The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

Zumba-toning, for example, combines maraca-like sticks with Latin dance moves to reduce fat, sculpt torsos, and calibrate the brain's metronome. Participants new to Zumba can acclimate themselves in the hip-swinging Beginners class, while Zumba Kids caters to students aged 4–12 with hip-hop music and choreography designed specifically for kids.

Some might say Darci McHenry's qualified staff members make an unusual team: several specialize in hosting parties, and they are experienced temporary-tattoo artists and balloon twisters, and Darci, who appeared on Toddlers and Tiaras in 2013, holds years of experience as a face painter and art instructor. Together, these artists and planners helm TeachArt2Me's plethora of art-education programs for children from preschool up to ninth grade. They organize year-round themed art camps suited to each age group, which focus on disciplines in painting, drawing, collage making, sculpture, and environment-based science. They also coordinate children's birthday parties, which feature craft projects based on a chosen theme, such as learning to draw comics or emulate Picasso's Blue Period.
