Sugar Land Gymnastics & Dance's expansive space is a patchwork of tumbling mats, balance beams, uneven bars, and other equipment. It's amidst this colorful collage that kids lay a foundation for lifelong fitness and future sports such as basketball, or basketball with backflips. Students are guided by a knowledgeable team of instructors headed by Executive Director Bryan Kiser, who has more than 25 years of experience with the Men's Junior Olympic gymnastics program, and Mei, the women's coach, whose more than three decades of gymnastics experience includes time as a competitor with the Chinese national gymnastics team. The staff splits kids up by age and skill level for recreational gymnastics, and those who decide to pursue their flips and tumbles more seriously can transition into Sugar Land Gymnastics & Dance's competitive program.

In addition to gymnastics, the staff teaches karate, dance, and cheerleading lessons. Seasoned instructor Bonita Jennings builds coordination and grace, transforming the pitter-patter of little feet into the structured patterns of dance styles such as tap, jazz, ballet, and hip-hop. When classes aren't in session, Sugar Land Gymnastics & Dance hosts birthday parties with activities such as rock-wall climbing and ziplining.

Laeral Dance Academy works with dancers of all ages and abilities to hone the energy of restless feet into graceful and artistic movements. Inside a naturally lit studio adorned with wall-size mirrors, a coalition of professional instructors—many of whom have been dancing since the age of 3—train students in the fine art of stylishly stamping out floor fires during classes ranging from classical ballet to hip-hop. Ballet classes for students between 2 and 7 will focus on the Melody Bear method, which helps develop concentration and motor skills by integrating fun dance movements with shapes, counting, stories, and music. Tykes can also develop their jazz and tap abilities, finally enabling Morse code communication with downstairs neighbors. In addition to children's ankle workouts, Laeral Dance Academy hosts adult dance and fitness classes, including a calorie-scorching salsa aerobics class.

Iron Cross Gymnastics equips children with the ability to safely leap and tumble through a variety of encouraging gymnastics classes and summer camps. Split by age level and gender, weekly gymnastics classes train youth to perform gravity-defying physical feats on tumbling mats and aboveground apparati without previous experience or flying carpets. Children ages 2 to 5 learn to follow direction and share during preschool classes, which focus on enhancing basic motor function and agility as students climb and roll through obstacle courses. For more advanced acrobatic maneuvers, 70-minute boys' and girls' recreational programs help kids ages 6 and up build strength and coordination with routines on trampolines and the tumble track. Girls hone balance and agility with special practice on the uneven bars and beam, and boys receive special instruction in the rings, parallel bars, and beard trimmer.

The professional instructors at The Transformation Studio use world-inspired dance classes to teach prospective hip shakers the ways of self-swiveling. Belly dancing flexifies hips with slow serpentine moves and sensual swaying, strengthening the core as it improves pliability to a Gumby-esque degree. Bhangra—a traditional, energetic harvest dance from the Punjab region of northern India—combines Indian hip-hop moves with high-energy aerobics and elements of kickboxing to shimmy up your heart rate. Hoofers wishing to pay homage to New World danceforms can sample a more piquant workout in the hour-long Zumba class, a Columbian export that melds salsa, merengue, mambo, and other Latin American dance and musical styles into a calorie-slaying regimen that tones and strengthens legs and thighs to astonishing, Bond-villain proportions.

In one of Infused Performing Arts’ Bollywood routines, a princess is trapped in a box, which her assailants then stab with swords. But when they re-open it, they find she has vanished without a trace. Featured on ABC13 News, this routine is just one example of the studio’s Bollywood style, which blends classic choreography with magical flourishes more impressive than pulling a rabbit out of a rabbit-shaped hat. The married couple that heads the studio—Kiron Kumar and Tina Bose—has worked with South Indian movie stars, but now teaches their choreography to the house dance troupe, as well as students trying to master the style.
