There are so many wonderful things about this dance studio. I came to Dance 101 on recommendation from a friend in New York City (where I use to live) and it has certainly lived up to the solid reputation that it has built within the dance community. I would describe myself as a beginner and, after having my second child, I needed a place that would not feel intimadating. It is beginner friendly, and the instructors there really give dancers of all levels a good technical foundation, a sense of fun, style and a strong workout. The first class I took was Ballet 101 with Brad McCaskill, who is just one of the most outstanding teachers I have every come across to date and is extremely approachable. He is professionally accomplished (recognized around the world), technique oriented, passionate about his students and has a great sense of humor that keeps the class interesting. It is a good entry point to start back into dance and get in shape. There are over 50+ Discover classes offered every week and I never get bored trying new things as well. The best advice I can offer is get a dance pass first and try a few different classes to see what area/teachers you like the best. The wonderful thing is that you do not have to commit to a membership or class contract upfront---it affords you a lot of flexibility. Based upon other studios with their quality of teachers, the prices are in line and certainly, in my opnion, worth it.

I took my kids to Mighty Jumps this weekend and really enjoyed the experience. My 3 reasons: 1. I was able to get work done using their free wi-fi. 2. It was not overly packed enabling my younger kids (3 and 7) to enjoy themselves without the worry of being trampled by older, larger kids. 3. I didn't miss the Braves game as they had it on the big screen tv. My kids had a great time so we'll be back.

Do you want to hear someone say "Paula - I've been waiting my whole life to meet you," or "Paula - I couldn't have survived my death bed without you?" Do you want to test a bunch of mattresses or get peddled by American Laser Centers? Do you wish to sit through a pitch for $2,000+ cookware for an hour with the promise of door prizes? Then, maybe this might be the place for you. Fortunately, we didn't pay full price for tickets to see Paula, but if we had, I would have been extremely disappointed. I know it shouldn't feel like a show on TV, but by opening things up to a Q&A with a bunch of selfish people who only want to hear themselves speak instead of asking thoughtful questions, you're only asking for trouble. And the vendors? Yeah, ok, there were a couple of good ones. Gabriels Desserts is always a crowd-pleaser. A few of the Georgia mom-and-pops with some nice dipping= sauces were ok too. But there were SO many jewelry, pyramid scheme-esque, mattress, handbag booths that it was just such a waste of an afternoon. If you're only going to see the celebs, unless you're doing one of the up close and personal experiences, save the money, watch on TV, unless you're in the market for $2,000 cookware.

I had a great time at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show at the Cobb Galleria last year (2009). I saw Guy Fieri and the Neelys cooking shows (which were awesome!). I ran into Gina Neely in the Exhibit Hall who was so sweet and took a picture with me. So did Chef Blais and Guy Fieri (at his book signing). As soon as the tickets became available I bought them for Paula Deen, Bobby Flay and Mario Batali. Wanted to get the best seats right away. I can't wait until this year's show!!!!

I received a jump pass as a gift from a friend so I visited Mighty Jumps and I'm glad I did. I didn't know that Mighty Jumps was as close to my home as it is making it easy to visit on a rainy day. I peeped into a birthday party and was truly delighted to see them celebrate with a balloon drop. It was awesome. ..different, cute, and it seems like the parents enjoyed it as much as the kids. Oh, my daughter had a good time too. We'll be back.

My son loves Mighty Jumps. We’ve been going since it was Monkey Joe’s and we had Connor’s party there because they are very easy to work with and Connor always has a good time and leaves tired. His 4th birthday party was a hit and his friends loved it and did not want to leave. I take Connor regularly as a way to let him run around and play while I read a book or surf the net. Its big enough for him to run around but the layout allows me to see him at all times. They get our stamp of approval.

After bringing my son in to Mighty Jumps during the week to burn energy, I decided to throw my nephew Chase a birthday party there & my decision could not have worked out better. The staff was polite, professional, and accommodating. Mighty Jumps exceeded my expectations by helping set up for his themed party, ordering a cake and balloons for me, and allowing me to bring in outside food (due to my son's dietary restrictions). Chris and Yuki deserve special kudos for creating such a positive experience for my nephew, family, guests, and friends. If you've read my review on Bacchanalia, you know that I have to provide details. Pros: - PERFECT place for a young kids party. The older kids were able to run around and play on the larger jumps and slides while the little guys played in the toddler area. - Value: After shopping around a little, the price and items provided were cheaper than other party places - Staff: 10! I can be picky and they worked with me to make the party a success. - Atmosphere: Cozy but active. I could sit down, watch tv, play on my laptop, and see my kid without having to chase him around. It wasn't the madness that I have seen at other jump houses but the kids still had fun. Cons: - The jumps aren't brand new (But the kids didn't seem to mind a bit) - Hard to find for some (They're not on Google Maps. Use Mapquest)
