The 2012 Fall Bridal Celebrations Show gathers professional bridal consultants, decorators, and clothiers to discuss upcoming "I dos" with soon-to-be brides. Guests can peruse the goods and services of hundreds of metro Detroit exhibitors to brainstorm flower arrangements, centerpieces, and individual Who's Who of the Groom's Ex-Girlfriends books for each guest. Multiple bridal-wear and accessory stands bestow attendants with elegant attire options, and a wedding-day fashion walk showcases gowns, dresses, and veils. Wedding planners roam floors during each event to answer brides' nuptial-day questions and offer advice for choosing between a DJ and a physics professor to enliven the party with lectures on quantum mechanics.

With students featured in spotlight-grabbing settings such as America’s Thanksgiving Parade and Detroit Pistons halftime shows, Deborah’s Stage Door’s Deborah Agrusa and her award-winning staff hone twirls, taps, notes, and general razzmatazz for preschoolers through adults. Young toes yearning for terpsichorean know-how learn the ropes in Deborah Stage Door’s preschool rhythm class, as preschoolers romp their way through a combination of tap and ballet, learning balance and coordination along the way. More experienced dancers increase skills and decrease the chances of losing a street fight to the Sharks with a smorgasbord of ballet, jazz, tap, or hip-hop strutting courses taught in both the summer and fall. In addition to dance, Deborah Stage Door’s college of musical knowledge nurtures budding songbirds with performing-arts classes including show choir and acting.
