The Canadian Professional Golfers' Association–certified golf instructors at Billy D's Golf Center mould swings and help aspiring golfers finesse the finer points of their game at a fully equipped facility encompassing 52 outdoor hitting stalls and grassy areas. In an enclosed four-bay teaching area, golf pros Daryl Patrick, who competed in the Malaysian PGA Tour, and Luke McKenzie, winner of the 2005 Ontario Spring Open, instruct pupils on mending hooks, saving slices, and willing balls into holes with elaborate tribal spells. Clubs whack and balls fly down 300 yards of lush green fairway, and an artificial putting green strengthens golfers' short game. Fatigued golfers and battered golf balls recoup in a 1,000-square-foot clubhouse, where golf pros fit and repair clubs and cooks serve up food that visitors can enjoy with a side of tree-filled scenery.

As he trained to become a dance instructor, Devon Panko's journey took a series of unexpected happy detours, starting with his achievements in the finals and semi-finals of national dance competitions. As he competed while simultaneously training for his teaching certification, doors kept opening for him, including opportunities to choreograph TV and movie stars such as Lily Tomlin and Fred Willard. Now teamed with Orianna Panko, also an accomplished choreographer and winner of several national dance titles, Devon lends his expertise as the head instructor at Panko Dance Ballroom and DanceSport Studio.

Instructors at the studio lead four levels of classes tailored for dancers from the inexperienced to the seasoned. Within the bright and airy studio, dance experts demonstrate the steps of international styles that range from viennese waltz to samba, as well as North American styles such as west-coast swing and country. For more customized instruction, lesson packages help prepare students to dance at weddings, competitions, or to impress at a driver's-licence renewal. The Panko team also buttresses the class schedule with supplementary events that include swing workshops and regular Friday night dance parties.

Learn Photography Canada's James Lam wasn't born a photographer?it was something he fell into after beginning a career as a mechanical engineer and travelling to Australia to work as marketing director for a national charity. But once he picked up the camera and learned its ins and outs, there was no going back. He fostered his passion and travelled around the world photographing landscapes, architecture, wildlife, and people until he could photograph an apple off a man's head from 20 paces.

Today, he leads students of all levels on photographic journeys of their own throughout Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. As groups wander along photogenic streets, snapping images of architecture, urban wildlife, and people, James and his fellow instructors demystify digital SLRs by explaining aperture, white balance, and ISO. The team also explores photography further, expounding on techniques such as night photography and creating panoramic photos so that patrons can study the entire interior of a bank at once before robbing it.

At a Glance

Stormbringer Air-Gun Range and Supply lets its visitors fire air rifles and air pistols that echo the appearance, feel, and operation of real firearms. Instead of bullets, the air rifles employ carbon-dioxide-propelled BBs and pellets. The substitution in ammunition allows visitors to train and compete without a firearms license. Using the mock guns, the facility's instructors can teach essential skills, such as proper grip and sight alignment, or even set up friendly competitions such as Top Shot, during which shooters fire at steel plates dropped by an automatic target system.

Blair Oko draws on more than two decades of experience as a CPGA Class A professional as he presides over his eponymous academy—a 10,000-square-foot indoor facility in which experts help students up their game with the aid of technology. The instructors rely on video swing analysis, which helps them mentor pupils hoping to develop a swing powerful enough to launch a fallen meteor back into orbit. The facility also hosts four Full Swing virtual-golf simulators, which plunk players into more than 60 championship courses. After getting their fill of computer-generated feedback, golfers can practice their endgame on the indoor putting green or hone their swings on the indoor driving range.

Although mainly dedicated to golf, Blair Oko Golf Academy also invites hockey aficionados to polish their skills on a blade skating treadmill. After quality time with their 9 iron or skates, athletes can unwind in the facility’s lounge, watching sports on flat-screen TVs while sipping a beverage and snacking.
