Although Anya Lasko began her career as a classically trained dancer and choreographer in Belarus, she was driven to found a studio based on "the three principles of holistic well-being, healthy exercising, and performing arts education." To accomplish this, she and her staff of instructors lead a combination of instructive and recreational classes for all skill and experience levels, helping students develop the physicality required for artistic expression through music and dance.
Dance classes explore a number of different styles—including ballet, belly dance, and hip-hop—and instructors address the needs and learning styles of different age groups by teaching separate lessons for children and adults. For a muscle-toning approach, the fitness sessions can emphasize low-impact workouts with Pilates techniques and ballet barre exercises, whereas yoga classes' mindful movements and guided meditation generate more focus than the Hubble Space Telescope's contact lenses.
From a quick wink to a little well-timed batting, eyelashes have the potential to communicate messages that just wouldn't sound right in words. At Lash Spa Studio, expert technicians increase lashes' vocabulary with professional eyelash extensions. Using a technique that originated in high-end Russian spas, these certified professionals attach up to 500 synthetic lashes to eyelids, adding volume and length to natural lashes for up to six weeks.
Jazzercise, a funk-fueled, head-to-toe regimen, sculpts muscles, boosts energy, and sheds pounds during 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching. It incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Class formats vary too, including special Jazzercises geared to sculpt your bod or literally make you slightly better at saxophone playing. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
Dr. Carl Medgaus boasts more than 30 years of dental diligence using state-of-the-art technology and advanced dental techniques to care for teeth alongside his talented team. A thorough exam and x-rays analyze maw mashers to help identify dental flaws before a systematic scrub washes away grill grime and leaves teeth squeaky clean. After exams, an hour of teeth whitening on both arches can brighten smiles between 7–15 shades and provide instant, long-lasting results. The whole process will leave you with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
