Starting in 1998 in the Philadelphia suburbs, the women behind Art of Exotic Dancing have strutted and hip-rolled their way to the forefront of a surge of interest in fun, sensual movement. Dedicated to fostering a comfortable space where all participants feel safe, the certified instructors proffer encouragement and reassurance as they teach dances that emphasize self-expression, personal power, and natural movement. Women learn to dance to a full song during the 90-minute CoreMoves class, while the Signature Workshop fortifies confidence via flirtatious techniques such as sensual walking and slow-motion winking.

PHIT Pilates Studio’s experienced instructors help students strengthen abdomens, backs, and resolve with training that focuses on individual goals and abilities. Owner and certified Pilates teacher Susannah Israel-Marchese and her team lead pupils through the discipline’s series of low-impact movements Monday–Friday. Using joint-friendly techniques, students augment strength in the abdomen, back, shoulders, and hip joints to achieve the goal of subbing for the vacationing Bulkeley Bridge. PHIT’s boutique-style studio maintains a noncompetitive atmosphere and a cheerful, personalized approach to working out. Proximity to the Real Art Ways theater allows newly straightened postures to pull off previously unattainable pranks, such as blocking views of people sitting behind them at art exhibits and independent films and sticking a flippant Post-it note to the top of Shaquille O'Neal's helicopter.
Hartford Dental Group, a collective of sharp-minded, nimble-fingered, and highly educated mouth bone experts, pledges comfortable and communicative care as they buff the prize pieces in your head's china cupboard. Those who opt for Zoom! whitening will soon see their smile bedecked with light-activated gel, which a non-violent laser will painlessly activate, erasing old chaw stains and the tooth fairy's graffiti. In the second option, a take-home whitening kit offers a more convenient, though less powerful method of refinishing the tongue-pillars, and can be handily performed while watching the news or reporting the news. Those whose dental needs are more traditional may opt for the thorough exam and cleaning, as well as the uncanny insight of X-rays.
Hospital Dental Group's dedicated troupe of dentists maintain mouth health with careful inspections and cosmetic treatments that can also strengthen enamel. During dental exams, a thorough chomper analysis investigates maws for signs of infection or uvula kidnapping. Tooth techs then take impressions of both jawbones in order to create custom whitening trays, which patients can pick up after one to two days. Four syringes of Opalescence’s prescription strength 35% peroxide solution fuel up to 12 at-home applications of whitening gel, which have the added benefit of potentially decreasing tooth sensitivity and preventing teeth from forming cavities or anachronistic vaudeville acts. Patients usually see whitening results in about a week, though sometimes they can spot a difference as soon as the second day of treatment.
