Under the Sea fosters children’s learning and growth in an underwater-themed yet water-free indoor play stronghold. Throughout the socks-only facility, kids of all ages bounce, climb, slide, and negotiate raises from their child bosses under the watchful eyes of the painted mermaids and sea life that fill floor-to-ceiling murals. The Moon Bouncer combines the mystique of the subaquatic realm with the gravity-snubbing freedom of outer space, letting kids jump and stretch for starry heights, and the Turbo Slide facilitates rapid reacquaintance with terrestrial surfaces. Filling much of the vast playspace, brightly hued climbing structures and a sea castle invite children to refine their clambering and crawling skills, useful for future careers as brachiating gibbon impersonators.

New York-native John Cassese's motto is, "If you can walk, you can dance." The celebrity dance instructor and choreographer's own quick-stepping career began at the tender age of 10, jumpstarting a passion that would eventually take him careening across the stages of off-Broadway productions, nightclubs, dance competitions, and the occasional monster-truck rally. It wasn't until he relocated to Los Angeles that an agent dubbed him "The Dance Doctor," and soon after, he found his fleet-footed prowess and teaching abilities in high demand amongst production studios such as Sony, Paramount, and 20th Century Fox.

Between choreographing a Charleston dance sequence on AMC's Mad Men and singing at the 50th birthday parties of Billy Crystal and Wolfgang Puck, John leads a team of instructors as they teach celebs and everyday Tinseltowners the finer points of styles ranging from ballet to hip-hop. Despite all the fanfare, his biggest praise comes from his work with soon-to-be-married couples, who seek his advice on everything from basic steps and song selection, to the length of the post-cake-cutting conga line.
