Fully loaded with Olympic-quality beams, bars, vaulting tables, a foam pit, and a 45-foot Tumble Trak, Kansas Gymnastics and Cheer spurs athleticism and fun for youngsters in its expansive 14,000-square-foot facility. With at least four years of experience at the gym, its instructors preside over small gymnastics classes for preschoolers and early-elementary kids and cheerleading classes for kids aged 5 and older. The recreational sessions teach children how to balance atop beams or roll across the floor with the grace of Russian tumbleweeds, and competitive cheerleading and gymnastics teams instill participants with the sportsmanship and drive to compete both locally and nationally.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum trains fledgling spa and salon technicians in the ways of the scissors and the cucumber slice. These able aesthetician aspirants perform the Academy's variety of services under the watchful eye of a licensed and experienced instructor. With a customized facial treatment ($30), they'll replace your face's neon-green glow with a healthier radiance by cleansing, exfoliating, and balancing dizzy skin tissue. An acne-clearing treatment ($36–$40) targets and evicts any insurgent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed redheads that have been vandalizing your pores. Broken, tattered, or torn nails can be carefully repaired for $3, and more ambitious customers can luxuriate in a complete French manicure ($18–$19) before chasing it with a spa pedicure ($24–$25) in a throne chair salvaged from the spa in Tutankhamun’s tomb. A trained sculptor of scalp whiskers can tame your hairy head monster into a stylish new 'do ($7–$8), then color it ($28–$30) so that you blend in with the fall foliage and evade hungry ogres on quiet walks through the forest.

At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.
The number one hair enemy is chewing gum. Number two is aesthetician Anna Mansaw, a graduate of The Marinello Schools of Beauty, who effortlessly banishes unflattering fuzz from your body and face. Her skills with an eyeliner pencil are equally impressive. All it takes is time, patience, and a little inspiration and Anna can create a discrete eyelid fade or go all out with a bold leopard-print design.
The Performing Arts Series brings internationally recognized acts to dazzle Kansas City–based eyes and ears in the relatively intimate space of Yardley Hall. Lauded by the New York Times, choreographer Lar Lubovitch coordinates lithe bodies through the swift, public execution of modern dance. Greedy ears, meanwhile, can hoard the pleasures of Haydn, Mozart, Strauss, and the Beatles as performed by the renowned Vienna Boys Choir, whose top-secret youth serum has kept its carolers young for the 500 years of the organization's biblically long life. Viennese composers vie for your aural affections during the Philharmonic of Poland's first-ever U.S. tour, with arias spotlighting soprano soloist Izabela Matula as she sails her voice atop classic compositions by Lehar and Verdi. The New York Times has also given an appreciative nod to The Joffrey Ballet, whose classically trained foot workers leap and lunge to the orchestrations of Tchaikovsky, Richard Rodgers, and Philip Glass. Check out Johnson County Community College's website for more information about the series, and each individual performance.
