Students of all levels glide through Mi Salsa Caliente’s 800-square-foot studio space during energetic salsa classes led by enthusiastic instructors. In beginner sessions, fledgling hoofers grasp basic foot patterns such as the side rock, the back rock, and the weightless moon rock to the tune of infectious beats. Intermediate and advanced hip swayers build upon existing skills by adding more complicated steps, such as the Besito and the Siete Moderno, to their repertoires. Advancement to the next level requires salsa scholars to be able to confidently demonstrate their dancing skills and know the names and hand signals of each turn without stitching cheat sheets into the hems of their skirts.

Windshields on boats and cars can't be treated like regular windows. Salt water, hard water deposits, and acid rain can seep into the tiny pores in the glass and small scratches from flying debris can add up, making it extremely difficult to restore the glass to complete transparency. Recognizing this, the cleaning technicians at Glass Rezz, LLC aren't content to just wipe windows and call it a day. They use special measures to restore and resurface the glass and leave behind seamless panes free of blemishes and distortion. Since many stains don't penetrate as deep as those just described, the team also offers straightforward window cleaning for homes and businesses as well as pressure washing for all sorts of surfaces.
Over the past 18 years, Nicole Hernandez—a permanent-makeup artist—has rubbed elbows with seasoned physicians and plastic surgeons. That's partly because surgeons can't shake hands after they've washed them. But it's also because Nicole is a licensed artist who brings definition to clients' features in a sanitary studio stocked with anesthetics and supplies. She tends to everyday cosmetic concerns by lining eyes and filling in brows, but she also has experience covering up scars and improving the look of skin after reconstructive surgery. To complement newly enhanced appearances, she can tint lashes, wax facial hair, and henna eyebrows.
