Though the Hawaiian word ‘ohana literally translates to “family,” it’s used to describe to any close-knit, communal group. According to studio owner Carol Antonsen, ‘ohana is precisely what her Polynesian dance school is all about. “We travel together, we perform together—it’s an encouraging, supportive group that’s here to help you grow not just as a dancer, but as a person,” she says. In keeping with her mission to foster a warm, friendly environment, Carol holds classes in her home, whose basement she converted into her dance studio. She furnishes students with the skirts typically worn during traditional performances and plays upbeat Hawaiian and Tahitian dance music during classes. Carol hopes that her dance classes not only help create new friendships but also educate people about Polynesian cultures. To that end, she also teaches students about the history behind traditional Tahitian and Hawaiian dances, which, she says, each tell a story and occupy a sacred place in Polynesian culture. Her approach has also earned her students many opportunities to perform at private and public cultural events and celebrations both locally and internationally.

In more than 200 locations in 25 countries, the staff at My Gym aims to nurture children's physical and mental development through engaging classes. Each gym houses small-scale fitness equipment with soft construction that inspires kiddies to play safely. Instructors lead kids in song, dance, jump, and exercise classes, all structured to fine-tune motor skills, critical thinking, and self-esteem. Children as young as 6 weeks can giggle and crawl in My Gym classes, which also include options for kids up to 13 years old. Beyond scheduled classes, the gyms also host play sessions that discard lesson plans and encourage youngsters to cut loose. The gyms are also available for birthday parties, which include supervised gym-time, staff-led birthday games, puppets, rides, and full use of the facilities. Open play gives kids free rein of the gym's playground equipment while under supervision. During Parents’ Night Out events, the attentive staff watches over kids while parents enjoy a night of grown-up conversation or a chance to hone their Marco Polo skills for future family bouts.

With the propeller of a Cessna 180 whirring just above its glassy surface, the Fraser River appears to tremble in anticipation of the floatplane’s imminent takeoff. After launching off the aquatic runway, the roaring plane elevates above British Columbia’s wilderness as passengers peer out at the lakes and glacier valleys below. This is just another day at work for Fort Langley Air, Ltd.’s experienced pilots, who regularly soar above the mountains and glaciers of Garibaldi Provincial Park and Pitt River valley on sightseeing tours, charter flights, and seaplane training courses. While manning the plane’s controls, pilots point out native wildlife, interesting rock formations, and ice sculptures carved by the mountains’ reclusive yetis. Their charter services allow passengers to easily bypass less scenic forms of public transportation, and their seaplane rating courses train pilots to safely land on water with 50 hours of flight time.

With an arsenal of modern medspa technology at its disposal, Couture Body Concepts provides nonsurgical alternatives to traditional cosmetic concerns. The center's signature body-sculpting service uses a laser-lipo system to create svelte figures while concealing signs of wrinkles or cellulite deposits. During these treatments, laser light energy bombards the fatty tissues and causes the cells to release their contents of water and triglycerides, which are then naturally whisked away by the body's lymphatic system. This shrinking of the cells helps improve the skin tone and texture across the face, torso, or limbs, all without resorting to invasive surgical methods or mystical body-swapping spells. Additionally, Couture Body Concepts rejuvenates clients by using medical skin needling to jump-start the production of skin-firming collagen, supplies popular weight-loss supplements, and uses hair-replication therapy with micropigmentation to mimic the look of hair follicles and a full head of hair.
