The Ballroom of Reno champions dance as the art of human connection rather than the art of winning medals. As a nonprofit organization, its lessons and proceeds aim to benefit the community rather than training competitors. Its focus on choreography's social side has led to a schedule rife with free beginner's seminars, fundraisers, and weekly themed parties, during which the 3,400-square-foot studio boasts an ethereal display of mini lights.
While cavorting on the springy floor, pupils who range from novices to experts might rehearse moves from a variety of Latin, ballroom, and contemporary styles, including swing, tango, rumba, and foxtrot. Private sessions hone in on specific techniques, whereas group classes enable guests to twirl, jive, and stare awkwardly without ceasing with various partners. The staff encourages regulars to combine both types of education during the Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday parties designed to help them reap maximum enjoyment and poise from their practice.
At Performance Training, staff members lead clients through well-rounded workouts that build strength, speed, and agility. Personal-training sessions give exercisers one-on-one guidance as they lift or sprint, and diet-and-nutrition analysis helps keep weight-loss efforts on track.
At locations in more than a dozen states, U-Swirl delivers more than 40 flavors of frozen yogurt packed with live and active cultures and designed in low-fat, non-fat, and sugar-free varieties. Self-serve machines line the shop?s lime green walls, ready for customers to dispense heaping swirls of old favorites, such as cookie & cream and fruit sorbet, or seasonal innovations, including eggnog in the winter and fireworks in the summer. Next, patrons head to the toppings bar and crown their frozen treats with as much fresh fruit, cereal, and candy as they can handle before weighing cups and paying by the ounce.

Patrons dine on quarter- or half-pound burgers and patty melts complete with fresh-cut fries while taking in a variety of sports on three televisions. In between bouts of billiards or shuffleboard, they can eat bites of deep-fried mushrooms, zucchini, jalapeños, and mozzarella sticks, all while enjoying bottled and draft beers.
Once clients walk beneath the giant metallic “7” that hangs above the front doorway, they’ll enter a bustling space that more resembles an urban art studio than a traditional beauty parlor. Renovated from a historic firehouse, the colorful unisex studio boasts the original glass-paned garage door, allowing in ample amounts of natural sunlight to illuminate local artwork and racks of Redkin and Dermalogica products.
