At Studio B Dance Co., owner Brandi Doyle and her friendly team of instructors empower youngsters to express themselves through the art of dance, whether recreationally or competitively. Their dance camps and classes for ages 3 and older cover a variety of disciplines, such as ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. Students can show off their graceful footwork during an array of special events held throughout the year. Adults can also visit the studio to participate in rump-shaking Zumba classes that synchronize rhythmic cardio exercises with energetic Latin music.
Headed by Juilliard-trained dancer and former Princeton Ballet Society of New Jersey soloist Kathleen Rathbun, Syracuse City Ballet enriches the cultural soil of central New York with professional ballet performances and top-flight training. During each season, the company stages stalwarts of the classical repertoire. Students might don their slippers to animate Cinderella or Swan Lake, but a yearly Nutcracker production rings in the holiday season regardless.

At Create Art Studio, owner and instructor Karyn equips prospective paint-slingers with the instruction and inspiration to realize artistic dreams during step-by-step classes, private parties, and open-studio sessions. The studio seamlessly combines two of Karyn's greatest passions, drawing on both her art-education degree from Purdue University and more than 10 years of classroom experience as a teacher.
During the two-hour step-by-step sessions, she and other instructors equip aspiring artistes with all of the necessities to create an original masterpiece, including smocks, easels, canvases, paints, brushes, and haughty French accents. In addition to the instructors' aid, creatively challenged participants can glean clever ideas from the inspiration wall, which helps pupils explore art-worthy subjects beyond traditional bowls of fruit and sunsets. Like conscientious speakeasies, the studio invites guests aged 21 and older to bring along their own snacks and alcohol.
While some artists gravitate toward certain media, Ilene Layow—or “Eye” to her friends since childhood—unabashedly loves them all: glass, pencil, clay, pastel, metals, acrylic. Her body of artwork is staggeringly diverse. She has designed murals for both homes and businesses, painted family portraits, created silver jewelry, formed intricate candleholders out of clay, and fused glass to form night lights perfect for scaring off closet monsters that hate beauty. She has even developed her own art form she calls “formscapes,” which combine the gentle contours of landscapes with abstracted shapes. In flexible classes tucked into a tidy ranch house, she introduces many of the crafts she loves to teen and adult students.
