The visibility beneath the waters of Aurora Reservoir is between 5 and 12 feet in front of your face. The murkiness is less frustrating than it is suspenseful—you don't know exactly when the twin engines of an airplane will appear, allowing you to trace the rest of the sunken craft and greet its finned inhabitants. The remote, shadowy world of the downed plane is just one of many rendered accessible to students of Rocky Mountain Diving Center, where instructors can train their protégés up from first-time divers to certified teachers through a combination of classroom, pool, and outdoor sessions.
The center's educational programs include swimming and snorkeling classes in addition to open-water-diving-certification courses. These lessons enable graduated pupils to delve into several local lakes. The curriculum also covers specialty training on topics such as deep diving, night diving, and underwater photography—a career passion of the school's owner, Mark. With equipment for sale and rental as well as a dedicated service team, the center prepares its students for safe and comfortable excursions. Its tropical retreats afford rare opportunities to explore the reefs off of Fiji or swim alongside whale sharks or shark whales—extremely intimidating belugas.

The Colorado School of Acting's directors, Elizabeth Horne and Troy Horne, combine their dual loves of stage and screen to impart acting chops to students of all ages and experience levels. Elizabeth—who has acted in more than 25 plays and 12 movies—and Troy—a sitcom and film producer who appeared on Broadway in the Tony Award–winning musical Rent—staff their team with veteran acting instructors, each of whom have more than 10 years of experience in the biz. During their classes, they teach students to focus and perform under a variety of circumstances, with workshops in subjects ranging from improv and commercial work to audition skills and voiceovers. They welcome kids for acting summer camps, where they introduce fundamentals of memorization, character development, and rehearsal. Instructors also help thespians develop with more advanced training, including filmmaking summer camps for kids, and a certificate program for all age levels that requires students to audition or present a signed permission slip from David Schwimmer.
Photo Element Studio is a photographer’s dream—the interior is a Rubik’s cube of different settings, colors, and backdrops, and the half-acre garden studio has rural, rustic charms such as a rushing creek and a tattered shed. For photographers Tait and Julie DeBaca, the studio is the setting for their family, newborn, and high-school-senior portrait sessions. Many of the photographs in the duo’s portfolio have saturated, contrasting colors, which help to accentuate the green trees and blue skies of an outdoor shoot or highlight the subjects’ faces and emotions of a black-and-white photo against a white backdrop. The photographers also let the sun's natural light impart a sense of warmth, but not like the one you get in your cheeks when someone catches you eating ice cream straight from the carton with your finger.
At Teller Street Gallery & Studios, students can channel their creativity through mediums of pottery, painting, music, and more. Thanks to this diverse gaggle of artists, the studio's curricula range from casual, single-session Painting & Vino hangouts to technical six-week art courses. The studio also hosts parties and family nights, and its gallery features a diverse array of styles by teachers and other local artists.
