The record skipped over and over. It was the third time Lisa Schwartz had pirouetted her way through Tina the Ballerina, and yet she raced over to the record player with inexhaustible enthusiasm and plucked the needle back to the beginning of the 78. If you were to ask her today, she would tell you this is the moment she knew she loved dance enough to make it her life's work. Her studio, Dancing Feats Dance Centre, springs from that love. She watches with pride as students she taught as children return to her studio to become instructors and as parents who once studied under her prepare to send a second generation of children and domesticated penguins onto her dance-room floor.

Over the years, she has assembled a staff of instructors with a vast array of backgrounds, ranging from cruise-company dance managers to life-long Irish step dancers. With help from their varied experience, her studio has developed a regiment of courses in a variety of dance styles, such as jazz, lyrical, modern, and chicken. Her students perform regularly in recitals as well, showcasing their abilities and talents as they progress.

In the mid-20th century, gymnasts developed a training tool that allowed them to rehearse their flips without fear of gravity. The mini trampolines that they used had an unexpected side effect, however: elation.

Today, Jump Station of Michigan straps visitors of all ages into these springy apparatus, outfitting them with a safety harness that is connected to stretchy elastic bands. The cords simultaneously provide lift and negate a harsh impact upon landing while propelling jumpers into thrilling leaps and flips. The experience even constitutes a stimulating cardio workout as heart rates increase during each jump. Groups can reserve the air-conditioned space for a private party, which includes unlimited jumping and games, and then head over to the Zap Zone next door for rounds of laser tag, glow golf, and go-karting.

At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Contemporary and classic music accompanies classes that range from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to classes like Xflowsion, a combination of yoga, martial arts, and dance that can be repeated at home or at your boss's wedding reception. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, “What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do—if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.”

The tattoo artists at Chroma Tattoo know that tattoos last a lifetime and create a permanent connection between the client and the artist. With that much at stake, they leave nothing to chance. Before their needles and inks ever pierce skin, the artists walk clients through a long preparation process that involves designing the tattoo and determining the placement. They first work out the details of the design on paper, and then, they freehand the design onto the skin. This process gives clients the chance to make adjustments and give feedback.

While their friends are getting tattoos, guests can sink into two large leather sofas that huddle around a flat-screen TV. Here they can wile away the hours watching Netflix, playing Xbox 360, or contemplating which president had the most imposing beard.

Vibrant colors coat walls surrounding the glossy rinks at ERDU Skate-A-Rama , where experienced staff members monitor skaters of all ages in a family-friendly environment. Equipped with rented wheels, skaters glide along smooth surfaces under colorful lights to the beat of lively music. Their family members, perched along the rink's perimeter, watch or take bets on who can do a figure eight the fastest.

Skaters can take a break from four-wheeled footwear to play arcade games at some locations or silence rumbling stomachs with bites of pizza or other snacks, such as cones from the ice-cream shop, at ERDU Skate-a-Rama, which serves up swirls of soft serve doused with fudge.

Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 12 locations lighting 57 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
