Colleen’s Studio of Dance Arts develops rhythmic movements in students of all ability levels with a full suite of weekly dance lessons. Throughout the month, skillful instructors unmask the trade secrets of multifarious moves and grooves, from the classic trifecta of ballet, tap, and jazz to mid-postmodern hip hop, musical theater, and cheer dance. With gatherings of 15 or fewer dancers per lesson, each student is ensured individualized attention and the chance to perfect postures, commingle with fleet-footed peers, and transform every now and then into a swan. Liberated from the obligation of registration fees, prospective lords and ladies of the dance can freely peruse the online schedule for upcoming classes.
American bears are settling into hibernation in colder climates, so there's no better time for humans to gain physical superiority.

Witnessing car accidents is just another part of the job for Doctor of Chiropractic Rich Roth, who has been a chiropractor for more than two decades. Granted, these accidents happen in a controlled environment through postgraduate courses at Texas A&M's engineering extension program. With this additional education, Dr. Roth has been better able to ease his clients’ aches and pains—working on more than 12,000 injury cases and counting—from his Beaver Creek Health & Rehab office. To help patients achieve pain-free lifestyles, Dr. Roth and his team employ spinal decompressions, laser treatments, and physical therapy as they try to ease symptoms from auto accidents as well as everyday headaches, fatigue, and crippling hiccups.
Shortly after opening his practice in 2005, Dr. Roth knew he wanted to reach out further to his clients. To do this, he became a member of Club Reduce, a network of doctors dedicated to offering effective weight-loss services. At Beaver Creek, Dr. Roth assists patients in slimming their figures with body wraps, exercise programs, and noninvasive Lipo-Light treatments.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it's time to move on to the next station. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight machine, ladies pause at recovery stations to keep hearts pumping as exercisers walk, run, or jog in place. With each workout warrior exercising at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
