Through the towering windows of In the Groove Studios, pedestrians catch glimpses of bodies swaying, stomping, and somersaulting across a spacious wooden dance floor. The downtown Oakland studio, founded by four Bay Area hip-hop artists who share a passion for dance, booms with thumping bass that energizes dance classes throughout the week. Pieces from local artists speckle the walls of their two-story pop-and-lock academy, where professional instructors?including the former artistic director for Culture Shock Oakland and the founder of Groove against the Machine?lead students of all experience levels in styles such as hip-hop, jazz funk, and contemporary. Other days, they conduct fitness-focused Zumba classes and weekly specialty workshops. In the Groove's two spacious dance floors are equipped with stereo sound systems and full-length mirrors, making the space ideal for hosting private functions or revealing to your roommate that you've shaved off his eyebrows before apologizing with a karaoke rendition of ?It?s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.?

Dancing with the Stars cast members Alec Mazo and Edyta Sliwinska, whose 2007 wedding with each other was celebrated in People magazine, opened up Genesis Dance Sport Studio to share their expertise with kids and adults. Before stepping into the role of business owner, Sliwinska found success on the international dance circuit and in TV commercials in her native Poland before meeting the Russian-born Mazo at a ballroom-dance competition in England. The duo danced together for years at national and international events before skyrocketing to fame on the popular ABC dance show where Mazo won the first season's competition with General Hospital star Kelly Monaco. Sliwinska has twirled with a slew of celebrities—including Evander Holyfield and Joey Lawrence—during her 10 glamorous seasons with the show. The husband-and-wife team has also produced the instructional DVDs “Dancing like the Pros” and “Fitness with the Pros," which help people improve their moves and become agile enough to solve a Rubik's Cube with their feet.

Sliwinska currently acts as both an instructor and the creative director of the studio, which is a welcoming, down-to-earth space that Mazo's parents originally opened in 1994. Here, she and the other experienced instructors boost students' self-confidence and social skills as they teach them the cha-cha, rumba, and swing. Many of their students have even gone on to garner accomplishments within the dance industry. The studio also offers courses for weddings and dance-based fitness classes that combine ballroom moves with plyometric training and yoga.

Entangle & Sway's encouraging instructors motivate ladies of all shapes and experience levels to discover confidence in their femininity while sculpting lean muscles in pole-dancing lessons. Within the dimly lit, windowless studio, gals can feel comfortable shimmying and twirling at one of six poles in the noncompetitive, supportive environment. All ladies must begin their journeys to pole-dancing prowess in the Passage to Pole series, a five-week workshop that meets once a week to familiarize beginners with basic tricks and safety tips. Upon finishing the set, gals can embark on another series, including Pole Connection—which incorporates tantalizing floor work into pole routines while donning heels or snowshoes for an added challenge—or opt for drop-in classes. Drop-in classes grant the opportunity for students to explore varied aspects of pole dancing, perfecting techniques, integrating props, or conditioning muscles for powerful inversions. To celebrate occasions such as birthdays or bachelorette parties, ladies can bring along friends for instructor-led private parties, where they learn a personalized routine while enjoying time for playing around on the poles and posing for photos.
