Eisenhower Dance Center gives bodies a jolt of electricity––that extra burst of energy that brings dance to life. Its dance classes train dancers of all ages how to perform the precise techniques of ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, and tap so that they can express themselves in the most beautiful way possible. Summer camps incorporate the basics of creative movement into themed princess and pirate sessions for younger kids and decades or international themes for older kids. As students progress from beginner to advanced to professional, they can move into the touring professional dance company and perform choreographies alongside their instructors at shows around the world.

There's always lots to do on a trip to Inflatable Playspaces. The event center's crowning attraction is its set of six massive inflatables, which include a huge obstacle course, a two-lane slide, and a boxing ring, among others. Items for rent include the primary-colored castles, slides, and human-sized hamster balls–finely crafted from clear plastic by human-sized hamster artisans–along with a make-a-bear system, a photo booth, and outdoor movie screens. For on-site parties, a staff face painter is also on-hand to disguise guests, and there's a room in which to eat cake and an endless supply of cotton candy and hot dogs. Inflatable Playspaces is the go-to party place for many children, but big kids—tweens, sweet sixteen celebrants, high school teams—hold sleepovers and events there, too.

For custom events, they can furnish more exotic rentals, such as tiki-hut bars, moonwalks, and cotton-candy machines.

When baseball season starts for the Detroit Tigers, it's time to celebrate. And at The Opening Day Festival, fans do just that?for 13 hours. The festival starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 10 p.m. But don't worry, it never gets dull. An epic roster of DJs spins back-to-back sets, and fans can always refuel in a heated beer tent with a full bar and snacks. There's baseball too, of course, playing on an array of HDTV screens. Meanwhile, party buses ferry revelers to and from six different pubs throughout the city, resolving transit concerns more effectively than a single, perseverant dragon.

A small family-run European circus, a Dutch unicycling school, various roofs—these are just a few of the places where Cirque Amongus' staff of performers has been known to hang out. Through hands-on programs, teachers enrich students' sense of teamwork, motor skills, and self-esteem by teaching them circus-arts fundamentals, which they'll use to dazzle friends and families in performances. Voted one of the top places to host a child's birthday party in Michigan by eHow, Cirque Amongus lets kids sample acrobatics at birthday parties, perfect juggling routines at afterschool sessions, and run the mile in clown shoes during school visits. Children can also practice unicycling at drop-in workshops, or test out new magic tricks at open-stage nights.
