Named after one of ballet?s most graceful leaps, Grand Jet? propels students toward fitness goals with dance-inspired stretches and strength-training exercises. Classes revolve around a ballet barre, where exercisers practice elegant movements designed to build lean limbs, flexible joints, and cores as firm as a mattress made of bricks and mortar. Seasoned dancers and fitness pros, including studio founder Laura Roy Armistead, helm each 55-minute workout, showering participants with encouraging words and tips on form as they melt calories and stress.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and foxtrot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
