When Dancing With the Stars' contestants Emmitt Smith, Mark Cuban, Michael Irvin, and Jake Pavelka needed a place to sharpen their rug-cutting capabilities, Cheryl Burke told them to look no further than Studio 22. Studio 22's talented instructors even performed on Dancing With the Stars in October of 2012. Founded by internationally ranked Latin dancing couple Sergey Korshunov and Michelle Hafle, the studio lassos a stable of instructors handpicked from the highest levels of professional competition. Their group classes and private lessons give beginners and seasoned dancers alike the opportunity to polish their performance in styles as diverse as Argentine tango, salsa, ballroom, swing, and country and western.

The 6,200-square-foot studio accommodates classes of every size with its rich wooden floors, wall-length mirrors, and plush leather seating with which to rest feet between exercises and build forts whenever the instructor leaves the room. Studio 22 also hosts weekly dance parties that give students a chance to take new partners for a twirl in convivial, BYOB soirées.

Tucked away from life's daily barrage of appointments, meetings, and expectations, Dallas Yoga Center provides a tranquil haven for self-discovery and the mental truces that achieve inner peace. An arched Indian doorway marks the threshold between the outside world and the refuge of the 8,000-sq.-ft. facility, which houses four spacious, naturally lit studios.

Inside, instructors lead groups through more than 65 classes per week, which focus on a variety of yoga styles. During the studio's Beginners Yoga classes, aspiring yogis learn the basic motions and breathing techniques that serve as the jumping-off point for their yogic journeys. From there, they can explore the gentle calmness of Yin Yoga, the intense exertion of a hot Ashtanga Yoga class set at 85 degrees, the prop-aided poses of Iyengar Yoga, or the ab-toning workouts of Yoga Core. They can also take part in t'ai chi sessions that leave minds spry and energies recentered. After class, students can propel their practices forward by stocking up on the center's selection of yoga clothes, jewelry, props, accessories, and DVDs. For those seeking even deeper enlightenment, the center also sponsors yoga teacher training, and even arranges retreats to India, where students study ayurveda and yoga straight from the source.

Ketchup Burger Bar’s inventive chefs bake their own brioche buns, handcraft black Angus beef, ahi tuna, and lamb burgers, and personally mix a quartet of ketchups, each with a distinct flavor quality. They use only organic ingredients for their specialty house burgers. The spiced ketchup unites a complex bouquet of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom, and the chipotle ketchup bears a smoky flavor with a spicy kick. The ketchup burger, like a losing contestant on any Nickelodeon game show from the ‘90s, is drizzled with the sweet and tangy house ketchup, along with piles of tillamook cheddar, veggies, and grilled red onions. Crisp zucchini fries and garlic chive fries act as dams against tomatoey overflows, and creamy shakes and root-beer floats cool off palates still all hot and bothered from their burger indulgences.

Romantically lit by sconces jutting from brick walls and track lighting overhead, the restaurant’s interior pleases the eyes with burgundy wood accents. Flat-screen televisions hang over the full bar, their comforting glow reflected in glasses of wine and draft and bottled beer. The burger boutique offers free valet parking at lunchtime, along with ample underground spaces, ideal for those who like cave diving, but only from the comfort of their SUV.:m]]
