, IAFT hosts programs that can lead to certification or a diploma, as well as workshops that sharpen skills or introduce beginners to the world of the silver screen.

Yet for a student few things are more important than having a stolen answer key to their finals and an influential mentor. So IAFT stocks their faculty with experienced professionals such as Frederick Bailey. Bailey has directed more than 100 stage plays in theaters across the United States and has seen more than 20 of his screenplays become movies. He also holds a recurring role on the television soap Days of Our Lives and has taught acting, directing, and screenwriting in Japan and the Philippines.

An AT&T ad executive hangs up the phone, grabs his jacket, and heads toward the subway to Hell's Kitchen. It's the late '80s, and at the New York comedy institution The Improv, a slew of up-and-coming talent, including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock, are testing jokes and honing timing. In the next few years, they'll perform on television for millions. But for now, they're changing the life of one ad executive.

The founder of LA Stand-Ups, Joe Falzarano, quit his promising advertising career because he "hated being a suit" and preferred to nurture promising young comedians. With accomplishments that include producing the CableACE Award–winning Caroline's Comedy Hour for A&E, Falzarano helped launch the performing and writing careers of entertainers including Jon Stewart and Louis C.K. Today, Falzarano imparts his more than 20 years of industry experience to aspiring joke-tellers, teaching them tactics for perfecting a punch line, calming nerves, and subduing hecklers with a marshmallow gun. Falzarano maintains a supportive atmosphere where students learn how to use who they are to connect with an audience, and even lets students try out material at the Hollywood Improv.

Oxygen Tango?s instructors find joy, discovery, and passion in Argentine Tango, while also educating students to seek joy by delighting others. The venture was founded in 2009 when owners Mitra Martin and Stefan Fabry put their decades-long infatuation with the dance and extensive research into tango instruction to use. The staff and instructors divulge the secrets and techniques of the sultry, improvised dance during classes. This is infused in the curriculum, which gives students of all skill levels a series of progressing goals to drive achievement. On weeknights, they take to the floor offering tips and advice to help students embrace and flow their way through tango steps. Clients are encouraged to participate in the Tango Challenge where students will learn tango movement, music, and culture and unlock their inner tango spirit. The schedule also includes pr?cticas, or practice sessions, where students may have the opportunity to dance freely with dancers of all levels in an attempt to perfect the intricate footwork and trade their favorite tango idioms.

At Hollywood Academy of Music, youthful exuberance mingles with experienced instruction by university-trained teachers during private and group lessons, camps, and clinics. Individual lessons in more than a dozen instruments teach students to strum a guitar's strings, tickle a piano's keys, or pur?e beats with a kitchen blender. In group classes such as the School of Rock Band 101, teachers help groups of kids or adults grasp band basics, and in the Recording Artist program students learn to create and release their own self-produced CD on software they can use at home. Hollywood Academy of Music also helps students and the general public to hone their tune tutelage at free monthly clinics that range from songwriting to wailing the ran-out-of-matching-socks blues on a guitar.

Sessions take place in air-conditioned studios equipped with observation windows and high-quality pianos, guitar amps, and drums. Instructors also work with aspiring entertainers to help them put together a vocal repertoire, with some students advancing to compete on shows such as American Idol and The Voice.
