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.
