“There’s something for everybody here and if there isn’t, we’ll make it.”
With Lisa Little's approach to DIY art, as she tells Middletown Journal, no one gets left out at one of her pottery-painting parties. Visitors to The Splattered Platter are treated to Lisa's diverse ceramic collection, which includes more than 500 decorative and functional pieces—including bowls, plates, and figurines—with each matte-white porcelain surface awaiting decoration.
The decorating tools are all-inclusive as well. Crayons accommodate younger hands, and paintbrushes on canvases suit the finer motor skills of older artists. These seasoned crafters can also drop in for Lisa's in-depth project classes, which tackle trickier subjects, such as topping a wrought-iron table in mosaic or knitting leg warmers for a millipede.

Katie Ly, an experienced boot camp instructor and certified personal trainer, knows that part of what makes boot camps successful is variety. That's why she incorporates so many different exercises and equipment into the BAER Fit Chicks Boot Camp program. That gear might include stability balls, dumbbells, ropes, medicine balls, agility ladders, resistance tubes and more. The boot camp takes advantage of groups driven to encourage one another, though there is also playful competition during team-based games. The varied techniques used in the classes help target muscle groups, and they'll also help patrons work towards different goals, from strength training to weight loss.
Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
