The passionate professional instructors at Performing Arts Academy teach dancers of all ages and experience levels to wiggle waists, shimmy shoulders, and tap toes. From elegant limb-bending ballet to floor-stomping hip-hop, the academy fills a three-night-per-week schedule with a diverse selection of group lessons, placing students by age and ability. The 30-minute Tiny Tot Tumbling course allows rambunctious munchkins to hobnob with one another as they learn the art of somersaults, cartwheels, and fire-eating, while grown-ups undulate their trunks in the one-hour Adult Belly Dancing class. A half-hour of Irish dancing instruction encourages legs to kick and tap with the unbridled energy of a poltergeist on roller skates. Each dance class wraps with a year-end recital, enabling performers to gracefully gallivant across the stage and validate the year’s lessons.
Lawrence Muruako is waging a full-on rebellion against the obesity epidemic. With a degree in exercise science from Ole Miss and a personal-trainer certification from the American Council of Exercise, he brings an extensive body of fitness knowledge to the battle.
Lawrence’s boot camps begin with an evaluation for each student, taking complex measurements that move beyond waist size, such as muscle to fat ratio. Armed with that knowledge, he leads sessions filled with plyometrics and cardio exercises, challenging students to negotiate obstacle courses and sweat through interval training. For guests with physical limitations, Lawrence tweaks the sessions, ensuring that his students can work safely toward their goals, whether they are to lose weight, build muscle, increase endurance, or finally get the confidence to ask the boss if casual Friday can include mascot costumes.
