Backed by more than 33 years of competitive rowing experience, Cindy Cole's training paces instill basic sculling techniques in beginners of all ages. Launching from Bladensburg Waterfront Park, rowboats slice through the serene waters of the Anacostia River like a straw in room-temperature butter. Sheltered banks deflect wind from gathering momentum, giving oarsfolk free rein of the typically uncrowded channel. After the lesson, rowers can picnic in the park, hike along the adjoining Tributary Trail System, or hunt for their vehicle in the free parking spaces. Class sizes are small for maximal instructor attention and minimal bumper-boat battle reenactments, and schedules sometimes flex based on demand and the needs of students.

Keisha Gervais, the artistic director of Genesis Dance Unlimited, doesn't just teach the rote steps of familiar dances. She also actively creates new blends of styles. Her Caribbean heritage inspires her to add Latin, West Indian, and African tinges to the dances she teaches the school's youth company, the members of which show off their skills at various competitions, photo shoots, workshops, and other events. You don't have to be a company member to participate, however. The school also teaches kids ages 7 to 18 dance styles including jazz, modern, and ballet during drop-in classes.
