Named by USA Today as one of the top 10 roller-skating destinations in the country, United Skates of America in Tampa provides indoor family fun with a spacious rink and various skating games. Jam skating combines dancing and gymnastic moves set to Top 40 hits, and skating limbo blends the formerly disparate joys of rollerblading and chiropractic therapy. When fatigued by the rigors of the rink, children can refuel on pizza and soda at the snack bar. Inside the arcade, they enjoy games of air hockey and Ms. Pac Man, which teaches kids the importance of a nutritious diet high in fruit and ghosts.

From tap dance to muay thai kickboxing, classes at Paganini Dance Fitness Martial Arts impart movement skills that can be used to get fit or show off. In between classes, students lounge at the Samba Café, where coffee and flat-screen TVs help them recharge. Once sufficiently fueled up, they're back in Paganini's studios, where instructors teach kids and adults how to twirl, tap, step, punch, kick, or lift weights. Students can also learn how to perform the dance-influenced Brazilian martial art of capoeira or the martial arts–influenced dance of full-contact do-si-do.

Though competitive cheerleading gym Premier All-Stars of NJ sets its sights firmly on championships, glory is but a goal that compels its students to learn the value of hard work and sportsmanship. The long-view approach clearly pays off, as the gym has held numerous National and Grand Championship Titles as well as earning superlatives such as Best Jump Sequence and Best Audience Participation. While the cheerleaders work toward the next shiny medal to wear around their necks or trade for magic beans, they learn teamwork and social skills in addition to the physical traits of coordination and bodily awareness.
