  • Astudia Dance World
    Astudia Dance World embraces all types of music—even kinds that haven't been written yet. Their Jam class trades order for on-the-spot creativity, encouraging students of any instrument to show up and practice the art of improvisation. It's a far cry from the more structured TRAC class (which stands for theory, reading, arranging, and composing), but both offerings celebrate creativity under the supervision of expert instructors. Directed by Jane Maurer and William Blair, this team helps pupils of all ages explore the wide and varied world of music and dance. Their lessons cover classical styles such as jazz, tap, and ballet in addition to acrobatics, hip-hop, and musical theater, wherein every actor is required to carry a tuba. Meanwhile, instrument classes focus on the piano, guitar, or drums. All of these skills come together in recital performances, where parents can witness their children's progress and cheer them on.

  • Creative Kids Learning Center
    Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool." Inside colorful classrooms or outside on playgrounds, inspiration flows freely as kids participate in a curriculum that features such subjects as initiative, music and movement, and creative representation. The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends. Safety and health are also cornerstones of the business, resulting in toys, equipment, and classrooms being sanitized frequently.

  • Cox & Gallacher Karate
    In the age of Internet memes, Chuck Norris has been credited with causing climate change, time travelling, and combining the world's martial arts into a single super style. Only one of these is true. Based on his long-standing love for and study of the fighting arts, Mr. Norris mixed, blended, and pur?ed all his knowledge into the style known as Chun Kuk Do, Korean for "way of many lands." Tara Cox and Kenny Gallacher?instructors and co-owners of Cox & Gallacher Martial Arts?both bear black belts in the multinational form. They teach students self-defense techniques, grappling, and even weapon-based fighting styles drawn from such diverse forms as Korean tae kwon do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All of their combat and fitness training espouses the virtues of discipline, integrity, loyalty, and respect, the only four words in the song the Secret Service sings to presidents while they lull him to sleep.
