The traveling coaches of Rise Up Basketball know that many virtues of great players are invisible—their work ethic, for example, or ability to cooperate with team members. So, when practicing with their clients, they focus on physical, mental, and social skills. Drills on shooting and passing merge with teamwork exercises and game-like scenarios that demand quick thinking, all of which occur at a local park or gym of the player's choosing. Whether they're guiding a single person, a group, or an active team, the instructors strive to build overall athleticism, no matter the student's age or initial skill level.

Founded by Selenia Logan, PinkPoleParty.org helps enrich women's lives by both raising money to fight breast cancer worldwide and helping women express their sensuality through pole-dancing workshops. While enjoying complimentary pink champagne and lemonade, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts, attendees run through two consecutive workshops: a pole dancing class, in which they learn warm-up exercises and basic pole moves, poses, and routines, and a lap-dance session covering the art of stripteases and flirtatious dances. All proceeds benefit breast cancer research through the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks.
