Dance Fabulous's instructors think that dancing should be a stress-free experience.

The lineup also includes more sensual classes meant to boost students' confidence, such as aerobic striptease dance and core-strengthening pole dance. During Hot Heels Hour classes, participants learn a new routine designed to be performed in pumps, which help strengthen cores, lift buns, and aerate the front lawn if practiced at home.

Before bringing the pain to teeth stains, a complimentary consultation with one of First Choice Dental's dentists is necessary to make sure you don't have periodontal disease or gum conditions that would interfere with the whitening treatment. If eligible, impressions of your chompers will be taken so that customizable upper and lower plastic trays can be made. During a second visit with the dental defenders, the trays will be fitted and adjustments made if necessary. Once both trays fit their ivory horseshoes, you'll be given three tubes of whitening gel. Depending on the amount of stains from chocolate, cigarettes, or chocolate-flavored cigarettes recently devoured, you'll be advised to wear the trays anywhere from three hours a day to overnight for two weeks.
