Built on an abandoned gravel lot in a city that was lacking cultural offerings, the Straz Center began as the dream of a community.
Today the Straz Center is the largest performing arts center in the Southeast and the only one with an on-site performing arts
conservatory. The Straz Center was incorporated in 1980 and opened in 1987.
In the early 1990s, the Straz Center (then known as Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center) established arts education as a community priority, working closely with area public, private and home school programs to enhance arts education for children throughout the seven-county Tampa Bay area. Outreach programs included curriculum connectors to Florida education standards and teacher study guides in print and online. The Straz Center’s extended in-school artistic residencies, summer programs and after school offerings helped to fill the increasing gaps in arts education left by budget cuts.
At Body Aligned we believe that Pilates is for life! It's not just an isolated hour of physical activity. The flow of movement in Pilates will carry over into your day-to-day life by improving body awareness, proper alignment, posture and mobility through all the twisting, bending, lifting and flexing you do every day. The precision of Pilates movements and breath control also will help improve your concentration, balance, coordination and overall well-being.

the VKNG difference
Think of our classes like small group personal training; because thats what they are. We focus on each of our guests and how to best advance them through their workouts.
Our trainers are the best in the field. We focus on recruiting trainers who not only walk the walk but can talk the talk. Fitness is a science, and we know science at VKNG.
We ask guests to sign up in advance (not just because spots can fill up with our small class sizes), so our trainers can develop programs with each guests individual needs in mind. Have an injury you are recovering from? We can tailor the program to help you advance during recovery.
Our mission is to inspire and nurture our students through the art of movement, dance and wellness. We aspire to give every student a unique atmosphere that will foster their artistry as well as encourage a lasting confidence and a positive perspective on their health and wellness. Our faculty is committed to providing a memorable experience that will engage all ages. Through our innovative and fresh approaches we will explore the worlds of dance, movement and wellness as well as create a space for continued inspiration and growth.
