The talented instructors at FlamencoTalk instruct students in the basic vocabulary, steps, and execution of flamenco, a passionate style of dance that originated in the Andalusia region of Spain. Experienced instructor and performer Mariya Tarakanova encourages all levels of leg-shakers to strap on a pair of sturdy shoes with chunky heels, a well-fitted shirt, and comfortable pants and pick a session of four classes for undulating in this relaxed, fun-spirited learning environment. No partner is necessary, opening up dancers to meet their future Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, or Gilbert Gottfried amid arm sweeps and foot stomps. The classes may be attended in non-sequential order, and the $25 registration fee is waived for Groupon users.

A good golf swing has many moving parts, from gripping the club correctly and to the smooth follow-through. For more than 14 years, LPGA teaching professional Brenda Daniels has fine-tuned those parts at Quail Chase Golf Club—a 27-hole championship course hemmed into Louisville's scotch pine and dogwood trees. As the facility's head instructor, Brenda leads lessons to help dissect the swings of both youth and adult golfers. To this end, she often utilizes slow-motion video analysis, which allows her to pinpoint flaws in the swing. Brenda also helms a number of special programs, including camps for kids, clinics for adults, and ladies-only sessions of Golf 101.

The 18-hole course at Glenmary Country Club presents players of every ability level a challenging test of their capacity for long, booming drives and cup-seeking putts. If club swingers are to threaten the course par of 72, they must first surmount a battery of hazards that range from the synthetic, such as strategically placed bunkers, to the natural, such as trees and a tendency to trip on shoelaces. Golfers pursuing better on-the-course performance can work on whittling away strokes on the pitching and putting green, or practice strokes of an altogether different sort on the club's tennis courts or in the club pool.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,542 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 72.4 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 135 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
