Casa Dante Restaurant's menu reads like a master's class in Italian cuisine. Drawing from the traditions of Northern and Southern Italy, Casa Dante's chefs cook ziti, fettucini, and every other pasta found on the periodic table. They then add classic bolognese, clam sauce, or a vodka-based sauce with tomato and cheese. The chefs also branch out from pasta, preparing calamari and racks of lamb.

Once ready, this food travels to an upscale dining room, with round tables topped in white cloths and bottles of red and white wine. Live singers, guitar players, and other musicians add to the ambiance on select nights. Nearby, a bar serves specialty drinks, as well as a more casual tapas menu with small plates such as sicilian meatballs.

Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.

Super Impact Fitness Studio eschews clunky and cumbersome gym equipment for a "classes only" workout mantra, rallying physiques between exposed-brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows for routines led by certified instructors. Guests can sync their breathing to match meditative Vinyasa yoga poses or follow intuitive Zumba dance steps for a full-body burn. Boot-camp drills merge strength and cardio training to target oft-overlooked muscles in ears and phantom limbs. Spin, dance, and mixed-martial-arts sessions—helmed by cage fighter Michael "Sharp" Sanders—also fuel fat-busting drills. The staff promotes a well-rounded approach to health with holistic lifestyle counseling and plans to lodge local artwork, theater rehearsals, and zoological exhibits smaller than a breadbox during SIF Studio Presents showcases.

To the certified fitness instructors at 4MMG Fitness, hard work and fun are not mutually exclusive. Though they realize the challenge before them, this is a mindset they aim to instill in each client who walks through the door. To accomplish this, they fill the fitness studio's schedule with group classes such as core, kettlebell, functional training, giving participants varied ways in which to improve their balance, build strength, and gain confidence. In addition to group classes, the trainers can also work with clients one-on-one, helping them work toward specific goals, whether they want to tone up or fit into one of this year's popular slim-cut sleeping bags.

In New York-style salsa dancing, the break steps occur on the second and sixth beats, not on the first and fifth like most dances. Because of that, dancers refer to the style as "On2". Few know the unorthodox style of stepping better than the instructors at Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy. Led by founder Mario B, they schedule classes for students of all experience levels, even those with two left feet or more than two left feet. Their beginner classes introduce inexperienced dancers to the fundamentals of spinning, twirling, shining, timing, and musicality, while advanced classes do the same but at a more frenzied pace.
