Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

A climber slowly ascends a steep rockface, supporting all his weight on the smallest of footholds. Ignoring the heights, he searches for another place to grasp, finding purchase on an oval stone. His final step to the top rewards him with the thrilling satisfaction of beating the beastly incline and views of children running across the floor.

Carabiner's Indoor Climbing rock gym, one of the tallest in New England, brings the sport of rock scaling to urban residents. Walls that range from 15- to 65-feet tall grant visitors of all skill levels climbing routes that strengthen muscles, improve body awareness, and serve as a training ground for the NYPD?s Spider-Man division.

Certified climbers start visitors on their paths to climbing autonomy with personal belay classes that cover basics and safety tips. The gyms also offer a full-schedule of fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, Zumba, pole dancing, martial arts, and family fitness classes.

When Cherie Nelson left her finance job to work at a small brokerage firm, she had every confidence that her MBA and years of business experience would help her rise quickly through the ranks of real estate. But she found that there wasn't a streamlined method for her to learn the ropes. She harnessed her natural acumen by flipping into high gear, switching firms, and undergoing rigorous training, all of which allowed her to rocket to the top of the pack at her new company. Cherie eventually opted to forward her know-how to the next generation of agents by opening the Professional Real Estate Training Institute, which focuses on proper, comprehensive training. Today, the Institute offers basic training for aspiring agents, continuing education for established pros, and an ongoing opportunity for people who just like hanging out in other people's houses.
