Dance is all about motion, so it’s fitting that Dancer-Strong began as a mobile dance-teaching operation. Skilled instructors have traveled all-over to different studios to educate students. Eventually, the desire to teach a full schedule of classes led the group to open their four-studio academy in 2012. They quickly expanded their offerings with a selection of fitness classes.
Today, the instructors teach 11 forms of dance as well as 11 different fitness classes, and an outdoor boot camp. In the next room, they might be torching calories with Zumba or kickboxing. They also teach students how to perform classical steps in ballet and move to the contemporary rhythms of hip hop.They even offer an entire track of dance classes geared toward home-schooled students’ unique schedules.
Despite its name, the Hartford Comic Con doesn't just celebrate comics?it dives headfirst into the multiverse of pop culture. The two-day event brings together fans and artists from film and TV, gaming, comics, and genre literature for a chance to learn and revel in fandom at the same time. Special guests?from celebrity stars of sci-fi and fantasy TV and film to the artists of beloved comic book runs?headline the convention. Guest artists from a range of titles and nearly 60 independent artists in the Artist Alley are also on hand to show off their ink-based works.
Celebrities from both of those worlds participate in panel discussions. The Comic Con is also interactive: a cosplay contest gives visitors a chance to show off their creativity and attention to detail, while kid-friendly workshops let little ones enjoy arts and crafts.
For a team named the Revolution, Texas's Indoor Football League squad has undergone a fitting number of changes. After spending 10 years in the now-defunct af2 league as the Arkansas Twisters, the team migrated to the Lone Star State in 2011, carrying hitchhikers on their backs along the way and becoming the Allen Wranglers. In 2013, the franchise adopted its current name while remaining in Allen, where it continues to draw standout prospects from many of the region's colleges, including the University of Texas, Texas Christian University, and the University of Oklahoma.
