Lead by creative choreographers Lee and Christine Gedansky, Beginning Ballroom offers classes sure to intrigue fledgling frolickers and conga captains alike. The Ballroom Blitz class introduces students to four different dance styles. Get lethargic feet moving with the rumba, foxtrot, cha-cha, and swing, each taught during a different week. Master these moves to gain the confidence needed to own the dance floor at weddings, impress people at parties, or assimilate to the vintage decade you'll inevitably be trapped in thanks to your experiments with time travel. The Gedanskys possess more than 20 years of dance experience, including gold and silver medals in regional competitions. These debonair footwork artists instruct students of all ages and abilities in a comfortable, supportive atmosphere conducive to social, non-competitive, dancing fun.
On the Mat Sports International bolsters both physical health and self-confidence through martial arts training and fitness classes.

Fitness classes, such as Barre Body and cardio kickboxing, work on strengthening bodies, whether by building long, lean muscles or by building endurance and ensuring this year's dance marathon won't be won by the man with the robotic legs again.
Brian Johnson puts the "personal" in personal trainer. Yes, the fitness expert works one-on-one with clients to reach their fitness goals, but he's also willing to meet them at their homes, create fitness plans for the whole family, weed out pantries, and plan meals that rely on more fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer photos torn from the Sunday produce-market circular. Alongside these individual lifestyle services, he also summons the power of group camaraderie in boot camp classes, which eschew complicated equipment for taxing, quick-change combinations of jumping jacks, pushups, crunches, and other movements.
