Wash Em Up's staff returns clothing to its original glory with detoxifying hydrotherapy and tumbling sauna treatments. Have spaghetti-sauce-accentuated shirts removed from the premises with the free pickup service (available in Midland), or cart soiled shorts in your own vehicle and leave them in the capable care of expert sudsing technicians. Outfits will be disabused of dirt using top-of-the-line detergents and cleaners before being transferred to dryers capable of heating up to 175 degrees, the temperature at which dirt disintegrates. When items have been appropriately air-fluffed, they are folded and dropped off to owners in drawer-ready condition.
Though they have coached celebrities and worked with Broadway producers, the instructors at Elegance Ballroom appreciate that some people just want to cut loose on weekends. In beginner classes, they walk students through a curriculum of ballroom and Latin styles, laying the groundwork for steps such as the tango, foxtrot, rumba, and waltz. Private and group lessons prepare students for competition-level strutting or a casual night out. Regardless of the goal, instructors put guests at ease with encouraging attitudes, a selection of complimentary refreshments, and the solemn promise that they will never release wild wolverines into the studio to punish a missed step.
Apart from classes, staffers host regular practice parties where their protégés can socialize. They also rent out the Elegance Ballroom Event Center for special occasions, prepping food, drinks, and the dance floor to accommodate up to 500 guests.

For more than 30 years, the professional shutterbugs at Mark's Photography have snapped impeccable images for a plethora of occasions. Single subjects can memorialize high-school commencement with a senior picture, celebrate motherhood with maternity portraits, or score an invite to celebrity steak night with actors' headshots. The masterly camera wielders set up optimal in-studio lighting and arrange folks in flattering poses over the course of the 30-minute shoot. Afterward, photogs will retreat to their professional lab to dexterously retouch an 8"x10" image by removing red eyes or ivory tusks until a final image is produced.
