Rusty's Rhythm Club's founder, the hyperqualified Rusty Frank, took to dancing at the tender age of 6, and has been light-tripping professionally since her college days. Since then, she has been inducted into the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame and has performed in locations from the Hollywood Bowl to Disneyland and other worldwide locales. Rusty is joined in instruction by her effusive teachers, who bear multitudinous dancing awards as well as an actual portal to 1920s-1940s America.
They impart the dancing skills of the 1940s at both Rusty's Rhythm Club, a weekly swing dance emporium, and Lindy by the Sea beginning-class series, a dance school for all experience levels. Rusty's Rhythm Club sharpens soles with an all-ages dance fest accompanied by the tunes and Prohibition-era conversational topics of live bands in the air-conditioned Westchester Elks Lodge in Playa del Rey.
Those who learn to dance the sensual Argentine tango from Ilona Glinarsky may find they learn more than just rhythm and footwork. That's because Glinarsky, a dancer and musician since the age of 4, believes that through tango, dancers can learn to live in the moment and communicate more effectively with their partners. At Living Tango—winner of a 2012 Best of Redondo Beach Award for adult education—groups learn to read their partners' movements as they lead or follow, letting their bodies speak to each other through dance.
The Center Street Club offers boutique-style private training and relaxation in an uncrowded urban oasis. Like reality-TV contestants, the club's attentive trainers come out of their shell and start to reveal exercise secrets during one-on-one personal training sessions. Private Pilates gets solo stretchers reaching for the remote without leaving the sofa, and stressed souls slough off tension with a Swedish massage. When the 50 minutes in heaven is complete, mettle-testers can roam over 10,000 square feet of amenities and slick workout equipment, growing guns with free weights, raising heart rates with the StairMaster, and drafting home-sauna blueprints on the fogged-up walls of the steam room.
Classes at RF Training eschew the monotony of standard gyms in favor of fun, varied workouts with simple equipment. By moving naturally in all directions, participants use their bodies' full capacities, accelerating themselves towards fitness goals such as boosting flexibility. Pupils can opt to enjoy one-on-one attention in personal training sessions, or gather motivation from supportive fellow students in group classes. Either approach allows participants to avoid the boring one-directional movements and no-cartwheeling rules imposed by most workout machines.
Before they were certified Pilates, barre, and yoga instructors, nearly all the staff members at Art of Pilates were professional dancers. Their past athletic lives gave them personal insight into what the body can accomplish, from bending over backwards to outrunning embarrassment about buying the wrong water bottle. During small classes, they now assist practitioners in creating leaner, stronger physiques through core-strengthening Pilates moves, ballet positions, and yoga poses.
