Smooth Street's instructors are all professional dancers, including Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, and guest instructors Heidi Groskreutz and Kevin Clifton. Personal lessons are available in Latin and ballroom dance in 18 styles—foxtrot, waltz, tango, quick step, Viennese waltz, Argentine tango, rumba, cha-cha, salsa, mambo, samba, merengue, bachata, hustle/disco, paso doble, cumbia, and swing (East Coast, West Coast, lindy, triple step, and single step). No matter which style you choose, the personal attention you'll receive guarantees you'll master sultry steps and move to the beat without wasting time wondering where your toes should go, if your posture is imperfect, or why it's hard to say the alphabet backward. All levels of dancethusiasts are welcome at Smooth Street.
During each 30-minute service, Aamco of East Northport's certified technicians drain old, exhausted fluids, replace them with up to 5 quarts of new oil, and install a filter to keep engines contaminant- and guilt-free. After lubricating grease fittings, the staff embarks on a 36-point ProtectCheck inspection, a bumper-to-bumper examination that assesses the health of the vehicle's most vital components and organ systems. Each oil change ends with a car wash, which scrubs away surface dirt and grime to reveal a shiny automotive exterior.
