All About Kids inspires self-confidence in children through a varied curriculum of sports programs at its sprawling 47,000-square-foot Louisville flagship and equally impressive Oldham County location. Kids can undertake classes in dance, gymnastics, swimming, basketball, and soccer. Aside from organized sports, both locations feature play areas loaded with ball pits, inflatable mazes, and tunnels.
The Dragon Pub preps the edibles found in traditional English drinking and eating establishments, plus its own house specialties and health- and animal-friendly options. Thirsty diners munch on bangers and mash—thick sausages steamed in Guinness beer served with hearty mashed potatoes submerged in red-onion gravy ($7.95)—which couples well with a pint of Guinness ($4) or Woodchuck draft cider ($3.50). Fiery Dragon's Breath wings heat up taste buds in broods of six ($4.50) or 12 ($7.50), with buffalo, bourbon barbecue, and Cajun-style options. Herbivorous beasts may mash molars against the portobello and organic baby-spinach quesadilla ($7.95) or the portobello burger topped with baby spinach, tomato, provolone cheese, and pesto mayonnaise ($7.95). A variety of bottled domestic, craft, and import beers and local hard liquors usher solids down gullets.
With weekly entertainment and nightly televised sports action, Jock's Sports Bar & Grill activates patrons’ fun sensors while enticing their taste buds with a classic grill menu. Invite a date, best bud, or favorite teddy bear to join in an appetizer such as Jock's nachos piled high with beef, gooey cheese, and jalapeños ($5.95). Entrees, including the half-pound deep-fried fish sandwich ($6.95) and the grilled ham-and-cheese ($4.50) become even more indulgent beside sides such as the beer-battered onion rings ($3.50).
Set to the warm, soaring treble of carefully selected ballroom music, Ballroom East’s certified instructors, Linda Jackson and Charles Jones, glide across straw-hued expanses of hardwood before the towering mirrors in their studio. The maestros, who have studied in the United States and Europe for more than 20 years, introduce duos to rug-cutting fundamentals in lessons that last between 45–60 minutes on Wednesday or Friday night. Pupils mingle with up to 55 fellow dancers or recruit potential stars for their bubble-wrap-stomping team. After instructors guide male and female students through respective steps, they pair them up to practice. Students can twirl closely with their accompanying partner or chatter with new friends as they switch throughout the class. Each month, curriculums explore a new dance, supplying students with plenty of new moves to whip out during weddings or after procuring a coveted parking spot.
A panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your three lessons, or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness-seeker looking for a fun new way to get in ship shape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful by adding a few swing steps to your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, the lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits.
