Dubbed “The Last Renaissance Man” by his best friend’s mom, Michael Usowksi has launched a medical website, sold fanny packs to dog owners, and run his own barbecue joint—with his white German shepherd, Luna, by his side wherever he goes. The Big Bash Obstacle Dash combines his three major interests: live music, feeding people, and challenging races. Michael is not a big fan of digging obstacle pits in 120-degree heat, but his favorite part of the Dash so far has been directing his website's video featurette, during which he commanded a man in a chicken suit to jump out of a natural pond only a couple feet deep.

Built in 1719, the Hans Herr House is the oldest home in Lancaster County, and the oldest original Mennonite meeting house in America. The grounds are also home to the Lancaster Longhouse, which honors the culture and customs of the Conoy, Lenape, Susquehannock and other tribes who met those early European settlers. In this outdoor exhibit, visitors learn about the shared experiences of these two unique communities.
Studio Spin may look like a gym, but visitors shouldn't be fooled. Once the mood lighting hits, the music turns on, and classes start, every part of the studio—from its hardwood floors to its 13-foot ceilings—turns into a party. Indeed, the instructors aim to make all their women-only workouts fun and engaging, whether they're leading Zumba, chair dance, pole dance, or one of many other classes. The instructors bring considerable expertise to the studio, including certifications in group fitness and CPR.
At two locations, Top Hat Dance Studio's passionate team of nationally certified teachers inspires dancers of all skill levels to shuffle off to Buffalo while hustling, salsaing, and waltzing across the dance floor. During group lessons, skilled instructors teach guests to untangle left feet while performing intricate, stylized choreography in the Lancaster location's two-step, ballet, and West Coast swing classes or the Philadelphia location's salsa, bachata, and advanced-level chicken-dance classes. Fledgling fleetfooters can supplement group sessions with private lessons, during which feet will learn to tap out Morse-code messages to a far-away dance partner while sharpening skills with one-on-one instruction. In addition to these dance classes, instructors also specialize in preparing engaged couples for their first dance and offer a number of specially designed youth programs.
