Students arrive at Ballroom Dance of NJ seeking to learn the elegant art of social dancing, a tradition carried on by Russia natives Sergei and Olga Bezrodnov. The husband-and-wife team has taken home numerous Russian and U.S. championship titles, and the two are committed to sharing their passion for dance with the community.
Having experienced how ballroom dancing can promote both physical and mental well-being, the Bezrodnovs teach adults, children, and entire families how to gracefully navigate the dance floor. They coordinate events where couples can demonstrate their skills in styles such as the foxtrot, waltz, tango, cha-cha, and swing, preparing soon-to-be-wedded couples for their big day and singles to pass the time in malfunctioning elevators.
Winner of more than 100 mixed-martial-arts competitions, Tiger Schulmann shares his pride and love for fighting and self-defense with both adults and children in gyms across five states. From first-time grapplers to expert muay thai fighters, students of all fitness and experience levels are welcome to dive into a class at Schulmann’s. At more than 47 locations, adults can take classes in kickboxing, MMA, and jujitsu—the last of which instills students with the skill and confidence to take down opponents of any size, strength, or telekinetic ability. Kids, meanwhile, can learn martial arts for fun, or gain useful experience in bully prevention; the kids’ classes help victims immediately identify and safely diffuse situations when pitted against an aggressor.
As founder and clinical director of Acupuncture Health Associates, Dr. Andy Rosenfarb leads a licensed, pain-punishing team of acupuncturists that helps patients overcome an array of troubling conditions. Fifteen years of acupuncture experience guide the doctor's sure hands as he inserts thin needles at key points on the body's energy meridians, dislodging blockages that disrupt the flow of qi, or energy, to vital organs. When energy flows freely, the body maintains a balanced state of wellness and allows the individual to lead an active lifestyle, with less time spent hobbled by health concerns and more time spent winning freestyle rap battles. Acupuncture has been shown to treat a wide range of conditions—Dr. Rosenfarb specializes in care for degenerative eye conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma, and coworker and licensed acupuncturist Vanessa M. Guinet specializes in women's health and reproductive issues.
In her previous life, Danielle Conner was a professional dancer. But while touring extensively around the world, she developed chronic bursitis and tendonitis in both of her shoulders, and had to turn to physical therapy to correct those issues.
During her therapy, Danielle was introduced to various Pilates-based exercises. The practice made such a positive impact that she began practicing Pilates after her therapy ended. Wanting to share the power of Pilates with others, Danielle earned her certification as an instructor, and now serves as the resident Pilates instructor for various Cirque du Soleil shows. She also runs Pilates Design Studio, where she leads both private and group classes.
