B Sailing's origins go back nearly 40 years and 1,300 miles, when Alan Bates learned to sail on his father's boat on Lake Erie. His dad welcomed anyone aboard who had an interest in sailing, turning the boat into a de-facto sailing academy that ran both regattas and chartered pleasure cruises. Having gone on to race in the Great Lakes, along the Atlantic Coast, and in the Gulf of Mexico, Mr. Bates now continues his lifelong passion through B Sailing. Both students and members have access to a fleet of J/Boats, which are known for their stability, ease of operation, and sails stitched together from Blackbeard?s 400-thread-count bed sheets. Harbored at Seabrook Shipyard, these vessels glide onto Galveston Bay.

Q&A with Dominique, Owner of Harbour Dance

Tell us about your business.

Harbour Dance school is a dance studio that focuses on formal and recreational training in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, dance tumbling, drill team, and college prep for ages 2 to 18. The studio also offers dance-fitness classes and technique classes for adults of any age. The studio is open to all skills levels and has open enrollment all year long.

What inspired you to start this business?

Dance is my life, and I love sharing it with others. I couldn't imagine a day without it, and I really do feel it can bring out the best in people. It has always been an outlet for me, a way of expressing myself, a way to unwind. I love watching my students grow with confidence and turn into beautiful dancers.

What makes your business stand out?

We have professionally designed dance studios with specialty sprung dance floors that . . . greatly alleviate stress on the joints and help in injury prevention. Our teachers are professionally trained and all have college degrees. All teachers are also cross-trained in kinesiology and anatomy, and follow a curriculum that creates beautifully technical dancers without straining their bodies.

What is your most popular offering?

Ballet: almost every little girl wants to be a ballerina someday. It also is the most basic and important form in dance training. At Harbour Dance, ballet is the structure which all [of] our other classes follow. Hip-hop: this is the latest hit in the dance world. Dancers everywhere are breaking out of their shell and letting themselves loose in hip-hop class. We offer upbeat, physically active, and funky fun in the hip-hop classes at our studio.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?

People love the size of our dance rooms. Our smaller room—primarily for preschoolers and the youngest dancers—is 700 square feet, and our main studio—where most of our classes are held—is a whopping 1,500 square feet, perfect for endless leaps across the floor.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

The best part of my job is watching a student struggle with a skill, practice tirelessly for weeks over it, then see that look on their face when they finally master it. They are so proud of themselves, and I couldn't be happier for them.

The instructors at Bay Area Sailing School—an American Sailing Association–certified professional training facility—pass their love of sailing on to fledgling skippers in classes that range from entry-level basic keelboat sailing up to advanced coastal cruising. Based at Watergate Marina on Clear Lake, the school sends training boats out to make wake in Galveston Bay and churn the Gulf's salty waters. Students can build up their skills over time, graduating to bigger ships, mastering navigation tactics, and learning how to say "which way's north?" in dolphin. Eventually, thanks to Bay Area Sailing School's partnership with Sackett Sailing Center, they'll be able to rent boats at reduced membership rates and start enjoying the good sailing life.
