Astudia Dance World embraces all types of music—even kinds that haven't been written yet. Their Jam class trades order for on-the-spot creativity, encouraging students of any instrument to show up and practice the art of improvisation. It's a far cry from the more structured TRAC class (which stands for theory, reading, arranging, and composing), but both offerings celebrate creativity under the supervision of expert instructors.
Directed by Jane Maurer and William Blair, this team helps pupils of all ages explore the wide and varied world of music and dance. Their lessons cover classical styles such as jazz, tap, and ballet in addition to acrobatics, hip-hop, and musical theater, wherein every actor is required to carry a tuba. Meanwhile, instrument classes focus on the piano, guitar, or drums. All of these skills come together in recital performances, where parents can witness their children's progress and cheer them on.
The fitness instructors, personal trainers, and nutritionists at ClubSport wield the foundations of total-body wellness: detailed knowledge and cutting-edge equipment. Group classes such as cardio kickboxing, cycling, and circuit training showcase routines for all fitness levels, seven days a week. Personal-training sessions, meanwhile, bring help exercisers develop their own fitness plans and face down the imaginary knight that guards every piece of weight-training equipment.
ClubSport also transforms bodies outside the fitness studio and weight room. A self-described resort-style aquatic center features several lap and exercise pools where swimmers can fine-tune their breaststrokes and favorite shark calls. At an on-site spa, massage therapists ease muscle tension with modalities ranging from hot stone and prenatal to trigger point and reflexology.
Inspired by Michelle Obama’s Let's Move! initiative, Lily Sirsy set out to do her part to fight childhood obesity and promote lifetimes of healthy habits. Her passion resulted in Jumpfit Kids, a safe, colorful space for Nevada families to play, exercise, and create. Amid the 3,000-square-foot play gym, tots can defy gravity in one of two indoor bounce houses, tell tall tales with puppet theater, or expand their palates and built-in water wings in a variety of art, cooking, and exercise classes. Junior-size cardio equipment in bright primary colors fills the kids' fitness center, encouraging whippersnappers to work up a sweat or produce enough electricity to power a gingerbread house.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The patented Smartraining machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change, to constantly challenge the body. Exercisers can track their results and body composition measurements online and even compare individual fitness levels to others in the Koko FitClub community.
As the sun starts to rise over the grassy fields and hiking trails of Paseo Vista Park, the Sin City Waist Trimmers morning class is already hard at work. Instructors' voices echo through the cool morning air, guiding and motivating students of all shapes and sizes through a diverse array of high-intensity exercises. Morning and after-work classes help exercisers roast calories on the running trail, slim midsections through core drills, and increase endurance while participants flip massive tires across an open field. The friendly trainers welcome students of all athletic abilities, never singling students out or barking commands like a drill sergeant trying to win respect from a pack of hounds.
