Q&A with

Adult Student and Teacher In Youth Program

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

In additional to our regular one hour classes for kids and adults, we periodically hold seminars with multiple classes, featuring visiting instructors for adult seminars and special games and origami for the kids' seminars. Our kids are often thrilled when one of our regular one hour classes ends with an Aikido inspired versions of tag, dodge ball, and more.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

The only pressure you should put on yourself to learn and progress is to attend practice regularly, pay attention, and have fun. The instructors and teaching methods will take care of the rest. Aikido is a true martial art where you can continue to learn, grow, and progress for as long as you practice. Beginners practice safely along with experienced students and can join at any time. There are no competitions in Aikido, as students learn to practice cooperatively in a common pursuit of self-development.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We are very fortunate to receive instruction from one of the most senior ranking Aikido instructors in the United States, David Halprin, 7th degree black belt. David Halprin's primary teacher, Mitsunari Kanai, was part of the last group of live-in students under the founder of Aikido, Ueshiba Morihei (or "O-Sensei" to Aikido practitioners, meaning "Great Teacher"). Since Aikido is best learned through dedicated practice and guided instruction, we consider our direct lineage to the founder of Aikido to be a strong asset in maintaining high standards and authentic techniques, true to the founders teachings.

One of the first things you notice about Let's Sing! Dance! Act!'s students is how widely they are smiling and its because the artistic instructors have made it a point to find what makes each student tick and help them explore it. Those smiles are also a function of the studio's philosophy of making students happy—it's actually prioritized. Classes in all areas of the performing arts—engage kids of all ages starting at 3 years old. From jazz and ballet to lyrical dance and hip hop classes, kids cultivate their innate talent. They also learn from instructors during acting classes: a teacher leads a performance for the Young Actors Studio that borrows from classics such as The Nutcracker.

During daily lessons, the pros enlist video analysis and other teaching aids to help pupils tackle new skills or correct recent on-course weaknesses.

With over 15 million students trained since their founding in 1968, Villari's Martial Arts Centers continue to train pugnacious pugilists young and old using techniques crafted by Grandmaster Fred Villari. Developed as a fusion of classic Eastern fighting styles, Villari's exclusive Shaolin Kempo Karate combines the graceful energy of Shaolin, the quick, explosive blows of kempo and karate, and the grappling of Chin Na to provide combatants with a varied, effective self-defense system. Children gain strength and discipline in youth classes, while adult classes leave grown-ups ready to handle anything from dojo defense to tense lunchroom stand-offs over the day's last apple bran muffin.

Sandy Burr Country Club is a golf course in good company. It's among the nation's ever-dwindling stock of courses designed by Donald Ross, master architect of such notable courses as Pinehurst No. 2 and Inverness Club. The legendary designer unveiled the 18-holer in 1922, at the outset of the decade that would soon become known as the "Golden Era" of golf course design?due to the proliferation of course construction, not because stockbrokers refused to play with anything but golden clubs. Adding to the historical pedigree, professionals Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen played the course in the 20s and 30s, even participating in the 1935 Massachusetts Open. Golfers today walk in their large footprints as they take on the 6,550-yard course and its three water hazards, before retiring to the English Tudor-style clubhouse?a charming piece of history in its own right.
