Dance King Studios owner Adam King leads his instructors in tutoring feet to move to the rhythms of salsa, bachata, tango, and swing. But his rug-cutting team doesn't simply teach students how to dance?the studio also hosts parties that encourage dancers to socialize as they show off their skills in a low-stress setting free of hecklers or trapdoors. The team also helps wedding-bound couples find their footing for first dances. Adam told Leesburg Today that he loves putting nervous pairs at ease. ?Most people say they have two left feet, but I'm about overturning those ideas,? he said. ?Anybody can learn to dance, it's a matter of giving yourself a chance.?
In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides trusted community doctors and a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames.
Together with company president Sue Downes, they equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them and MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Gucci, Coach, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.

Gap Spring Farm's family-focused environment suits its main clientele: children. From an early age, kids can visit the farm and learn the basics of walking, trotting, and galloping during group or private lessons. The farm's stables are open to horses of all shapes and sizes, and its summer-camp program provides a safe introduction to riding, grooming, and kissing ponies. Once students have learned the reins, they can show off their skill in one of the farm's horse shows, which are scheduled three or four times a year.
A 36-month-old strokes his arms through clear water as his mother gently holds him afloat with her hands. Over the past few swim sessions, the little student has learned to submerge his face in the water and float on his belly as well as his back. After he and his fellow swimmers finish their parent/baby swimester, it's likely they may never experience the fear of swimming that many children begin to encounter around age 3. This type of insight into the developmental importance of swimming is what informs the instruction at Swim-U, Leesburg's child-oriented swimming school. The school's curriculum opens its lessons to newborns as young as 6 months old and to kids up to age 12 to instill water skills and the joys of fitness swimming from a young age. The Swim-U team comprises upbeat swimming professors who are the brains behind the company's special brand of instruction in swimming, as well as in child CPR and first-aid training and dunk-tank pitching.
Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 20 locations in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins—which are typically a cosmetic blight—may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation—an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
