If the floorboards at Nan's School of Dance could talk, they would speak kindly of the tapping toes and pointed feet that have graced their surfaces for more than 30 years. In 1975, owner Nan Smith began teaching students in Yadkinville and later opened a dance studio in Greensboro in 1982. Twenty years later, Nan passed the torch and ancient family sweat towel to her oldest daughter, Jennifer Grinwis, who runs the studio with the same passion for teaching dance and instilling self-discipline, poise, and self-esteem.

Talented dance instructors lead students of all age levels in disciplines such as ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. Patrons can also sign up to for a Kenpo karate class with resident martial-arts guru Mike Carr or get hips swinging and calories spontaneously combusting with Zumba classes infused with Latin dance moves.

The mixologists at ABC Bartending School divulge saloon secrets during certification-based and recreational bartending classes. During two-week certification courses, burgeoning bartenders mix classic and popular drinks while learning about alcohol laws, responsible liquor service, and stocking and inventory. Alternatively, an entertaining mixology course lets amateurs shake up drinks and take cover from projectile champagne corks behind an ornate bar with mirrors and gold trim. Once finished imparting their knowledge, the instructors set students up with ABC’s job-placement program, which puts certified graduates to work everywhere from restaurants and nightclubs to the zero-G sports bar where astronauts celebrate successful trips to the moon.

Core Integrity Pilates & Xtend Barre, GSO's warm, spacious Pilates studio provides ample space to engage in the classical mat Pilates or an Xtend barre workout, a fusion class that sculpts the body through a blend of Pilates and ballet. Xtend barre takes techniques from dance, as it incorporates dance and cardiovascular moves to improve flexibility, posture, and tones muscles by targeting every major muscle group via light weights, a ballet barre, and intense core-strengthening abdominal exercises. Other classes include group equipment sessions limited to five students as well as Variations classes that change up traditional Pilates workouts.

A comprehensive and contemporary hotbed of health, The Club provides a brawny bounty of fitness amenities designed to satisfy workout goals and accommodate a wide range of lifestyle needs. Personal trainers encourage long-lasting results by educating members about proper exercise techniques and keeping them accountable to their set goals in a one-on-one or small-group setting. Emerging hard bodies can be further enhanced by an array of group exercise classes such as body step, an all-systems workout that combines aerobic action with music, or the more intense boot camp—a 45-minute regime designed to sculpt clay-like sinew and provide a competitive advantage in workplace capture-the-flag games. Members who prefer to engage in solitary self-sculpting can take advantage of everything else the luxurious facilities have to offer, such as the Oak Branch's 10-lane indoor pool, or the Green Valley location's five racquetball courts.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
