Fully licensed by the Florida Department of Education, Orlando Bartending School instructs wannabe watering-hole workers in the thirst-slaking art of sips and swigs via its ServSafe Alcohol Program, which prepares students for the school’s online certification process. During each class on the flexible schedule, a professional gulp guru doles out hands-on guidance behind a fully functioning bar—everything is real except the simulated alcohol and the actor playing the frazzled concert promoter. The liquor lessons cover more than 100 tipsy-making tonics on a glass-by-glass basis, starting with the oft-used highball before moving on to martini glasses and finally the oft-neglected princess slipper. Students will also master other aspects of effective bartending, such as how to spin the bottle in the air before pouring and how to sift all the gold out of a bottle of Goldschläger.

At Vivo Fencing Club, a trio of decorated Hungarian coaches share their wisdom and expertise with beginner-through-elite-level fencers. Head coach Arpad "Arpi" Horvath has been involved in the sport since 1989, later going on to become a two-time NCAA champion during his time at St. John's University in New York. Today, Arpi and his fellow coaches rely on the Hungarian fencing approach—which focuses on the whole fencer—to teach students of all ages and abilities. They offer classes for students as young as six, allowing youngsters a chance to gain discipline and develop useful skills while their friends are still struggling with the mountains of paperwork that come with running a lemonade stand.
