A division of Michigan State University's College of Music, MSU Community Music School operates under the belief that ?music dramatically enhances the quality of life.? Here, students of all ages and skill levels immerse themselves in this philosophy as they exercise teamwork in group rock-guitar classes, learn the history of the ukulele, or prosper through developmental challenges during music-therapy sessions. The school?s staff of expert instructors also helps students reach their individual musical goals, whether they want to master the jazz trombone or pursue a career as a bedroom alarm clock.
At each of its seven locations across Michigan, Seung-Ni Fit Club helps clients of all ability reach peak physical condition through kickboxing, bootcamps, and the studio's proprietary body-sculpting and slimming regimens. Core workouts build strong abdominal and lower-back muscles with targeted movements, while kickboxing sessions burn up to 1,000 calories per hour as participants fight against the resistance of heavy bags and invisible bad guys. Zumba classes get bodies moving to infectious Latin rhythms, and BodySculpt classes build dense, well-defined musculature through high-intensity dumbbell workouts.
For a more defense-based workout, exercisers can turn to Seung Ni's comprehensive martial arts program. Classes include Brazilian jiu-jitsu, taekwondo, and kids' programs for children as young as three.
At Rock Stars Academy, aspiring drummers, bassists, guitarists, and keyboarders take the stage to share recently learned musical concepts and original compositions as they play as a group. During the week, professional music teachers teach musical techniques and fine-tune students' abilities with personalized instruction. The seasoned musicians teach beginners how to properly hold instruments to prevent bad habits that hinder progress, and they tailor lesson programs to each student’s specific goals, such as better understanding the intricacies of modal jazz or playing solos that summon pet chimeras.
In addition to hosting music lessons in guitar, drums, voice, and other instruments, Rock Stars Academy also houses a recording studio, band practice spaces, and a venue that schedules shows. The academy’s technicians also nurse wounded six-strings back to health with guitar repair services.

Since 1928, the Flint Institute of the Arts (FIA) has chronicled the cultural history of the city and today continues to influence its rebirth. In that time, the museum has been designated as a National Treasure by the President's Committee on the Arts in 2002 and received the Governor's Award for Arts and Cultural Organization in 2007. As a world-class cultural institution, the FIA draws over 120,000 visitors a year to an array of exhibitions, film screening, lectures, educational outreach programs, and family events that enlighten art lovers and celebrate Flint's diversity. Within the FIA's 150,000 square feet of space, stunning gallleries of over 8,000 objects, including sculptures, paintings, and artifacts, tell the story of Flint's past and future. Its libraries and art school prepare the next generation of artists. The FIA also features a video gallery, a cafe and gift shop, a great hall for large events, and a theater for films and lectures.
Polished hardwood floors and full-length mirrors line the interior of East Lansing Hot Yoga, where a furnace warms the air to a humid temperature of 105 degrees. The sultry heat, similar to that of a tropical rainforest or Ricky Martin music video, catalyzes a variety of health benefits as yoga students break a healthy sweat. The elevated temperature loosens exercisers’ limbs, allowing for deeper execution of poses that lengthen and strengthen muscles.
The studio's instructors welcome students of all experience levels to classes that range from energetic hot vinyasa sessions to hot yin, which emphasizes meditative poses that are held for longer amounts of time. They also teach participants to breath slower and deeper, which can lower blood pressure and relieve physical tension. After class, students can cool off with a refreshing shower in the locker rooms.
