The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
Andy Santor Golf Academy helps golfers hone their swing mechanics using real-time data analysis from high-speed cameras. Analyzing 120 frame-per-second film, a golf expert helps players of all skill levels tweak the mobility and stability of their swings. Clients receive a voiceover swing analysis by email, so they can continue to rewind and examine their technique after the lesson or just watch grass grow in slow motion.
