All Zumba instructors claim to create a party-like atmosphere, but Raquel Call delivers on the promise by taking her routines all the way into the club. During evening classes at Vice Ultra Lounge, the lights dim and the beats resonate as though Raquel and her students are kicking off nights on the town. Special events incorporate themes and costumes, such as retro leggings for an ‘80s bash or sweatpants designed by Betsy Ross for Independence Day. Raquel also pays homage to her Brazilian roots with Carnival celebrations and Brazilian Nights, where she showcases her background in samba while dancing to live South American music.

Amid all the gyrating, it's easy for her pupils to forget that they're burning calories. However, Raquel's testimonials and weight-loss stories speak to the benefits of her classes. Her expertise enables her to host master classes with established guest instructors, and earned her Diablo magazine's Best of the East Bay award for Best Zumba Class in 2012. By helming additional classes in yoga, samba, and Zumba Toning, she helps her guests pursue their fitness goals with a combination of poise and pizzazz.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

On the winding dirt trails that snake through Mount Diablo?s nearly untouched terrain, the sound of cars disappears, and riders can imagine they have been transported back to the 18th century. Nestled in the mountain?s foothills, a 20-stall horse ranch and equestrian center teaches fledgling equestrians the art of trotting down those trails. Arabians expert Nancy Dupont has spent more than four decades presiding over Castle Rock Arabians, where instructors boast accreditation with the Certified Horsemanship Association and many of them have claimed championship titles.

The center?s lessons welcome children as young as 2 to join a Tiny Riders program, whereas older pupils who have conquered the basics can learn advanced techniques, such as jumping through bank-vault walls. In addition to hosting classes and trail rides for students, the center organizes camps and hosts parties for birthday celebrants or pegasi celebrating the sprouting of their wings.
