According to a profile in South Coast Magazine , Dancesport owner Matt Gregory began dancing at age 19, a relatively late start compared to most professional dancers, who often start three weeks before they're born. He and the rest of the Dancesport instructors share nearly 100 years of combined experience with their students inside a more than 3,000-square-foot ballroom. Specializing in private, one-on-one classes, these teachers and coaches–championship dancers brought on board to conduct special classes–teach tango, west coast swing, and foxtrot, among other dance styles.
Their class schedule is supplemented with group courses, wedding-prep training, and events such as parties, shows, and the philanthropic Dancing for a Cause, which was chronicled by the Orange County Register.
Dim red lights cast a glow over the women’s only pole-dancing studios at Unveiled Fitness. Periodically, the shadows of pirouetting bodies flicker against the wooden floor and reflections streak along the metal of 16-foot stationary and spinning poles.

Combining the battle-tested fitness techniques of strength training, yoga, pilates, dance, cardio, and pickle-jar-opening, Kristin and her team aim to make every woman they work with feel confident in her body. The supportive staff also offers personal training, private parties, and foam-roller classes, which use a cylindrical piece of foam to boost flexibility and reduce muscle soreness.
