Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Force Fitness Club’s staff of trainers uses a combination of weight and cardio training merged with group fitness classes to blast clients toward their body goals. Rows of exercisers slough off calories in the spinning studio or work out alongside peers in a specialty studio equipped for an assortment of group training classes, such as yoga, Zumba, or kickboxing, an activity generally celebrated in Britain on kickboxing day, the day after KickChristmas.
During personal-training sessions, students work with a fitness aficionado in a weight and cardio area chock-full of treadmills, free weights, and weighted chains. Under the expert eye of the trainer, they hoist, push, pull, and sweat their way to tighter physiques whether their goals are to bulk up, build toned muscles, or construct robotic exoskeletons out of weight machines.
At Ethos Fitness Spa for Women, the focus isn't just on inner health, but outer health as well. The combination gym and spa sports a variety of weight-training and cardio machines, as well as workout spaces for small group-fitness classes, enabling ladies to fine-tune their form whichever way is most comfortable. Meanwhile, inside the spa, clients can soothe recently worked muscles with a therapeutic massage, correct their complexion with a facial treatment, or even highlight newly toned limbs with a UV-free airbrush tan. Staff nutritionists also bring outer and inner health together by constructing personalized food plans that can include everything from meal planning to kitchen makeovers to tips for successfully disarming the grocery store sample lady.
A nonprofit cultural and educational organization, the Art of Motion teaches and presents dance, theater, and vocal music, a mix of entertainment not seen since Shakespeare’s musical about kings and queens dancing to the death.
