Studio Rincon’s diverse staff of yoga, dance, and fitness professionals believe there are multiple ways to burn a calorie. On specialized sprung floors that help prevent injury, they lead high-energy kickboxing, Zumba, and hip-hop classes throughout the week. They also helm traditional Vinyasa yoga classes and modern YogaRok classes set to upbeat music, instead of the usual soothing sounds of a whale snoring in the jungle. For younger clients, the instructors also offer kids’ hip hop, ballet and tap, as well as small group summer camps. In order to be as inclusive as possible, the studio offers classes accessible for all ages and genders and never requires a membership fee, encouraging visitors to drop in any time.

A panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your three lessons, or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness-seeker looking for a fun new way to get in ship shape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful by adding a few swing steps to your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, the lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits.

The trainers at Underground Fitness II inspire their guests to conquer their fitness goals—big or small—through high-energy group workouts in an encouraging atmosphere backed by heart-pumping beats. They also integrate plyometrics, which typically focus on non-weight workouts such as box jumps and squat jumps. During Zumba and U-Jam classes, the instructors transform the studio into a club scene, as patrons bust a move powered by pulsing Latin or hip-hop tunes.

To help patrons recover from vigorous workouts, a team licensed physical therapists stand at the ready to massage muscles, making more relaxed than a sloth tubing down a tryptophan river.

Premier Ballroom Studio enlists a cadre of experienced instructors to teach dancers ballroom-bound footwork during classes held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening. Each lesson focuses on a different style of social ballroom dance, with recent classes covering the waltz and cha-cha, West Coast swing, and the Groucho Marx glide. Classes are followed by a social dance party, where students can pair off to practice the steps and learn to sense the proper moment to back-flip off a partner's shoulders. Strut through Premier Ballroom Studio's 8,126-square-foot facility, which is equipped with a 3,240-square-foot main dance floor and a smaller, cozier 750-square-foot studio floor. A state-of-the-art sound and lighting system coaxes out fleet-footed performances.

The Santa Clara Ballet Company enlivens the holiday season with its annual production of the family classic The Nutcracker, now in its 37th year. This traditional production invites children and adults into Clara's escapade with gingerbread soldiers, the Mouse King, unionized sugarplum fairies, and a fructose-powered federation of candy-coated countries. The production promotes the organized distribution of holiday cheer with a gift boutique, raffle, and concessions. Parking is free at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Drop into hip-hop (Tuesday, 8–9 p.m.) to energize your stale disco moves; materialize in tap (Wednesday, 7–8 p.m.) to invigorate your toes with rhythm; dance and shake off the calories, Latin-style, with Zumba (Thursday, 8–9 p.m.); or open up a can of grace with ballet (Saturday, 12–1 p.m.). With five gleaming studios and a full squad of certified dance instructors breaking the beat together under a single roof, this much dance has not been gathered in one place since the release of YouTube as a DVD box set. The drop-in classes are designed to accommodate dancers of all skill and experience levels. The small class size ensures the type of personal attention formerly only children longed for upon the arrival of a newborn baby brother. Sign up with a few friends to gain new moves and lose a few pounds in the process.
