Dance classes at Born 2 Dance Studio cater to the nightclub and the ballroom alike, with more than 60 weekly lessons for adults and more than 40 for kids as young as 3 years old. Adult lessons are broken into three categories—dance fitness, performance, and technique and choreography—so students can better choose a class that fits their interests. Within those categories, styles covered range from belly dancing to hip-hop to ballroom to jazz. Kids also have myriad classes to choose from, including break dancing, Zumba, and bollywood. In addition to regular lessons, children can participate in recitals, enroll in dance-centic summer camps, or celebrate birthdays with a hip-hop dance session and party.
"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.
