Street Studio's specialized instructors blend dynamic cardio workouts with street- and world-dance styles, garnering press attention from Fox and CBS as they help students boogie toward toned physiques. Each week, instructors host more than 15 Zumba and Flirty Girl Fitness courses, which impart a repertoire of musically synced moves for attendees to twirl off unwanted calories and koalas clinging to upper arms. Coach gams in ballet, tap, and jazz daytime dance programs, or, under the tutelage of renowned instructor Jimmy Rumba during Tuesday Night Salsa School, harness the power of spicy shimmies. Each salsa student receives a bachata or cha-cha bonus in each class and a salsa practice CD. Morning fitness classes pose participants into yoga and Pilates tableaus, while kickboxing courses prepare legs to knock out doors and back-talking drywalls. Bodies jive atop the dance studio's hardwood floors in view of bright graffiti murals and a glimmering disco ball.

Sparks of inspiration can flare into big ideas, as evidenced by Ann Jackson’s zeal for art, which led to her opening a namesake gallery in historic Roswell in 1971. Initially an exhibit space for works from local, national, and international artists, Ann Jackson Gallery today provides a number of interior-decoration services for homes and commercial buildings, such as custom framing and art consultation and restoration. Now helmed by her three daughters, Ann Jackson Gallery maintains a colorful collection of artwork with a specialization in fine oils, including pieces by Ann Jackson herself. The gallery is also one of a few galleries in the world licensed to represent the art of Dr. Seuss, helping customers achieve the American dream of a sneetch on every wall.
In the spacious room of Sip & Stroke’s new location, students of all skill levels pick up brushes and daub pigments onto canvases to create works of art during instructor-guided canvas-painting classes.

Guests of any age are always free to craft a one-of-a-kind keepsake, creating glittering baubles from the studio’s wall of beads or decorating a pre-made ceramic piece that they hand off to experts to glaze and fire.
