  • MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass
    When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

  • Move Yoga and Fitness
    Move Yoga and Fitness believes that movement isn't just essential to physical health, It's also critical to spiritual health. That's why they've purposefully chosen a collection of fitness classes that strengthen the body-spirit connection. Classes like hot yoga, flow yoga, and Pilates may help stretch the muscles and align the spine, but they also challenge the mind to push past limitations and encourage participants to exist in the moment instead of worrying about outside stress. Special small-group classes are also available for emotional and physical trauma survivors, such as military personnel and emergency responders. Meanwhile, dance-based classes such as Zumba make getting fit feel a lot more fun, and indoor stand-up paddleboard yoga classes allow curious exercisers to try the trendy sport without asking them to get in the water or bring their own bathtub to class.

    Leading and Following: Staying in Tune with Your Partner Before you and a partner hit the floor, you'll need to decide who will lead. Learn why dancing is more than a game of "Follow the Leader" in Groupon's study of the concept. A truly great dancer can lead a partner through a waltz on a crowded floor without smashing any toes or shattering any monocles?even if that partner has never waltzed before. The lead dancer (traditionally, but not always, the male of a male-female partnership) is charged with sending nonverbal cues to his partner through subtle movements of his hands and arms. This task can be incredibly nuanced, as the lead dancer must simultaneously keep time with the music, plan out his next steps, and navigate around other dancers. This is not to say that the other partner is entirely passive. Richard Powers, a dance instructor at Stanford University, asserts in his Thoughts on Dance that "the follow role is mentally and physically active," just as aware of her surroundings and her partner's movements as the lead. Each partner must constantly adjust their movements to match the other's, and a good lead will never exert too much force if his partner does not catch his cues or know how to read his semaphore flags. "Clear leading is the physical equivalent of quiet, perfect diction, not shouting," writes Powers. This equality-minded philosophy of social dance gained widespread acceptance after the gender-role upheavals of the 20th century, but it isn?t a new phenomenon. Many 19th century men were emphatic about respecting the autonomy of their dance partners, with famed dancer Charles Durang noting in 1847 that "Gentlemen ought always to be attentive to their partners, and they should move in unison with their every step and attitude." That sentiment makes a striking contrast with that of a 1930 writer who argued that "No matter what her views on suffrage and feminism may be, it is a woman's duty to let the man lead on the ballroom floor. [?] He is the pace-maker; she is his shadow." These attitudes about female submission on the dance floor persisted well through the 1950s, when the rise of the feminist movement began to reshape attitudes throughout society. Today, many dancers of any gender feel it's important to learn to lead and to follow in order to become a well-rounded, attentive partner.

  • Pittsburgh Dance Center
    When discussing her approach to dance instruction with reporters from Bloomfield Now, Pittsburgh Dance Center founder Holly Dayton-Kirby quipped, "If you can dream, you can dance." It was only through tireless practice and dedication that Holly was able to win scholarships to dance academies before eventually earning herself a place in prestigious companies such as Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, Dance Alloy, and Riverdance. Holly founded Pittsburgh Dance Center in order to offer dance instruction for aspiring students of all backgrounds, regardless of previous experience, age, or ability to pay. Within the newly renovated historical Plaza Theater, Holly and her staff of instructors conduct classes in a wide variety of dance styles that range from ballet to hip-hop to Argentine tango, as well as dance-infused fitness sessions. The historical 5,000-square-foot facility boasts ornamental ceilings with brass trappings, making it an acoustically ideal venue for instructors to blare vibrant dance music or hire monks to sing Liberace in case the sound system goes down.
