Bree Johnson was just 14 when she kicked off her lustrous dancing career as a performer in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Olympics. Since then, she's carried the torch of success even further, eventually winning titles such as Miss Congeniality and landing dream jobs on So You Think You Can Dance, the MTV Music Awards, and numerous TV commercials. Fueled by her successful foray in the world of professional dance, she decided to share her passion in an accessible way that inspires others to lead healthy and active lives. To pull off such an endeavor, she enlisted a team of talented instructors to help her cultivate a supportive and educational community where dancers of all fitness levels can get in shape during unique aerobic Ballet Blast fitness classes.
Bree and her team combine intense cardio with dancer-specific moves while blaring high-energy tunes, aiming to equip students with increased flexibility, slimmer waistlines, and lean muscles similar to those of ballerinas and drawn-and-quartered bodybuilders.
Ken Sanders Rare Books, whose eponymous owner has been featured on Antiques Roadshow and ABC 4 News, ably feeds text consumers with various new, used, and rare volumes ($1.50+).

Ken also hones in on pieces that cover Utah and the Mormons, Native Americana, the literary West, and modern first editions. Bookworms can further burrow through the wide variety of modern and classic authors, including Dave Eggers, David Foster Wallace, J.D. Salinger, E.L. Doctorow, and more.
At Frosty Darling, the displayed art and giftature is part throwback, part homage to modernity, and part pop culture; the New York Times calls it "whimsical." Artful items include handmade barrettes ($4–$6) and felt brooches ($6), as well as a variety of pins ($1), bookmarks ($1.50), soaps ($5–$8), coin purses ($4), and distinctly scented erasers ($3). Gentry and her fellow area artists produce brilliant letterpress cards ($4) and postcards ($1), both of which pair nicely with Frosty Darling's well-stocked shelves of old-timey candy, such as Atomic Fireballs, candy cigarettes, and Fruit Stripe gum ($0.15–$1.50). The store is open Tuesday–Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.

In 1986, the founders of Advanced Window Products designed their company to focus on two things: crafting their own windows and professionally installing them. The idea enabled the company to act as a one-stop contractor for their clients' window needs. The desire to push themselves toward even better service led the company's skilled technicians to create windows with such features as LoE-366 glass, which can keep out up to 25 degrees in the summer heat, insulate up to 75 degrees in the winter, and allow better views of neighbors' gardens than the traditional fist-punched hole in the wall. More than 25 years later, Advanced Window Products' technicians continue to update homeowners' windows and offering free in-home estimates before every job.
