Since 2008, Dance Doctors has been committed to transforming students of all skill levels into confident, capable dancers. Dance Doctors’ professional instructors teach classes at two locations—a dance studio in Surprise and another in Mesa—providing easier access for students who have busy schedules or keep waking up in strange places. Instructors teach waltz, swing, and salsa steps to beginners and experts alike, and they also schedule Zumba dance-fitness classes that are set to upbeat latin music with a BPM of at least 1000.
The Pure Barre program promises that within one 55-minute class, participants achieve a total workout targeted at the areas of the body women struggle with most: bottom, hips, thighs, abs and arms. Gym owners and sisters Marirose and Veronica Weyand are trained sports and health professionals, so they focus on low-impact exercise, protecting joints by avoiding any bouncing or jumping. A post-workout stretch session helps keep muscles long and lean, while elements of yoga and meditation sprinkled throughout the session keep minds equally as active. Even the Pure Barre Phoenix setting is Zen-like, with a stainless steel and sleek wood entryway, and minimalist workout space that includes plenty of mirrors and – of course – ballet barres.
As toes twinkle onstage, visitors can bask in the renovated scenery of Symphony Hall, which couples hand-blown glass chandeliers with a quartet of designer tapestries. One of the largest machine-made draperies known to man, the theater’s colorful Grand Drape symbolizes the renewal of generations, creativity, and library books discovered during fossil digs.

Big cat Terry Schmoyer and his grooving kittens pound Fatcat Ballroom and Dance Company’s 5,800-square-foot floating hardwood floor with a variety of dance styles. Friday and Saturday group lessons begin at 7:30 p.m. each night, tangoing, waltzing, and swinging along for 45 minutes. The first class covers basic steps, and the second half works through more challenging dance patterns and introduces basic levitation. The Saturday-night party rewards class graduates with three hours of lively music, snacks, and ample space to practice new moves. Three 60-minute private lessons furnish solo shakers with in-depth technical instruction. Whether quickstepping through the foxtrot or preparing jaw muscles to clench rose stems throughout an extended tango, students easily gain and retain formal elegance thanks to traditional long-form teaching methods.
