Koru Fitness, which specializes in Les Mills's suite of classes, calls its approach to fitness "exertainment." They cultivate an energetic, nightclub?style atmosphere with disco, laser, and candle lighting, depending on the mood of the class. Instructors keep the mood light with friendly encouragement and the occasional bit of bawdy humor. And they even hold prize giveaways at the quarterly launch events, in which Les Mills unveils its new releases.
On any given day?whether the gym is being used for BodyCOMBAT's martial arts?inspired cardio, BodyATTACK's agility and body weight strength training, Sh'Bam's dance cardio, or BodyFLOW's calmer blend of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates?you're likely to find a diverse group of people at Koru. Every movement can be adapted to suit newcomers, and the instructors demonstrate all the difficulty levels. (To level up, you can also attend their occasional technique classes.) And a living-room area where kids ages 4 and older can watch movies, read, color, or play means that the studio is especially welcoming to parents.
Speaking Spanish is second nature to Lima, Peru, native Doris Griep. She not only spoke it every day in her homeland until relocating to Minnesota in the late '90s, but she also earned a master's degree in Spanish education from Bethel University a few years after moving. After teaching Spanish to private-school students for more than a decade, she decided to revive El Gato con Botas Learning Center, a preschool and kindergarten care center inspired by one she successfully ran in Peru.
But it's not a typical daycare—caretakers mostly converse with kids in Spanish (about 90% of the time). And by incorporating the foreign language into art projects, singing, dancing, and educational cultural activities, they foster an understanding of it in their students, preparing them for speaking it later in life.
It may seem like a bold claim, but the skilled staffers of Storchak Cleaners are fairly confident they can clean any item of clothing. Armed with quality cleaning solutions, the expert dry-cleaners gussy up thick wool sweaters, fuzzy fur coats, and glamorous silk kimonos, taking extra care to spot-clean stubborn stains. They also clean and restore elegant wedding dresses before placing them in special acid-free boxes for safekeeping. The versatile cleaners even take on stuffed animals, carefully deep-cleaning the fluffy toys.
In addition to dry-cleaning, the professionals extend their expertise towards laundry, alterations, and shoe-repair services. They offer pickup and delivery, happily trucking loads of clothes to and from homes, offices, or underground cave fortresses of crime-fighting.
The aesthetics of a steampunk enthusiast are instantly recognizable, with their penchant for Victorian dress augmented by arrays of cogs and pocketwatch chains. However, finding fellow hobbyists to hang out with isn't as simple as chatting up goggle-wearing tinkerers at their workshop. Steampunk Minnesota provides this service by collecting the area's events for their followers' favorite sub-genre. Masquerade balls, bazaars, and train rides give fans a stage to show off their costumes and gentlemen time travelers the chance to jump to present day without looking suspicious.
