Ladies shed more than just calories as they twirl around poles in classes at Swing Fit—their inhibitions go out the window, too. The studio’s experienced instructors inject a healthy dose of fun into fitness as they guide students of all levels through 60-minute workouts. Though cleverly disguised as fun and flirty dance routines, these pole-fitness workouts target the abs and arms with strength and cardio exercises. The studio's new hip-hop cardio class presents an equally stylish option for staying in shape. This modern routine blends a bass-driven soundtrack with exercises designed to send each client's metabolism and street cred skyrocketing. When they aren’t leading classes six days a week, Swing Fit’s instructors teach girls sensual ways to twirl and spin during private, group parties.

Breweries, restaurants, your very own home—nowhere is off-limits for The Paint Social. A workshop leader gathers a rainbow of acrylic paint tubes, grabs a stack of 16x20 canvases, and uses a net to catch a gaggle of paintbrushes from the sky before hightailing it to that day's workshop location. If it's a Paint Brunch, the one-to-three-hour workshop will take place at a café. If it's a Taste & Paint, it'll be at a winery or brewery, and the session will include a tasting. If it's a private event, it'll be at someone's home. These social workshops aren't academic lessons. Instead, they're fun, friendly events that require no previous painting experience.

East Essence Chef, LLCprovides the public with opportunities to learn the recipes and cooking styles common to halal cuisine. Part of the company's educational mission takes place in a classroom, where Chef Nicholas Eaton teaches small groups halal cooking techniques while carefully observing dietary strictures. In his classroom, he uses meats from halal-approved suppliers, as well as knives, utensils, and cookware prepared without ever touching alcohol. He blends traditional halal recipes with
a bit of international flair,
thanks to his time spent cooking everywhere from Florida to Germany.
East Essence also organizes public events where visitors can learn other cooking techniques, sample recipes, and meet people also interested in the halal lifestyle. The team helps organize events such as the Halal Food Festival, a full-day gathering of chefs and diners that includes cooking demonstrations, tastings, and more.
