  • All Fired Up‎
    All Fired Up!'s homey studio invites artists of all ages to participate in kiln-fired activities. Whether perusing the shelves laden with blank pottery or cutting and arranging colored glass to design their own plate, visitors get the chance to create personalized mementos and dishware. Classes let students try their hands at a pottery wheel, and kids' parties keep birthday guests distracted with painting while their parents wrap last-minute gifts.

  • Premier Flight Academy
    The lesson begins on the ground with a pre-flight briefing, after which air students will strap into the cockpits of Premier Flight's airplanes, such as the Garmin 430 GPS, for a 30- to 45-minute ride through the skies. These safe, sturdy workhorses of the clouds feature a large canopy design that provides excellent, beginner-friendly stability and unobstructed, beautiful views of Ohio and the giant fireball that hovers over Australia. Premier Flight?s helpful skysperienced instructors will keep the plane in firm control as you learn to navigate the skies, before landing for a post-flight recap and roundtable discussion on the narrative arc of X-Men. Though you won't be certified to fly alone after this lesson, you'll be on your way to going solo. Call to schedule your lesson.

  • Lifesource Yoga
    Although Lifesource normally dedicates itself to the age-old practice of yoga, occasional age-appropriate exotic-dance workshops shimmy their way onto the class roster. Instructor Jessica Rawson began teaching at Lifesource in 2009 and has 28 lunar rotations, or two years, of private pole-dancing and exotic-dance lessons under her belt. During the course of the two-hour workshop, Jessica will take the pole's helm and instruct participants in a variety of exotic dance techniques, from pole dance and lap dance to strip-tease techniques and cheeky burlesque moves. Although participants will wear their clothing, the techniques can be easily applied to garment-free activities at a later time. As your inner seductress makes her way to the surface, you'll build confidence and engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a self-assured saunter.

  • KidzArt Akron Art & Drama Summer Camp
    KidzArt is an art program that aims to help children and communities develop creativity and confidence while art-education programs are being scissored from school budgets across the country. The five-day art and drama summer camp, which is led by instructors who have completed a rigorous training program, brings kids together for creativity-expanding exercises including drawing, painting, acting exercises, and set-design projects. KidzArt Akron provides all artist-grade materials (Prismacolor double-sided markers, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, Sculpey clay, etc.) and pre-approved snacks. To show off each student's progress after the week of workshopping, there is a gallery showing of artwork and a performance of a short student-written play. Call ahead to reserve your child's spot in camp before Friday, August 13; purchase two Groupons to send your young one with a friend or sibling.

  • Oliver Arts Education Services
    Dustin Oliver has served as the choir and drama director at Akron North High School and the fine-arts director at Celebration Church, so he knows a thing or two about putting on a performance. Add to that nearly 15 years practicing the guitar, nearly 20 years honing his piano and voice skills, and at least a few minutes humming the theme to M.A.S.H., and it becomes obvious that this artist is a multi-talented whiz. An accomplished musician and composer with a Bachelor’s degree in music from Southeastern University, Dustin is earning his Master’s in theatre from the University of Akron, making him a veritable double threat and a valuable resource for aspiring musicians and actors. When not adding to his own skill set, he leads private and group music lessons in guitar, piano, bass, and voice for students ages 5 and older—as well as private and group acting lessions—following well-established curricula.

  • Xtreme Fitness - Akron
    Xtreme Fitness flings open the doors to guests of all skill levels during classes that range from Zumba to Brazilian jujitsu, accommodating diverse tastes. While guests work out in the gym, the certified trainers patrol the free-weight area, cardio equipment, and the 700-square-foot matted space meant for martial arts and one-person trust falls, dispensing workout tips. They also help guests grasp onto the still-beating heart of their fitness goals during private, custom training sessions. When not absorbing self-defense strikes and yoga poses during classes, members can pop into the facility 24 hours a day to rehearse their conditioning routines or hide from hoards of lazy vampires.
