Helmed by an award-winning performer and experienced instructor, Sabrina Bellydancer imparts bountiful body waves and seductive shimmitude to movers of all skill levels. Whether you wish to burn calories, tastefully flutter a tummy flag tattoo, or sensually dodge paintballs, the weekly beginner classes work to tame lower halves Monday through Wednesday. Aspirant belly-dance junkies can get their fix learning classic movements such as hip circles, figure eights, undulations, and shimmies. On Monday evenings, mixed-level classes combine levels one, two, and three for instruction that tailors its intensity to each participant’s appropriate skill level and favorite meteorologist. Non-noisy hip scarves are permitted, and dancers can feel free to don dance shoes or proudly brandish naked feet.

The jazz standard ?Flying Home? brought Savoy Swing Club?s founders together in 1993 at a dance camp, after which the group of friends began meeting regularly to keep the choreography fresh in their minds. The troupe?s dedication to the lindy hop and other jazz-era dances gradually blossomed into the club?s current calendar of professionally staffed classes, workshops, and dance events. Classes grouped by skill level progressively transform students with two left feet or three right toes into fleet-footed hoofers, imparting classic moves that help nurture a sense of rhythm and speed. Each week, students of all levels can take part in Savoy Mondays, a decade-long tradition, as DJs and a single trumpeting swan provide background music for dancers to sharpen their moves. And on the first and third Fridays of every month, the basement of the local Bagel Deli becomes the Blues Underground, where a free introductory blues lesson is followed by a late night of dancing.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, 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.

At many salons, the relaxation ends as soon as the last split end has been snipped and every newly painted nail has dried; but that’s not the case at Bloom Salon, where clients are encouraged to linger longer in the Relaxation Garden housed in the salon’s back room. Of course, they might find themselves relaxed enough after enjoying a luxurious manicure with paraffin wax or after spending the afternoon curled up under the dryer to nap alongside Mozelle, the salon's resident pup.
