Easy as A-B-C, the artists behind Life in Letters craft custom photographic gifts available both in their shop and online. Over the years, they've amassed a vast collection of black-and-white photos of common objects and sights that resemble letters—such as arches, golf balls, fences, and palm trees—which they assemble into meaningful words, such as love, laugh, family, and nihilism. Once customers have chosen their word and selected each letter, they can have their piece matted and framed to suit their own decor or that of a loved one. The photographers also share their skills with aspiring shutterbugs during regular introductory photography classes.
Our goal is to biuild a community by helping people get in shape, be safe and at the same time instill the life skills with character development. Upholding important values like courtesy, patience, respect, self control and integrity.
Atomic Race Timing challenges athletes with small- to medium-size timed races over picturesque and challenging terrain. Athletes meet at Bellbrook Canoe Rental, which serves as a home base. Bellbrook Canoe Rental outfits competitors with boats, paddles, and life jackets, which stay afloat with a mixture of compressed air and children's dreams. At 7:45 a.m., athletes board the bus for a five-minute ride to the launch site. Up to 25 solo competitors can paddle to victory in kayaks, and teams launch off in canoes.
At Innerlight Yoga & Wellness, group classes such as Hot Vinyasa and Warm Flow invite individuals to stretch and position themselves through hot and warm yoga routines. The heat allows for a deeper stretch and helps to detoxify the body. Customers will also find Thai, deep-tissue, and Swedish massage, along with hot-stone therapy and ionized water available for purchase.
At Skateworld of Kettering, families strap on their gliding shoes to coast across the rink to the sounds of kid-appropriate tunes. During themed skating sessions, guests can glide to Radio Disney tracks, Top 40 hits, and disco ballads before feeding one of many arcade games with their hard-earned tokens. Tired tots can refuel by sinking their teeth into pizza or working on the blueprints for their perpetual-motion clone at the concessions stand.
Shoes clap cross the wooden floor, sequins sparkle in the stage lights, and ringlets bounce with every dancer's leap. Richens/Timm Academy of Irish Dance keeps these sights and sounds alive and well. Imparting tradition to its students while teaching them how to master the techniques of Irish dance, the school has produced 12 North American champions, 3 all-Ireland champions, and 2 Senior Men's World Champions in the past three decades. It's hardly a surprise, though, considering the school was founded by Ann Richens, a Dublin native, and is led today by John Timm, the 1993 Senior Men?s World Champion.
Classes start with beginners lessons and introductory workshops to help students get a feel for the motions and remember where their feet are located, before they launch into the full routines of more advanced classes. Once they reach senior status, they can perform at the Dublin Irish Festival and the Indy Irish Fest, as well as a variety of venues across the region.
