To prove this philosophy, the studio hosts weekly sessions where artists of all experience levels come together to create their own works of art based on an existing painting. Likewise, Blank Canvas encourages kids as young as pre-kindergarten and up to high-school age to follow their artistic impulses by attending classes and camps instead of drawing on the walls or painting the kitchen the wrong shade of mauve.

Few professionals can credit Flashdance with rerouting the course of their career. But the unconventional dance moves Richard Giorla saw in the film motivated the former Pennsylvania Ballet member to hit the streets of his new home, Manhattan, to learn break-dancing moves from dancers at the heart of the movement, trading his ballet expertise as payment. His dance career was in full swing when he was sidelined with an injury. After undergoing physical therapy, he was still not ready to take the stage, so he started teaching a ballet-barre class. Though he appreciated its stretching and toning components, Richard craved a more aerobic workout. So he created his own solution?Cardio Barre.

The workout consists of high-energy, no-impact movements that help students sculpt the long, slender body of a dancer without ever having to step foot in a traditional dance studio. As they balance at the ballet barre, pupils direct all their focus to one muscle group at a time while the entire body stays in motion. The approach?s pudge-melting abilities have made the fitness method a favorite of many health magazines and celebrities.

Cardio Barre?s Thousand Oaks location is piloted by Lili Merhavi-Surkin. Educated in marriage and family therapy, she believes in maintaining the vital balance between mental and physical health.
