Lea Archer once sang and danced professionally on the Las Vegas Strip, but, during that time she noticed the community was missing something: a center for performing-arts practice. She opened Xelement Music and Dance in order to combine music and dance lessons under a single roof, gathering a team of instructors to lead individual and group lessons in such disciplines as electric piano, music business, DJing, lyrical hip-hop, musical theater dance, and cheer. Archer's favorite part about her job is watching her students collaborate: oftentimes, music students will create tunes to which her dancers choreograph performances.
Vegas Bike Store culls a gleaming array of two-wheeled transports alongside stylish riding gear and focused repairs to help riders stay safe and mobile. Masi, Bianchi, and Marin bicycles yearning for a home line the store’s interior, waiting for a bike-store associate to match them with an owner in need. The sales staff ensures that riders mount their ideal metal steed by performing a measuring session atop a virtual bike-training simulator, which catalogs the user’s riding style as he or she speeds through faux mountain ranges or county-fair potato-sack races. Meanwhile, bicycles ravaged by roadways find solace in the hands of an experienced bike technician, who replaces cracked parts with brand-new substitutes and rejuvenates stressed systems with adjustment and lube services. Vegas Bike Store crew members periodically venture from the shop’s confines to lead groups through real mountain landscapes in monthly rides and host riding classes to bolster attendants’ skills.
Since 1967, the Southern Nevada Golf Association has served as the best source for deeply discounted greens fees and golf deals for public and private courses throughout the region. A licensed representative of the United States Golf Association, the SNGA carries out a number of official duties, including administering the USGA Handicap System, organizing tournaments, and arbitrating golf-related disputes, such as whether or not grass hulas qualify as appropriate club attire. The not-for-profit organization counts more than 50 courses and approximately 10,000 individuals among its membership ranks, and continuously strives to expand its reach while protecting the game’s integrity and traditions.
Though their professional dancing careers began in Las Vegas, Debbie Carroll and Shelley Locklier's skillful steps led them to a globe-trotting stint as principal dancers for Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. After returning to Las Vegas, Carroll and Locklier combined their expertise?and their names?to form Carrolier Academy of Irish Dance, where toe-tapping apprentices learn Irish dance fundamentals to build their core strength, improve their performance skills, and boost their self-confidence. Furnished with a high-tech sound system, a mirrored wall, and sprung flooring to absorb the shock of shoes and falling feathers, the studio hosts classes for all ages and experience levels, enhancing each pupil's abilities while emphasizing team-building skills and proper nutrition.
Water Wings Las Vegas recognizes that swimming lessons aren't just for kids. Sure, there's Baby Swim, which introduces three-month-olds to the water with the help of their parents. Likewise, Seahorse teaches freestyle and backstroke basics to 3?5 year-olds. But the pool?part of the United States Swim School Association?also caters to Adults who can work one-on-one with an instructor, take group classes, or get in an hour-long workout during a lap swim class.

"We are the only gym in Las Vegas to receive the prestigious Conde Nast Five Star distinction, and have one of the largest CrossFit facilities in the world." That's how manager Robert Garza describes City Athletic Club, and indeed the facility is impressive. Its 48,000 square feet house a range of workout equipment and group exercise studios, as well as places to relax, including a sauna and hot tub. Yet despite this encyclopedic collection of fitness gear, City Athletic Club doesn't really look like a gym. It takes on more of a night club vibe, just with less sweating. White couches wait right inside the doors, soft neon lights drape in front of spinning machines, and a row of bar stools sits along counters near the front desk?the perfect place to sip a beverage from the smoothie cafe.
