Since 1984, the crew of trained instructors at Reddemeade Equestrian Center have taken time out of their own competitive schedules to teach students horseback riding. Each instructor boasts certification from the Reddemeade Instructor Training School, which allows them to conduct horseback lessons in the English style of riding in accordance with the standards of the British Horse Society. Students receive their instruction atop trained and patient school horses inside a large indoor ring or one of several outdoor rings that grace the center’s 44 acres of rolling Maryland farmland.
Now & Then Dance Studios’ dance instructors let students pick from 21 styles of dancing, including waltz, salsa, and merengue. They make sure to integrate private classes, group classes, and supervised dance parties in their lesson programs, which have produced successful dancers for 35 years. They dance atop dance floors to reduce impact on joints and pump music through digital sound systems.
Movement is medicine for Sunyatta Amen, proprietor and head instructor at MamaSita Movement & Wellness Studio. She expresses this philosophy through an eclectic menu of group classes such as Urban Fusion Belly Dance, Zumba, and Brazilian Samba Workout. During classes, students gain confidence as they shimmy hips and undulate bellies through each 60- to 90-minute workout.
Argyle Country Club accommodates a variety of upscale physical activities amid beautiful outdoor landscapes centered around a clubhouse of 25,000 square feet. The one-day membership includes one round at the club’s private golf course, where linksmen enjoy a serene 18 holes of rolling hills and picturesque woods after polishing the rust off of swings with a turn at the driving range and a pint of tendon-tarnish remover. For racket wielders, the club sports five well-maintained Har-Tru tennis courts for games of long-lasting volleys and nimble returns. After a day on the course or the courts, take a dip in the 25-meter swimming pool with a diving area, or watch the kiddies splish-splash around in the wading pool. Temporary members can utilize the showers and changing rooms to freshen up before using the included lunch voucher ($15 value) at the club’s restaurant, refueling ravenous stomachs after a full day of tennis, swimming, and using the 14th hole's putting green as a stage for a medley of songs from The Sound of Music.
