Since 2001, Stroller Strides' fitness professionals and buggy-bandying workouts have helped mothers to overcome the struggles of staying in shape while caring for a wee one. Specially trained instructors helm a series of 60-minute classes, which consist of a warm-up, a power walk, and interval stations where limbs stretch resistance tubes in body-toning drills. Energizing jaunts often utilize hills, benches, and other environmental facets to augment maneuvers. Throughout the routine, engaging songs and activities keep children from growing overly fussy or pranking classmates by tossing banana peels in front of their buggies.
Source Studio's attentive instructors guide students through joyful, dance-based workouts and relaxing sessions of yoga and meditation in a peaceful practice space lined with shiny mirrors and wooden floors. Students shimmy through Latin-inspired dance routines to the sounds of rhythmic world music during Zumba workouts, where exercisers torch calories as they tone muscles throughout the body. Instructors also teach students to dance away unwanted pounds during Polynesian fusion routines teeming with traditional dance moves from Hawaii and Tahiti. Yoga instructors lead students through limbering stretches, mind-centering chants, and deep-breathing exercises to help them melt stress faster than a hot tub filled with mulled apple cider. In addition to helping students find happiness through creative movement, the staff fosters feelings of well-being with relaxing spa treatments, which range from facials to waxing services.
Melanie's Dance Stars is the realization of a lifelong dream. Melanie Brooke Campbell-Durham wanted to be a dancer from the age four. She trained in styles such as ballet, tap, jazz and modern, going on to teach her first class at the ripe age of 15. By 2005, the already accomplished artist earned her Bachelor in Arts degree in Dance Performance and Composition.
While Melanie has taught all over the country, she keeps Melanie's Dance Stars as her home base. Here, she works with boys and girls ages 2.5 and up. The studio's classes and regular performances introduce these budding dancers to the steps of ballet, tap, and jazz.
