Awarded Best Martial Arts School in the Family Times' 2012 Besties Awards, Five Star Martial Arts teaches kids and parents alike the rapid-fire movements of martial arts. During youth programs, students aged 4 and older build stamina, dexterity, and intelligence through disciplined instruction at the hands of seasoned masters. Alongside typical belt rankings, badges and stars reward younger students as they master flurries of kicks and punches. Adult students find their own fitness rewards during cardio kickboxing, which blends an international potpourri of martial arts moves with calisthenic and aerobic foundations to form an explosive full-body workout that targets and tones major muscle groups across the body.

Trainers pair their fitness expertise with motivational attitudes, working one on one with students to help them on their path towards achieving personal wellness goals. Classes unfold within Five Star Martial Arts' recently expanded studio. There, new equipment and installations including a Tumbl Trak, a massive foam pit, and a collection of polyplus climbing ropes help trainers add complex gymnastics-inspired exercises to their already sizable arsenal of workouts.

As a full-service dive shop staffed by PADI-certified depth delvers, Aquatic World submerges nautical novices deep into the world of scuba. The introductory Discover Scuba class imparts diving fundamentals to pupils as they acquaint themselves with the provided gear and gradually acquire the secret language of sea turtles. After a 15-minute in-class rundown of the basics, aquatic adventurers get to live out their undersea aspirations during a one-hour session in Aquatic World’s on-site pool, using masks, fins, and a respiratory breathing system. Though the class won't churn out scuba divers certified to dive alone, it might finally put to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles.

Learning a new skill online usually feels impersonal, because you're listening, practicing, and adjusting by yourself. Webucator, on the other hand, immerses its students in a true classroom environment—even though all of them might be sitting at home with their laptops. Its course offerings focus on technologies, programming languages, and business skills, encompassing everything from Adobe InDesign tips to sales and marketing strategies.

During public virtual courses, instructors teach in realtime by mirroring their display on the student's computer. The connection goes both ways: as students participate in exercises, they can grant the instructor access to their screen display, and receive close guidance. Students wear headsets that were mailed to them upon their registration, so asking questions and pretending to be an airplane pilot are encouraged. Classes are also reliable—they cannot be canceled due to low enrollment.

Webucator's self-paced classes, written by the same instructors as the live seminars, also strive toward interactivity. Their lessons and quizzes are accessible at any time, and help students to monitor their progress throughout the training.

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.
