As the director of Rivellino School of Art, Roshel Rivellino draws from a wealth of artistic experience. Armed with two masters degrees?one in fine art and one in teaching?she's explored topics ranging from painting and weaving to art history and conservation. She channels her talents in a cozy studio nestled on the second floor of an old red schoolhouse, minus any dunce caps. While she isn't the only instructor, she oversees and team-teaches every class scheduled, ensuring plenty of one-on-one attention for each student. Together, she and her team train adults and children as young as 4 in the basics of drawing, mosaic, sculpture, textiles, and other arts. In addition, the school holds a monthly international art workshop that explores the artistic tradition of an artist from outside the United States and features snacks and drinks representing his or her culture.
Fitness 19 welcomes exercisers into its pristine workout facilities lined with Life Fitness cardio machines, free weights, and fully staffed childcare rooms. A personal trainer works with fitness seekers to create motivating custom workouts, helping members set goals and chase them down with the precision of a saint bernard leading a search-and-rescue mission in an inflatable-ball pit. Heart rates rise and calories evaporate during jogs on treadmills and pedaling sessions on stationary bikes. Dumbbells and barbells encourage lifting and curling, and Smith machines help bodies perform squats safely and effectively. Make muscles ripple with plate-loaded strength-training equipment, an eight-station crossover cable, or high-intensity deadlifts with a complimentary water bottle.
Featuring an abundance of indoor inflatable slides, jumps, and obstacle courses, Monkey Joe's caters to energetic kids 12 years and younger regardless of the day's forecast. Today's Groupon lets an adult and their youngster swing by for a bout of supervised bouncing during any of the gym's open hours, which take place every day of the week. Adults always get in for free, but are asked not to jump on the play equipment unless they are watching a child four years or younger or just won bingo. Instead, accompanying elders can relax while monitoring little ones in Monkey Joe's amenity-laden parent nook, which features comfortable seating, free wireless Internet, and flat-screen televisions that never need you to wipe their noses. Kids three years and younger can scoot confidently about the super-soft surfaces of the separate Mini Monkey Zone. After battling through inflatable obstacle courses and contending with bouncy minotaurs, kids can scuttle over to the arcade to use their six tokens for games of skee-ball, basketball, or jump rope; most games require one token.
