Scuba enthusiast Jennifer Feller's unconditional love for underwater sightseeing and pruney fingers constantly prompts her to explore the depths of aqueous avenues far and wide. As an IDC-trained PADI instructor and volunteer search-and-rescue diver, she teaches first responders the indispensable skills needed for effective public-safety diving. At The Playground Dive Shop, Feller's very own scuba emporium, her knowledgeable staff, which includes a retired Navy submariner, unveils a collection of the latest diving gear and repairs broken or faulty equipment. They also empower visitors to take their own watery plunges during a variety of scuba-diving courses, which teach participants the basics of underwater breathing, the techniques needed to earn an open-water certification, and underwater photography tips––such as making sure you snap multiple pictures, just in case a fish blinks.

George and Dorothy Heavilin established House of Heavilin Beauty College in 1953. Since then, the school has prided itself on graduating talented professionals who continually land in esteemed positions across the country. Instead of practicing on crash-test dummies, though, students perfect their craft while providing salon services for customers. Under the expert eyes of the college's educators, budding cosmetologists and aestheticians administer facials, apply makeup, cut and style hair, and conduct various waxing services.

When he was a child, Michael Russell spent a lot of time in his father’s darkroom, watching and helping him develop photographs. As Russell grew into an adult, he still loved photography but opted to pursue a career in front of the camera as a television news reporter. Even as he interviewed celebrities, presidents, and wax statues of presidents, he found himself most engaged with shooting his own video, and with framing shots of natural landscapes and wildlife. He eventually would leave his broadcasting career to teach photography full time, and venture on expeditions to scenic vistas and art fairs. During Russell’s workshops, his picture-snapping protégés can pick his brain as they practice various photography concepts and sample professional lenses.

First-time scuba divers will learn from professional, certified trainers during Skin-n-Scuba’s Discover Scuba training session. The training course includes all necessary diving gear and is conducted in the facility’s 26’x52’ indoor saltwater pool, featuring salt, water, and two sunken Spanish Armada galleons. Individual class enrollment is capped at 15 in order to maintain a reasonable instructor-to-student ratio and leave room in the pool for the dolphins enrolled in backstroke. The two-hour classes for Groupon buyers are offered Fridays (starting at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.), Saturdays (9 a.m. and 11 a.m.), Sundays (1 p.m. and 3 p.m.) and Mondays (10 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.).
