Huronia Arts Academy summons sheet music off the page and into the hands, mouths, and hearts of eager acolytes. Versed in classical, jazz, pop, and myriad other musical genres, skilled educators offer students of all ages and skill levels guidance in the nuances of notes and secret world of clefs. Within the confines of a cozy, soundproof chamber, you'll be guided towards a mastery of melodies on your choice of violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, flute, sax, piano, voice, drums, or accordion. If you don’t have the instrument you’re interested in, Huronia Arts Academy can help arrange a rental (for an additional fee). Unlike one-size-fits-all clown noses or ice cream assembly lines, students can personalize their pursuits; guitar instructors, for instance, chat with fledgling strummers about the style and type of guitar lessons they're seeking out, and then place them with a teacher that meets their needs.

The Aesthetics College of Canada builds a foundation for budding beauticians' future careers by imbuing students with theoretical knowledge and hands-on training in four-day classes. A makeup-application course delves into the history of cosmetics before exploring facial-feature enhancement, skin-tone product choices, and how to tint eyebrows without using shoe polish (up to $999). Similarly, the introductory laser-hair-removal session recalls electromagnetic spectrum and IPL days of yore in order to discuss hair biology and anatomy, skin types, and advanced bristle-banishing techniques (up to $999). For a more hands-on approach to banishing wily follicles, an introductory waxing seminar instructively enlightens with in-depth suggestions and tips for using tools to reshape eyebrows and other forested areas ($849). The college's spa-like atmosphere, up-to-date machines, and life-like laugh track allow apprentices the chance to hone real-world aesthetic skills.

Bulldog Interactive Fitness began as a facility exclusively for kids, combining fitness with summer camps, birthday parties, and other fun activities. From there, the trainers expanded to include the whole family. Kids play dodge ball, practice hip-hop cheer, or compete in bouts of indoor floor hockey, while adults kickbox or stretch into yoga poses. Should parents' workouts last longer than their offsprings', the kids can head to the supervised games area for electronic or tabletop amusements.
