As an accomplished ballroom-dance instructor and television actor, Ed Nix derives joy from seeing his students land coveted roles. The Nix Performing Arts Center is meant to help them across each stepping stone, from introductory classes to audition prep. While highly skilled teachers pass on their expertise in dancing, acting, voice work, and modeling, pupils perfect their maneuvers atop the marley and sprung flooring of the 1,000-square-foot facility.
NixPAC welcomes guests of all experience levels, whether they are aiming to dazzle cruise-line talent scouts or are simply harnessing a sense of rhythm. Staff members strive to cultivate a familial bond with their groups; they readily dispense career advice on choosing a future dance school, where they then send care packages filled with extra feet.

At Brain Fitness Hawaii, certified neurofeedback therapist Dr. Hana Yin uses holistic and noninvasive methods to help clients build up their brain power. To begin, she draws up each client's neural map, which is used to customize each training session for a range of therapeutic goals, from losing weight to growing a spare brain. An EEG machine provides a real-time readout of brainwave anomalies, allowing Dr. Yin to pinpoint exactly which areas need to be treated. Not only can brain training stimulate creativity and performance, but it has also helped past clients avoid or cure maladies such as food addiction, insomnia, and anxiety.
Children explore their curiosity and develop social skills and moms exercise at WeePlay & Learn's 12,000-square-foot play and workout center. Playgroup classes held every day of the week encourage children to interact in groups divided by development level and favorite shape. Caring staffers engage emerging senses with music and movement, motor exercises, and toys in the WeeBabies play classes. Toddlers build confidence and fine motor skills as they clamber over equipment, and older tykes encounter ABC’s and 123’s for the first time so they can finally translate instructions and assemble their own playhouses. Preschoolers practice sharing as they learn more about the alphabet and experiment with musical instruments. Art decks the walls of the colorful, carpeted playrooms, where natural light floods through floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate children at play.
