The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary dancer 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. 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.
Reiki master Gigi Benanti discovered her gift for hands-on healing at an early age. She has since turned that discovery into a lifelong vocation, helping others achieve wellness through the ancient Japanese treatment of Reiki. At her facility, Gigi incorporates other holistic remedies, such as essential oils and sound healing, into her routine. She also offers Reiki workshops, and encourages many clients to include yoga, or meditation, into their own programs to achieve optimal results.
Dr. Cheung amps up happy faces' dazzle factor with a safe, effective take-home teeth-whitening kit. After a short oral exam and Rorschach test to ensure teeth are ready for the whitening process, Dr. Cheung takes an impression of upper and lower chompers, creating a bleaching tray that perfectly fits your mouth or mouth's stunt double. Patients are sent home with the Venus White Pro kit, which includes custom-fitted bleaching trays and a two-week supply of whitening gel. With daily usage, the whitening gel gently scrubs stains from enamel, whitening ivories up to five shades brighter and three times more likely to harbor a fugitive polar bear.
Oak Hills Golf Course opened for play in 1969 under the direction of architect Alfred H. Tull, who also helped design such renowned courses as Brandywine, Congressional, and Westchester Country Clubs. The 18-hole layout bears many features that became design traits of Mr. Tull's throughout his illustrious seven-decade career. The course is characterized by dense, tree-lined fairways with curved features, rolling terrain with elevation changes, and large green designs that showcase his inability to draw a perfect circle. Golfers must wield their putters confidently to slay the aggressive greens on holes such as No. 5, a par 3 with a 195-yard tee shot with forced carry over water, and No. 11, with its sharp dogleg fairway and right-to-left sloping green protected by numerous bunkers.
Though a public course, Oak Hillls offers many of the amenities found at a private club. Among these include eight tennis courts and an onsite restaurant, ideal for posting "lost golf ball" signs and celebrating after a day on the fairways.
Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,317 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.3 from the back tees * Slope of 133 from the back tees * Three sets of tees * Scorecard
The team at Wilton Dental Associates believes that there’s no reason a person can’t smile with their natural teeth for their entire lifetime. Dr. Van Strait and his associates back up this optimistic viewpoint with an agreement that, if the patient follows a preventative program—offered alongside modern restorative and cosmetic techniques—the practice will back all of their services with a written guarantee.
Wilton Dental Associates' two offices both resemble comfortable family homes from the outside. Inside, they're full of leather furniture in cheery hues and awash in natural light. Dental technicians have plenty of other tricks up their sleeves to make patients comfortable: the innovative DentalVibe injection-comfort system gently stimulates the nerves at the injection site to close the pain gate so that anesthesia glides in with as little notice as a middle child’s birthday.
