In 2003, the teaching staffs behind the Butler-Fearon and the O’Connor-Kennedy Schools realized something: though both academies nurtured the physical, mental, and competitive skills of scores of young Irish dancers, they could form a more robust program by combining forces. Once united, the team of Rose Fearon, Vincent O’Connor, and Kathleen O’Connor—each a certified Irish dance adjudicator—implemented a revised curriculum reaching students from both American coasts to the solid-ice skyscrapers of Ontario. Today, Butler-Fearon-O'Connor trains everyone from girls buckling their jig shoes for the first time to experienced adults, many of whom—such as 2011 world champion Emily Penner—have danced competitively at home or across the pond and landed spots on touring companies for shows such as Riverdance.
Focusing on perfecting traditional form and technique, classes are kept as small as possible, ensuring personalized attention from one of the school's 10 experienced, decorated instructors. Students also learn stamina, flexibility, and presentation, with an emphasis on avoiding motions that tend to draw judges' ire, such as clumsy arm placement and badgering the audience. Many locations also host more casual classes for adults and groups such as Girl Scout troops.
Master Tony Park began teaching tae kwon do at the age of 12, just five years after his first lessons. Since then, not much has changed. With 38 years of experience, the native South Korean still teaches his country's martial art, but he now does it at his own facility, National Taekwondo Academy, Inc. There, Park and his staff of seasoned instructors orchestrate self-defense and fitness programs for all ages: kids, teens, adults, and mummies.
Now in its 31st year, Pacific Ballet Conservatory teaches the art of rhythm and poise inside four modern studios. Its highly trained instructors—whose international credentials stem from such centers as the Joffrey Ballet and the Dutch National Ballet—mentor both children and adults with an unflagging focus on personal development. Evaluations at six-month intervals gauge every student's progress in ballet, jazz, tap, and contemporary styles. Pupils can also showcase their talents during the Spring Performance Series, which emulates professional theater productions with special effects and Muppet-filled box seats. Many dancers do indeed progress to the spotlight after their schooling, performing onstage at the San Francisco Ballet, Houston Ballet, Gelsey Kirkland Academy, and even Disneyland.
The bulk of TruHold's indoor facility pops with colorful holds peppering a looming rock wall. Arranged by levels clearly marked "0" through "5," the grips skirt along the face of a specially designed, angular climbing wall that shifts from a steep 50 degrees to a beginner-friendly 10 degrees. Built for the bouldering style—ascending diverse terrain quickly without ropes or harnesses while dodging boulders hurled by an angry cyclops—the wall juts out over a lushly padded crash mat that cushions climbers. Experienced and professional bouldering climbers offer clinics, classes, gear rental, and open-climb times at their 4,200-square-foot indoor facility, all in the pursuit of welcoming uninitiated climbers into the fold.
Golf balls blast skyward from the 60-stall, two-tiered driving range at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center, which doubles as the training ground for The Golf Guys’ regimen of lessons. Kehli Bowen, the head golf pro, develops swings with corrective advice culled from nearly a decade of coaching experience; some of his pupils have earned college scholarships and national recognition on the junior circuit without selling their souls for a mystical Chi Chi Rodriguez golf hat.
Lessons encompass everything from the technical aspects of the game to course-management strategies to golf-based nutrition programs. In addition, The Golf Guys streamlines its lessons with technological resources, including iPad-enabled video swing analysis and online swing evaluations, which allow golfers to receive feedback on their mechanics or the flame decal they added to their driver by sending a video of their swing to the pros.
