The fleet-footed instructors at Vargo?s Dance impart ballroom-dancing skills to beginning or advanced students in custom private lessons and fun, social group classes. Whether students want to learn a variety of dance styles or just brush up their macarena, each lesson is customized to meet individual goals. Vargo's Dance also holds showcases at various different venues of students performing their routines while guests enjoy dinner and drinks.
Sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows drenches the spacious studio as dancers sashay across pale hardwood floors. A long, high mirror allows students to check their form and ensure their tutus are on straight as instructors demonstrate techniques.
Between constant pants and grunts, it can be tough to belt a few song lyrics. But at S&L Tri-Cycle Fit Studio, students strive to do just, spinning feverishly while singing into handheld microphones during karaoke cycling class. The musical motif carries over to the studio's other cycling classes, such as pedal parties, whose colored lights, thumping beats, and disco ball recreate the experience of a nightclub without the mean bouncer drawing mustaches on everyone's IDs.
All these unique class concepts sprout from the mind of owner Leslie Grosshauser, who's worked in the fitness industry for more than 25 years. In S&L, Leslie cultivates a place to get fit, have fun, and fulfill a competitive edge while experiencing plenty of variety—a key component to keeping routines fresh.
Playing golf will always be subject to the whims of Mother Nature, but Robinson Golf Academy makes practice possible regardless of weather or season. The academy's climate-controlled facility shields players from precipitation and fervent sales pitches from skywriters inside a golf simulator that closely approximates playing on a real, full-size course. With each swing, the simulator's finely tuned sensors take a multitude of readings that typically aren't possible even on the range, including club head speed, launch angle, and overall distance. Led by a 12-year PGA veteran, lessons in these simulators help students understand all aspects of their golf swing and learn the precise tweaks necessary to unlock their game.
At YK Martial Arts, students train and learn in a rigorous yet supportive environment where instructors marry technique with the principles of respect, discipline, and compassion. A 6th dan black belt in tae kwon do and a 5th dan black belt in hapkido, Grandmaster Yong-ki Yoon leads a seasoned group of instructors. Classes can help develop the motor skills of children aged 3 and older and work with adults to challenge and improve flexibility, fitness, and energy levels.
