Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.

Whispering Winds Training Center’s resident trainer and instructor Debbie Lavallee disseminates her equine expertise and lifelong passion to students through riding lessons. Debbie trained for nearly five years in Germany, where she studied the riding style of dressage, a sport in which the rider guides the horse in performing smooth athletic feats and must refrain from rewarding the animal with cheddarwurst. Though the center specializes in dressage, it can also accommodate western-style riding, since its primary focus is fostering communication between horse and rider, regardless of style.

It's a sad truth that few children realize their dreams of owning a pony. Hacienda 3 M Horse Riding Club makes up for lost wishes by allowing guests to bond with their sociable horses on a sprawling farm. A club membership covers up to six 90-minute visits to the stables per month, where riders can brush and interact with the equines before leading them outdoors to a pen, arena, or open pasture. The staff stands at the ready to provide guidance on grooming and tack techniques, such as saddling your steed without having to drop onto it from the ceiling. They also host small group lessons, where they impart horseback-riding fundamentals to groups of up to six students. The club's covered porch provides a serene space for parents and friends to watch their loved ones trot by. During birthday parties, though, they might want to join in the fun and compete in games of horseshoes or pin the tail on the donkey. Most parties include food and beverages for the guests, as well as time in the saddle and visits to a small goat petting area.
