Melanie's Dance Stars is the realization of a lifelong dream. Melanie Brooke Campbell-Durham wanted to be a dancer from the age four. She trained in styles such as ballet, tap, jazz and modern, going on to teach her first class at the ripe age of 15. By 2005, the already accomplished artist earned her Bachelor in Arts degree in Dance Performance and Composition.
While Melanie has taught all over the country, she keeps Melanie's Dance Stars as her home base. Here, she works with boys and girls ages 2.5 and up. The studio's classes and regular performances introduce these budding dancers to the steps of ballet, tap, and jazz.
Surrounded by the peaks of the Ortega Mountains, the towering trees of Cleveland National Forest, and the waters of Lake Elsinore, The Links at Summerly Golf Club couldn't seem farther from the flat, wind-swept coast of Scotland. But that didn't stop course architect Cal Olson from molding an 18-hole layout in the image of Scottish links golf. To that end, he made the most of the area's natural mounding, shaped three miles of burns into the clay, and filled the course with devious bunkers shaped like kidneys or just ovals with poor posture. Adding to the difficulty, the 7,012-yard layout incorporates a host of water hazards, leaving players a thin margin for error on many holes.
A venue for first-rate course play, The Links at Summerly also serves as a venue for practice and improvement with lessons helmed by PGA Class A professional Scott Marson. Lessons can incorporate video swing analysis and guided on-course play to drive home new concepts and strategies.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 7,012 yards from the tips * Course rating of 74.1 from the tips * Slope rating of 142 from the tips * Three tee options
Kempo’s movement patterns may look beautiful—fluid, swooping kicks, graceful evasions, smooth takedowns—but underneath the beauty lies a tradition nearly 2,000 years old. Since 1968, the instructors at United Studios of Self Defense have armed students with these techniques, leading classes where participants of all ages and skill levels soak up fighting skill while galvanizing self-confidence.
But before they can share their tactics and Mortal Kombat cheat codes, the instructors themselves must be trained. Each instructor who cinches the black belt around their waist has graduated with honors from the Studio’s own rigorous training academy. The training doesn’t stop there; every week they meet with the founder himself, 10th-degree black belt Charles Mattera, who refines their strategies and instills them with advanced techniques.

At Intensity All Stars, experienced coaches impart knowledge on young athletes. In a training facility that's equally as professional, these trainers help Intensity athletes hone techniques. To explore a new passion without the competition, students enroll in more casual classes, like tumbling, dance, and parkour. Intensity boasts US All Star Federation credentials, a first-aid-certified staff, and its own pro shop, but many simply appreciate the way it stokes students' interests, fitness, and self-confidence.
