  • Maitland Art Center
    The seeds of the educational coalition known as the Art & History Museums - Maitland were planted more than seven decades ago when architect J. Andr? Smith founded the Research Studio, an artists' colony that cultivated such creators as Milton Avery, Ralston Crawford, and Doris Lee. The Research Studio eventually became the Maitland Art Center, a place where arts enthusiasts can check out a gallery exhibition, take a class, or practice tilting their berets just right. Next door is the Maitland Historical Museum, where locals can learn about the families who built the city?the Waterhouses, the Galloways, the Dommeriches, and the Hills. And that's not all, either. Next door to the history museum is the Telephone Museum, and further south is the Carpentry Shop Museum, a 19th century building filled with period woodworking tools and materials. Finally, next door to the Carpentry Shop sits the Waterhouse Residence Museum, set in the original building constructed by pioneer settler William H. Waterhouse.

  • Florida Muay Thai LLC
    The Florida Muay Thai LLC owners and trainers, Paul Marfort and Robert Mosier, have studied the ancient fighting style from coaches around the world, learning and competing in tournaments as far away as Italy, Uruguay, and South Africa. But at home in their studio, they're less concerned with shaping new competitive fighters as they are with making muay thai accessible to students of all ages, abilities, and walks of life. Classes—available for both kids and adults—focus on correct stance, pad work, bag work, and boxing drills, and also aim to foster a sense of camaraderie among students through teamwork. What's more, a special women's-only self-defense class is also taught at the studio. The course doubles as a high-intensity cardio workout as students learn potentially life-saving skills and gain the strength and confidence to handle all sorts of situations.

  • Hau Hele Wai Paddleboarding
    The waxed board slices through the shaded creek's calm surface. A paddle dips into the water, propelling the board forward with a gentle swish. This peaceful scene is par for the course on Hau Hele Wai Paddleboarding's wilderness tours. The company takes its name from a Hawaiian phrase that translates to "walk on water"—an apt description, considering the guides' specialty in standup-paddleboarding. These instructors lead groups on aquatic tours of calm ocean shorelines as well as Central Florida's lakes and rivers. Though they lead excursions for customers of all skill levels, they specialize in working with first-time paddlers. Hau Hele Wai also sells and rents a range of brightly colored SUP boards, some of which are outfitted with windows that allow riders to see the marshmallow crops rising from the lake's bottom.

  • Salsa Heat
    When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements. Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.
