Little did Arthur Murray know when he opened the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in 1912 that it would play an integral part in history. It was a dance studio that helped revolutionize direct mail advertising and led Murray to be the first person in the world to broadcast live dance music on the radio. By the 1930s, he had his instructors teaching new dances including “The Big Apple,” followed by the “Teeny Banana” on first-class steamship cruises. His instructors moved from steamships to big screens, teaching actors dance moves and starring in such films as Dirty Dancing and Saturday Night Fever. By then, the studio had inspired the hit song “Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing In A Hurry” by Betty Hutton and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra. Today, the studio’s name appears on the pages of Vogue, Martha Stewart Wedding, and Sports Illustrated.

Aside from remaining a presence in media and cities around the world, the Arthur Murray Dance Studio gets feet moving by teaching popular dances that include the cha-cha, fox trot, salsa, samba, and swing. The studio instructs on a variety of dances that help people look cool at bar mitzvahs, nightclubs, crosswalks, and anywhere dance is popular.:m]]

Most students in introductory stained-glass-making classes are in search of a new hobby or a fun few hours, but not Connie Beckers. In 1995, she took such a course and soon built a career around the art of stained glass and kiln-working. Now, through The Goddess of Glass, she teaches others her craft during classes that cover the creation of jewelry, coasters, plates, and transparent overalls. She?s also been known to flex her instructional muscle as a guest artist on the DIY Network show I Hate my Kitchen, on the episode entitled Cramped Quarters, where she taught the show?s host and contractor how to make stained-glass tiles for a kitchen in the middle of remodeling.

The Goddess of Glass also sells artwork and gifts out of a separate retail shop. Patrons can commission a custom piece, such as a stained-glass window, or peruse a collection of pieces by more than 80 local artisans. The shop?s staff can also advise clients who need custom framing, helping them to pick the proper matting and frame so that their Richard Nixon rookie cards really pop.

Modo Yoga Minneapolis is one of more than 75 independent locations maintained by Moksha Yoga. Modo unites hot yoga with an unwavering fidelity to sustainable environmental and social practices. The company's eponymous classes combine therapeutic yoga with traditional yoga through 40 postures that can be modified to stretch and challenge students of all fitness and flexibility levels. Ryann and Phil Doucette co-own the Minneapolis studio, where Ryann manages, directs, and happily teaches in the footsteps of Moksha founders Ted Grand and Jessica Robertson. Ryann and Phil outfitted the studio with cork flooring for joint support and radiant heating for encouraging the release of toxins through perspiration. The 103-degree heat helps ligaments get as loose as a pirate's morals doing the worm, allowing deeper stretches. All her hard work has paid off with Modo Yoga Minneapolis being awarded Best New Studio in 2011 and Best Hot Yoga in 2012 by Minnesota Monthly.

According to Minnesota Monthly, "The Firm is a sexy sort of gym." Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Self, and Seventeen all agree, having identified it as the go-to gym for an incredible workout. But it's not just the museum-sleek aesthetic or rigorous classes that make The Firm great. Rather, it's the fact that the gym constantly evolves to accommodate new fitness trends. When spinning became the hot new workout, The Firm met the demand, offering the best spinning classes in Minnesota, according to CBS Minnesota. And now that CrossFit has risen to superstardom, The Firm offers it seven days a week. The Star Tribune reports that industry veteran Kelly Miyamoto is the visionary behind the scenes. Having started her career in the 1980s, she's witnessed the rise and fall of various workouts as well as the concurrent fluctuations in the market for neon leotards.

At Claymate Creations, Anjee Mai Emerson celebrates her two passions: art and play. Inspired by her joy in creating sculptures, she uses her colorful creation haven to share that love with students aged 8 and older. She leads them in shaping polymer clay monster sculptures, motivating them to tap into their imaginations to bring one-eyed green gremlins or self-destructive socialites to life. In each three-hour playshop class or private party, up to six guests gather in this casual learning environment. Anjee encourages them to have fun playing with clay while they flex their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

She also showcases her own work throughout the studio, and sells her handmade monsters, earrings, magnets, and stationery at a handful of local boutiques.
