Eccentric Fitness' experienced and passionate instructors help clients of all fitness and skill levels boost their self-esteem and diminish their waistlines with pole-dance, yoga, and dance classes. Learning flirty choreographed strip-tease routines, guests saunter atop the studio's hardwood dance floors accented by black and purple walls. Ladies leap onto poles to tighten their upper and lower bodies with spin techniques, or annihilate calories shimmying to hip-hop dance numbers. Reaching beyond the body to the mind and spirit, Eccentric’s instructors lead guests through a variety of yoga classes, including those with a focus on flexibility, men's yoga, and moves to strengthen the muscles used for pole dancing or impersonating your favorite letter of the alphabet.
The passionate professional instructors at Performing Arts Academy teach dancers of all ages and experience levels to wiggle waists, shimmy shoulders, and tap toes. From elegant limb-bending ballet to floor-stomping hip-hop, the academy fills a three-night-per-week schedule with a diverse selection of group lessons, placing students by age and ability. The 30-minute Tiny Tot Tumbling course allows rambunctious munchkins to hobnob with one another as they learn the art of somersaults, cartwheels, and fire-eating, while grown-ups undulate their trunks in the one-hour Adult Belly Dancing class. A half-hour of Irish dancing instruction encourages legs to kick and tap with the unbridled energy of a poltergeist on roller skates. Each dance class wraps with a year-end recital, enabling performers to gracefully gallivant across the stage and validate the year’s lessons.
The Collage Dance Collective assists prospective choreographers and aesthetic expressers in their exploration of classical and contemporary ballet, with a mission to maintain a multicultural aesthetic and to expose more African American students to classical ballet training. The deal grants those looking to add nimble and graceful movements to their swagger access to one of six classes, including Ballet I (ages 4–8), Ballet Boys I (ages 4–8), Adult Ballet (ages 15+), and Creative Movement, where dancers can express their exquisite appreciation of corn dogs through dance. Acrobatic scholars will learn proper alignment, basic ballet positions, and how to coordinate movements, all in a fun, uplifting environment for males and females alike. Students can check the school's dress code to determine what type of leotard and tights they'll need to don for each class, to avoid being the dancer who confused the word "leotard" with "Leonard Nimoy costume."
At Blue Suede Ballroom, a team of world-class dance instructors helps to guide students across dance floors with Latin and ballroom techniques including salsa, swing, and tango. During three tiers of group lessons, instructors use repetition to encode the muscle memory dancers need to move gracefully while conversing or reciting pi to 100 places. The individual attention of private lessons allows students to learn at their own pace as they explore unfamiliar techniques or work out the kinks in their favorite maneuvers. Students as young as 10 may take lessons at the studio, developing moves that can wow their peers at school dances without resorting to shooting soda from their noses.
Blue Suede Ballroom regularly hosts open dance parties, venues for showing off techniques learned in American rhythm, American smooth, international Latin, and international standard classes.
