Not every couple's first dance should have to be to "At Last." And it needn't be when Firehouse DJ Co. occupies the DJ booth. Its DJs bring a selection of more than 50,000 tunes to all wedding receptions, plus another 20,000 for postnuptials karaoke. When it isn't helping the recently wed raise the roof, Firehouse specializes in entertainment for bars, such as trivia nights, karaoke, and DJ sets. It also facilitates live-music bookings, helping great bands find great venues and vice versa.
In his 10 years of working as an event planner, Mike Shelton has realized one crucial truth: kids love to jump around. Mike's Moonwalks revolves around this maxim, supplying youths with a safe and clean space to leap. With an inventory of bounce-houses that includes an inflatable castle and a tropically themed slide—available dry or as a watery plunge—he brings buoyant fun to birthday parties, fundraisers, and carnivals. He and his crew handle the delivery and set-up, and then disassemble the inflatables once the celebration is over. Clients can reserve a bounce house for just two or three hours or for an entire day, which is usually how long it takes to fool yourself into thinking that you'll be able to dunk a basketball during your next scrimmage game.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
