Alonzo Boschulte remembers his own stage fright when he guides beginning students onto the dance floor. With years of training, he grew from an amateur to a certified ballroom teacher and professional competitor registered with the National Dance Council. At Savannah Ballroom Dancing, he strives to echo this journey by transforming total novices into confident twirlers.
Lessons in more than 15 varieties of Latin and ballroom dance occupy the school's floor space. With pupils ranging in age from 6 to older than 80, the instructors stress the importance of mixing private, group, and practice classes to expose everyone to different dance scenarios. They also laud the fitness benefits of learning to dance, which hones one's sense of rhythm and muscular strength more safely than being at the bottom of a vertical conga line.
During their years spent working as fitness trainers, Drew and Shazi Edmonds have trained clients from all walks of life—from busy moms to brawny athletes to reality-TV star Ruby Gettinger. They bring their passion for fitness and years of experience to Train Me 24/7, where they guide clients toward slimmer and stronger selves through one-on-one and small-group training sessions. Drew and Shazi also conduct boot-camp classes, leading students through high-intensity workouts of strength, cardio, and core-training exercises.
The trainers at Xtreme Performance Fitness tailor-make fitness regimens with their clients’ goals in mind. Personal trainers help their charges shed stubborn pounds by not only challenging them in the gym, but also holding them accountable in the kitchen. They explain the proper amount of calories clients should consume to lose weight, including how many should be devoted to protein, fat, and carbs. Once that's taken care of, they turn their focus back to exercise, unleashing intense cardiovascular and strength-training routines. For those seeking an extra boost of encouragement, group fitness classes promise similar results but in a collaborative group environment.
Salon De Baile Dance Studio’s instructors help couples create a custom and unforgettable first dance for their wedding. Choreographed dances cull from a variety of dance techniques, including ballroom, belly dance, tap, jazz, salsa, Argentine tango, line dance, and ballet. Each technique is also the focus of classes held for beginners through advanced dancers and kids through senior citizens. The studio also offers dance fitness classes, which help strutters and swayers build up a sweat during cardio-focused lessons.
Wing chun, a Chinese martial art, follows the belief that the person with the better body structure—including balance and fitness level—wins in a battle. Using that model, instructors teach self-defense skills that draw on fitness exercises so participants can double their workout. Wing chun classes are tailored to adults and children as young as 6, with private lessons available for more one-on-one attention to details.
