It's Wednesday night. As workers across the city face the prospect of another hum-drum commute, a select few make their way to corner of Allen and Casa Grande. There, instead of enduring the scenes of gridlock, these students of movement immerse themselves in the sounds and steps of Latin America. They're met by Lumina Academy's seasoned instructors, who've created a salsa curriculum that leads small groups through basic steps to advanced, performance-ready moves, all with an emphasis on salsa as a social dance.

Whether they come with or without a partner, students of all experience levels gain familiarity and skill during small group sessions before showing off their newly acquired moves at parties. Classes emphasize lead-and-follow techniques, with instructors encouraging students to rotate partners so they can practice with various statures, skill levels, and numbers of feet.

In addition to salsa, the school specializes in other dance styles ranging from stately flamenco to hypnotic belly-dancing. To complement the grace and rhythm of their dance classes, instructors also offer exercise-based classes such as yoga and hip-hop boot camp, which combines sweat-inducing moves with invigorating music.

French-born writer and school director Caroline fills teaching positions at La Petite Ecole Française with only native French speakers. That way, students will be guided through grammar, vocabulary, and conversational styles as they're currently used in Francophone countries, rather than relying on the potentially outdated info available from textbooks or someone who's just watched Children of Paradise several times. A wide range of programs helps bilingual students stay in touch with their French side and introduces adult learners to solid fundamentals. Special events deepen cultural awareness with movie screenings and art-exhibit visits.

Classes at Creative World Art School don't simply teach the skills of painting, sketching, and sculpting. Instead, the non-profit's instructors encourage children and teens to view each project as an exercise in critical thinking and self-expression. This emphasis on enrichment above all else helps students develop a sense of curiosity and creativity that can help kids succeed outside of the studio as well. To accomplish this, the teachers lead age-appropriate programs that utilize both traditional and contemporary media—everything from drawing and book-binding to digital computer animation and e-book-binding.

The Spa at Commerce Casino ensorcells forms with treatments that sap away stress and improve introductory aesthetics. Revivify tired mugs with the 30-minute Fast Signature Facial, which begins with an in-depth skin analysis that identifies epidermal problems, including dryness, excessive oil, and difficult-to-detect camouflage pigmentation. Pore cleaning unclogs acne-prone skin, followed by a choice of a hydrating or deep-cleansing mask that lets face-bearers customize their rejuvenating treatments. In the therapeutic Swedish massage, skillful digits ease kinked-up bone movers, leaching out achiness and leaving muscles relaxed enough to avenge crushing Twister defeats from arrogant Gumbys. An ionic foot bath finishes off spa sessions, gently coaxing toxins out through feet with the allure of a warm bath.
