A Piedi Dance Company's team of instructors teach dancers of all skill levels the know-how of executing fancy footwork. Syllabuses based on internationally renowned ballroom standards send bodies shimmying through lessons in a variety of styles including Latin, swing, country western, and lip-syncing into a hairbrush. In group classes, aficionados demonstrate footwork at a glacial pace and repeat the basic steps several times. The group setting prepares dancers for real-world shindigs, so they can navigate other boogying bodies in close proximity and know how to relieve cramps in their jazz hands. Private lessons can be tailored towards the individual student's learning style, so instructors can hone footwork and give an in-depth look at each step.
Many golfers will cruise the course at Emerald Falls Golf Club in a cart, but they could almost traverse the layout in a canoe. After the first hole—a player-friendly 548-yard par-five—golfers encounter a combination of ponds, streams, and sandstone waterfalls on every subsequent hole. Though each hole reflects a keen and calculated effort in course design, the fifth hole ranks among the more memorable. The 423-yard par-four starts in a tree-lined chute that will encourage most golfers to play a conservative drive down the left side of the fairway—but it's the second shot that, like jack Nicklaus's mood at the time of their birth, will determine golfers' fate. The hole doglegs sharply to the right as it approaches the green, which is perched on a peninsula and surrounded by water on all three sides. To prepare for the other masterfully designed holes that comprise the 7,148-yard, par 72 course, golfers can take a hole-by-hole tour or get the scouting report from their network of earthworm informants.
