The dual-purpose Center Stage & CheerAction facility combines an 1,800-square-foot harlequin-floor dance space with a 1,500-square-foot cheer suite to earn kids their tumbling and dance wings. Summer camps offer competition-grade gymnastics flooring for postschool entertainment such as the mini-tumblers camp, which harnesses youthful exuberance into a productive yield of handstands, cartwheels, backbends, and controlled levitation. Four-day camps feature prancing princesses, superhero hip-hop, musical theater, and a Harry Potter–themed string of activities and students of the stage can act, dance, and tumble their way through the three-day camp, which combines acrobatics with fewer wind-chapped activities such as water games, crafts, and snacks. The cheer camp gives chanters a venue for their newly acquired stunt and jump skills, offering performance time at a Tulsa Drillers Game and includes two complimentary tickets to the game.
Select Cinemas, the proprietors of RiverWalk Movies, believe that suburban moviegoers shouldn't have to go out of their way to catch Hollywood's latest offerings. They also believe that movie theaters can boost neighboring businesses, which is why everybody wins when they integrate themselves into communities. But movies matter most, and RiverWalk Movies has an edge on urban multiplexes. All eight of their screens are wall-to-wall. All auditoriums feature stadium, rocking-chair-style seating, which prevents neck craning when sitting behind Bigfoot, and digital surround sound fit for humans with 10 ears. RiverWalk also prides itself on its concessions, especially the popcorn, and offers free shows to satiate kids during summer vacations.
Like a beloved T-shirt or a broken-in couch, Elm Street Pub is in the business of comfort, welcoming visitors with hearty sandwiches, traditional pub fare, and sudsy libations served in a low-key taproom. Digits descend on finger foods including chicken tenders or beer-battered french fries, and tall draft pours fuel all-night games of eight ball on the pool table. Modern and old-school hits pump out of the pub’s jukebox, providing an aural backdrop for friendly dance-offs or attempts to help a percolator kick its caffeine habit.
Anchored in the Fontana Shopping Center, Magoo's has filled bellies and entertained the people attached to those bellies for nearly two decades. Every day of the week, lunch and dinner spreads prompt a constant procession of plates, which arrive at tables lugging half-pound burgers and country-fried steaks. After emerging victorious from their meal or a mozzarella-stick duel with a friend, diners celebrate with a drink from the drinks bar or a game of billiards on one of the restaurant's 30 felted battlegrounds. TVs flicker above with sports action, and during the week, music fills the air during karaoke nights or live performances.

The Belly Dance Academy of Tulsa operates under the inspirational and gyrational mind of Shadia Dahlal, a 30-year dancing veteran and the vice president of the National Association for Teacher Certification in Middle Eastern Dance. Inside her spacious 3,200-square-foot studio, Shadia and her enthusiastic instructors treat graceful guests with a comprehensive class structure and a custom-built floating floor—the same surface used by the Tulsa Ballet. On the floor, students with little to no prior dance experience can slink into character in either the level 1 belly-dance class, which teaches the basic fundamentals of tummy toning and shaking, or the burlesque class, a strip-free celebration adorned by an abundance of feathers, rhinestones, and other eye-drawing accessories. During intermediate and advanced classes, experienced students hone their hip whispering by learning choreography, stage presence, and how to perform in various venues. Regardless of level, each class provides one full hour of low-impact cardio and creative exploration.
