After performing as a soloist with the Metropolitan Ballet Society, Lori Burton sashayed out of her pointe shoes and down the avenue of her new, fiery passion. She took the Argentine tango circuit by storm, showing off her 25 years of dance experience on ESPN, PBS tango exhibitions, and in several well-known Detroit news publications. So infatuated was she with her fueling her soul as well as her knowledge of Argentine tango, she traveled to Buenos Aires twice a year to study with the art form's masters. It's this commitment to excellence that has garnered Lori numerous top teacher awards and a loyal following at Argentine Tango Detroit.
The light–footed headmaster recruited a team of experienced instructors to teach graceful dance steps and passionate partner work. They designed their private or group tango classes to benefit dancers of all abilities, guiding students through stylized moves and complex spins during beginners and advanced lessons. They also train feet to flit through salsa dance's high-energy moves, and lead private dance lessons so that students may conquer their crippling fear of dance shoes in peace. Weekly milongas, or open practice parties, offer students a chance to practice their new moves in a judgment-free environment. Argentine Tango Detroit also hosts a variety of accomplished guest instructors, who broaden students' horizons with their own unique dancing styles and perspectives.

Vixen Fitness’s certified instructor Danielle Green was fed up with the lack of exercise programs designed to empower women. After a year of throwing private dance parties in her clients’ homes, Danielle realized that many women pursue fitness to feel desirable, which involves not only simple aesthetics, but also self-confidence. Her insights panned out. Today, her all-female fitness operation includes two studios where she and her team of sultry instructors help women unleash their inner Aphrodites. In a comfortable setting, women swivel into leaner bodies during pole-dancing and sensual-dance classes. When they’re not teaching lap dance and aerobic strip-tease classes, teachers help students carve out fitter frames with Zumba and yogalates—a hybrid of yoga and Pilates—and host the original bachelorette and girl’s night out parties that inspired the studio's beginning.
