  • Star Dance School
    A quick study in graceful movement, Peter Gelzhinsky competed in the finals at the USA National Dance Championship just three years after taking up the craft. Parlaying his quick learning into effective teaching methods, Peter now leads hot-footed hopefuls through lessons that cover such social ballroom dances as merengue, cha-cha, and the hustle. Students can also breakdance to the thumping beats of hip-hop classes, or sashay with a provided partner through the salsa-like steps of the bachata. Many students enlist in Star Dance School’s lessons in preparation for a wedding or the grand opening of a laundromat with a dance floor.

  • Wai Kru
    Since ancient times, Thai students, fighters, and artists have performed the wai kru ritual to honor the teachers who make their study possible. Composed of everyone from Navy boxers to championship jujitsu fighters, the staff of martial-arts instructors at Wai Kru gym knows the value of experience. Kru John, for instance, has traveled to Japan, Brazil, and Thailand to hone his muay thai kickboxing expertise, attending more than 20 training camps throughout Asia and earning a certification from the Thai government. Training guests as diverse as beginning boxers and professional MMA fighters, Wai Kru bolsters training regimens with cardio machines, weights, and open mat space. The gym also sports a boxing ring and a 24-foot octagon, so shaped to avoid having to vacuum peanut shells from a 90-degree corner.

  • Boston YMCA
    The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility." This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.

  • Strike First Krav Maga
    At Strike First Krav Maga, the first job of co-owners Adam Gleason and Ilya Akhter is to create a highly stressful atmosphere in order to replicate a realistic self-defense scenario where senses are heightened. Once students are sufficiently stressed, the duo begins teaching the tactics of Krav Maga, a self-defense technique used by the Israeli Defense Force. Akhter—a former sergeant in the Israeli Defense Force’s anti-terrorist special forces unit—has years of hands-on experience and Gleason’s background includes 5 years of Krav Maga training, along with experience in Kung Fu, and American kickboxing. And though each instructor strives to maintain an intense environment, they treat each student respectfully and tailor their lesson to fit all levels of skill, physical fitness, and experience.
