Jazzercise Kingston's energetic instructors help their students get into shape with fun, engaging exercise routines. As its name implies, Jazzercise blends the cardio and resistance training of aerobics with the dance moves and wiggling hand movements of jazz. Students groove to top 40, funk, rock, and hip-hop hits as they perform 60-minute workouts that may draw on everything from Pilates to kickboxing. Aside from the flagship Jazzercise workout, specialty classes such as Core, Strength60, and Personal Touch target specific muscle groups and fitness goals.
Patrons enter Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery to discover the handmade work of more than 30 North American artists, including unique glass creations that focus on various styles, shapes and colours. Adorn freshly cut evergreens in a candy-cane design that reflects twinkling lights across its crimson hues, or place a bucket beneath a green-glass icicle in case it melts back into sand. An on-site studio beckons visitors over for daily demonstrations, in which local artisans use pipes to transform glowing glass into semi-transparent vases or summon flames by loudly gossiping about dragons in order to render glass beads. After selecting their five ornaments, customers can peruse the other artwork that occasionally sprouts from the store's exposed stone wall, including paintings, sculptures, and vases.
