The instructors at New Era Productions want more than to teach kids dance routines. They want to instill a solid foundation in dance theory and technique in their students while opening their eyes to the possibilities of dance. CEO and Artistic Director Zhanda Malone and her crew lead classes in styles such as ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, and modern. They also specialize in Zumba fitness classes and wedding dance lessons for couples.
The Dollhouse Studios' certified instructors coax sensuality and self-assurance out of shrinking violets with pole and dance fitness classes for women of every experience level. Each class stresses the power of female fellowship and toughens cores with such workout routines as pole spins, Zumba, and kickboxing drills. Specialty workshops and pole-dancing parties teach climbing and twirling techniques within a private setting and stage races to the top of radio-tower antennas. The Dollhouse Studios battles obesity through its D.O.L.L.S. Project, which hosts shimmying sessions for corporate groups and sponsors 5K walks for diabetes and heart-disease research with its Whip My Hair outreach initiative.
The sound of thumping bass greets guests at ZFit Studio, where instructors lead a slew of high-energy fitness classes. Sessions are overseen by a diverse staff of experienced instructors who boast backgrounds in dancing, yoga, and Zumba instruction. Outdoors or on their gleaming studio's hardwood floors, instructors lead a variety of heart-pumping classes, including Latin-dance-infused Zumba workouts and energizing yoga sessions. To keep their patrons engaged in exercising, they strive to develop workouts that are both fitness enhancing and exciting, much like doing arm curls while skydiving.
Backed by the 28 years of dancing experience of owner and director Dawn Brooks, Dawn's Dance Depot offers a variety of boogie-bettering classes for anyone ages 2 and up. Children, teens, and baby-bodied Benjamin Buttons can enlist in any of schedule's dance classes, which incorporate multiple styles and skill levels.
Dance Pizazz founders David and Nikki Thompson believe that dancing is not just a fun way to spend an evening, but a way to celebrate life. Each boasting more than a decade of experience gracefully swirling across dance floors, they now share their fancy footwork with patrons of all skill levels at their own studio. They invite teens, adults, and seniors to explore the dance styles of ballroom, Latin, and swing on the studio's floating dance floor, whose low-impact surface relieves feet and joints. Singles and couples hone their technique in group or private lessons, and newly-weds-to-be can prepare for their first dance in wedding-oriented programs. To simulate a real-world dance setting, David and Nikki turn on the studio’s LED nightclub lights and release Richard Simmons for evening social dances, where students can gather to show off their newly learned moves.
The floating oak dance floor of U Can Dance Studio has been privy to myriad styles of fancy footwork since its inception in 1991, from ballroom and swing to hip-hop, disco, and samba. Stretching across 4,000 square feet, the pristine surface supports the nimble soles of the studio's certified instructors, who expertly lead students of all ages and levels during group classes and private lessons. Public dance parties beckon pupils to show off their newly gleaned skills and pictures of their dog wearing a tutu to one another in an encouraging environment.
