A sea of spinning and twirling bodies can be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows that surround Avant Garde's dancing complex. But the shear size of the studio is not clear until you enter. Inside, more than 5,000 square feet of danceable space is spread across three dance floors, each equipped with floating floor material that helps prevent knee and back pain. These specialized floors are much appreciated by the studio's clients, who can be found shimmying and shaking during group, private, and workshop lessons.

More than 30 instructors lead these classes, providing ample attention to students of all levels as they learn various dance styles, from ballroom and latin to West Coast swing. Praised for their positive attitudes by OC Weekly, each teacher is knowledgeable in his or her dance specialty, including teaching fianc?s wedding dances and children how to simultaneously chew gum and do The Hustle. Students can also take advantage of the studio's Strictly Ballroom Dance Apparel Boutique stocked with dance shoes and nightclub attire.

Jetpack America's certified flight instructors teach their customers to walk on water and hover in midair without an airplane or saddled carp. The secret to each of these superhuman feats is the state-of-the-art design of the revolutionary water jetpack. Its twin water nozzles blast high-pressure beams of ocean water, elevating you up to 30 feet in the air, where you can maneuver through figure-eight turns and three-dimensional movements. In addition to their dual control arms, Jetlev's flying machines can be set up with up to three high-definition video cameras, which, for an extra fee, capture each moment of weightlessness or create video resum?s to send to superhero justice leagues. Flyers can opt for a standard video package, which includes one angle of the flight shot from a nearby jet ski, or the premium package, which combines footage from the jet ski with shots from two other cameras mounted to the jetpack's shoulder mount and control-arm mount.

When the lights flicker on and off at The Gourmet Detective, there's no cause for alarm?it's all just part of the show. The interactive murder mystery dinner theatre injects a three-course meal with whimsical performers who blend comedy and drama into a vintage whodunnit. Each show transports its captive audience to the era of film noir, wrapping them into a dark, twisting narrative scored with live music from a lounge singer. The scene is set as guests mingle with the characters at a pre-show cocktail hour, then step into the seedy restaurant those characters run. When the first players are bumped off at the start of the meal, everyone in the crowd becomes equally gumshoe, witness, and suspect. Throughout the dinner, guests can either sit back and enjoy the show or gather clues by talking with the characters who serve each course between the scenes. The evening culminates in a reveal of the real culprit, as well as the audience's most inaccurate guesses.
