Q&A with Anna, Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Our classes are always fresh and current. We have all certified Zumba instructors that encourage their clients to keep coming back. We have a warm welcoming environment and all levels are welcome.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We offer a children's dance program as well, including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, and combo. We also teach mommy and baby fitness classes!
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.

The co-founder of the Escuela de Tango, Marcelo Solis, has been an Argentine tango dancer and teacher for more than 25 years. Solis formed the Escuela de Tango dance school in 2012. The San Francisco location is one of a few branches of the school, which is headquartered in Buenos Aires—the so-called capital of tango. In San Francisco, a cadre of skilled instructors offers private lessons with one-on-one coaching as well as group classes suited to all skill levels and astrological signs. If you want to put your new moves into practice, the school frequently hosts and sponsors milongas—special dance celebrations with music, food, and drinks.
Award-winning dancer Hans Schmitt founded Dance Boulevard back in 1997 as "The Floor." Since then, he has coached students of all sashaying abilities, enlisting the expertise of several instructors and the gravity-reducing power of NASA wallpaper to hold group and private lessons. The studio comes alive every weeknight with styles ranging from tango to swing, and regularly scheduled dance parties give guests and teachers the chance to schmooze between spins. Promoting educational outreach through rhythm, youth programs instill a passion for ballet, jazz and tap among newer generations.
