Certified Tribal Belly Dance teacher Heidi Wunder embraces every creative aspect of her art, from its empowering twirls to the traditional hip scarves that she crochets herself. She welcomes women of all ages during her classes, where she tutors tummies on the low-impact, largely improvised dance style. The form's various cues allow participants to step in unison without planned choreography or flowcharts taped to their foreheads. Because of the dance's social element, Heidi views her 2,000-square-foot space as a venue for guests to make lasting bonds while they discover their potential for strength and grace.
Heidi also handmakes many ornamentations to complement her students' routines. Custom-sewn clothing and spiraling henna patterns comprise striking tribal ensembles.
United Cheer's coaches train aspiring cheerleaders aged? 3 and older, teaching skills from basic forward rolls to more advanced back handsprings and standing tumbling.

Founded in 1977, Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both at school and in standardized testing. The academic evaluation, consisting of exams performed in a simulated classroom environment, yields a comprehensive collection of data that tutors use to design a custom learning program and a personalized, in-class obstacle course.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Once visitors take a seat in one of SimJet Center's replica Boeing and Airbus cockpits, they're pilots?almost. They can control what sort of flight they take; for example, they can embark on a gate-to-gate flight between any two airports or tackle a flight with a built-in challenge. And they can also man the fully interactive and functional cockpit controls. The resulting experience is so lifelike that it serves as pilots' license practice, in addition to an adventure for hobbyists. But there are some subtle hints that it's all a simulation: An instructor oversees from the passenger seat and?perhaps the bigger giveaway?the simulators never leave the ground.
