  • Encore Studio
    Encore Studio's owner and art director, Karen King Flores, is a professional dance instructor certified through Dance Masters of America and a former apprentice of Robert Joffrey, founder of the Joffrey Ballet. Her graceful performances appeared in such esteemed companies as the Houston Ballet and the Richmond Ballet before she opened her studio's doors in the early 1990s. With 25 years of experience teaching dance under her belt, Karen and her talented staff of teachers—who hail from international dance companies, Vegas shows, and the Kirov in Russia—ground each dance class in fundamental skills and proper technique as they teach students to perform original, age-appropriate choreography. Their well-rounded curriculum includes instruction in jazz, ballet, tap, and hip-hop, a collection of techniques that falls in line with the instructors' priority of letting each participant have fun as they learn. Encore Studio's welcoming, noncompetitive environment allows talent to blossom without fear of judgment from an ambitious old tap shoe.

  • Art Adventures
    There's no rushing creativity, which is why the instructors at Art Adventures present students with the fundamental techniques, and then allow them create a truly individual piece at their own pace. The center's classes are open to students of all skill levels, including adults as well as children as young as 4, and they explore mediums such as sketching, painting, photography, and clay sculpting. By keeping class attendance small, the instructors are capable of providing more personalized feedback while helping students find the confidence that they need to express themselves through artwork. The classes may use a reference photograph as a source of inspiration; however, it is up to students to use that inspiration as they see fit and exercise their own imagination. At the end of every year, Art Adventures hosts its own gallery show where students are encouraged to display their pieces and debate the differences between the shades of eggshell and ivory.

  • Sparkle Me Wild 5K
    Runners race down the road, leaving splashes of color behind them and on one another. Such is the scene at every Sparkle Me Wild, a color run event incorporating a whole lot of sparkle. During the 5K race itself, they arm their runners with packets of pure color, made from a mix of glitter and dyed, organic cornstarch. Though Sparkle Me Wild is a fun way for families to cut loose together, it also supports local charities, as well as GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a national charity that fights childhood obesity.

  • Studio X
    Studio X's exotic dancing lessons offer twofold benefits. The first is physical; students quickly burn calories and build core strength by following the regimen detailed in the studio's pole-fitness and dance classes. The second benefit is the increased self-confidence that students build while stretching and shimmying in a supportive environment that, like Oprah's tree fort, is for women only. Men aren't completely left out, however?Studio X also hosts separate pole and aerial fitness classes for guys.
