Students from Expressions Dance Arts have accomplished some impressive things. During their tenures at the nearly two-decade-old academy, they’ve racked up championships at national competitions, guest performed at NFL, CFL, NBA games as well as at Disney World, and never once used the word “imply” when they meant “infer.” They’ve also gone on to success after their time at the centre. Some have later trained at the National Ballet School, danced with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, and studied musical theatre at Sheridan College, while others have participated in the opening and closing ceremonies of the Canada Games.
It’s easy to see why they’ve flourished. The centre, with its professional-quality flooring, sound, and lighting, is tailor-made for preparing for a career in the performing arts. And it doesn’t hurt that classes are led by instructors affiliated with a dozen dance and cheerleading organizations, including CDTA and the NFL.
There isn't an age requirement when it comes to being a rock star. At Studio Arts Academy & Rock School, students as young as 6 weeks old can learn music basics in the Music Together class, an early childhood program that taps into children's innate musical abilities, such as twins crying in two-part harmony. Older youngsters can head to band programs such as Little Rockers?a fun-filled class that explores percussion, keyboards, and singing?and Rock School, which helps participants hone in on which instrument they want to master should they join a band or score all of their conversations.
Birds chirp and leaves rustle as pups trot down the nature trail. Water splashes as dogs bound through the agility course at the in-ground swimming hole known as Canine Cove. Country Paws Boarding's rural retreat sprawls over 6,000 square feet, where daycare charges burn pent-up energy in several quarter-acre play yards, keeping them from using their owners' shoes for origami projects when they get home. Overnight guests enjoy private suites with covered patios, and grooming sessions can be scheduled to keep dogs looking clean and fresh.
Since 1950, Texmain's laundry specialists have kept wardrobes in mint condition with methods designed for the unique properties of each fabric. They dry clean an array of garments and meticulously remove cake, rice, and other stains from delicate wedding gowns. For structural issues, tailors can replace missing buttons or mend rips.

Family photo phenom Julie Duggan captures mantle-worthy moments in her welcoming studio. After combing back cowlicks and polishing postures, eager subjects can strut to the studio with family, friends, or formerly estranged chess partners. During a photo session up to 30-minutes long, Duggan will expertly identify and flatter subjects' good sides, feeding them a steady stream of nutrient-rich flashes and f-stops. Satiated subjects will then receive a password to view the 20–30 images online, as well as a print-ready disc of every pose, allowing them to pinpoint which of their cohorts is a vampire. Check out Duggan's gallery for evidence of her precious moment-capturing prowess.
