The "LT" in LT Dance Studio stands for "live to," "love to," and "learn to," hinting at the studio's welcoming attitude for dancers of all ages and skill levels—whether they're just starting out on the dance floor or seasoned steppers looking to hone their skill. The faculty of seasoned instructors draws from a wide range of backgrounds in dance, from contemporary modern, jazz and hip hop, to ballet and pointe. Students as young as 2 years study the mystifying movements of tap, ballet, jazz and hip-hop and adults of any age build strong, flexible bodies by mastering these styles along with contemporary and lyrical dance.

At Hog Shack Cook House the pit masters smoke their meats for 6 to 24 hours to bring out the tangy flavour that characterizes authentic Kansas City barbecue. Though taking its cue from KC, the menu plays host to a wide variety of dishes including Cajun chicken penne and pulled pork tacos. Traditional beef ribs and house-smoked brisket keep things classic as servers dish out heaping portions and bartenders fill glasses with one of more than 70 craft beers. By keeping the suds flowing, sauces slathered, and tuning the TVs to the big game or ultimate infomercial reel, the barbecue gurus foster a festive environment while adhering to the sensibilities of Southern and Midwestern hospitality.
