A love for gulf pulses through the veins of the Mims family, owners of Sunset Golf Club. In the age when the jeep was invented, Mount Rushmore received its finishing touches, and the first paper airplane flew into outer space, C.B. Mims's professional golf career was blazing a trail through such PGA tournaments as the 1941 U.S. Open. While her brother slammed tee shots with the fellas, Bettye Mims Danoff, a touring professional, set out to create a brand-new league for the opposite sex, and in 1950, became 1 of the 11 founding members of the LPGA. Their passion for golf and C.B.'s passion for architecting playing grounds led to the birth of Sunset Golf Club.
Greens management and club selection eventually infused in the Mims DNA, filtering through two subsequent generations that continue to own and operate the nine-hole course to this day. Fifty years of course management saturated with passed down know-how gifts the clan with comprehensive golfing knowledge used to maintain 3,350 yards of bunkers, water hazards, and bermuda-grass greens.
The trainers at Robert Brown Sports Performance don't just blindly assign clients exercises to perform. Instead, they use tests to determine your strength and conditioning levels at the outset of your training. This allows them both to tailor their workouts to your needs and to motivate you to make drastic improvements. In addition to reaching higher performance levels, training can also help athletes limit the likelihood of injuries on the court or field.
Aqua Angels' parent-child swimming classes teach four-month to four-year-old land-limbed kids to cut through the water at the Kirby Creek Indoor Pool. During six 30-minute sessions, mother and Red Cross instructor Alex will lead small groups of parents and children according to her swim syllabus. Aqua Angels' lessons reacquaint children with their previously watery existence in an effort to foster confidence, increase physical strength, and make it possible to easily navigate sewer systems. Doggy-paddling parents need not fear—pools are shallow and easy to navigate.

Authentic Belly Dancing Entertainment & Academy's staff of professional dancers pop up around Dallas, shimmering across the stages of restaurants, dazzling guests at private parties, and stealing the stony hearts of competition judges. During their weekend performances and special events, solitary dancers, partners, trios, and troupes perform traditional and Egyptian belly dance movements. They spice up routines with swords, candles, and fire while astounding audiences by manipulating their stomach muscles to pour shots or stop errant cannon balls.
Back at their headquarters on the hardwood studio floors of Dana's Dance Academy, the professional swirlers impart their art to aspiring dancers in beginner and advanced belly-dancing classes throughout the week. A social and enjoyable form of aerobic exercise—unlike sleep dancing, which is essentially solitary—the classes also aim to boost students' confidence, grace, and poise.
Academy students can take their skills to the public stage by performing at Harem Nites at Stratnos Greek Tavern, where, on the first Thursday of every month, professionals and first-timers alike dance together in front of a live audience of spectators, friends, and family.
Players attempt to control shots down narrow, zigzagging fairways and carefully sidestep water hazards on 9 of 18 holes as they traverse the challenging layout of Twin Wells Golf Club. The 18-hole course guides play across several branches of a winding river and alongside an elongated lake on the par-5 13th hole, which hugs the edge of the fairway for most of the hole's length. From the time golfers tee off on the 1st hole until they hole out on the 18th, the Dallas skyline stands visible in the distance, stealing the spotlight from amphibious golf carts practicing belly flops.
