Prestige Dance Company’s owners, Uwem Ekpo and Annie Mercedes, believe that dance should take place in a fun-filled environment. That explains the high energy that charges through each of their Latin-dance classes, which include salsa, bachata, and mambo styles. The duo also teaches Zumba, a dance-based fitness program that coalesces Latin dance and cardio more effectively than tango partners who practice on a treadmill. Regardless of style, all dance lessons serve the studio’s mission to help students find confidence on the dance floor.

9Round gym takes its name from its signature kickboxing workout, a continuous circuit of nine workout stations perpetually overseen by personal trainers. Students jump into whichever station happens to be occurring whenever they show up to the class, the trainers always ready to start coaching. The workout takes about thirty minutes, and involves heavy bags, speed bags, medicine balls, and, of course, punching and kicking. The Margate location features shiny black leather equipment, which only loses its gleam by being repeatedly pounded up against the exposed brick walls.
With state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, the professional instructors at A-Swing Golf Academy develop lesson plans that make swing improvement fun and, most importantly, functional. Their approach to instruction aims to instill fundamentals in all skill areas, including full strokes, chips, slapshots, and putts. During lessons and swing-analysis sessions, the golf gurus employ the technological intricacies of a high-speed video camera to capture a player's unique swing motion and identify unfavorable tendencies.
Golf pros also follow students onto the course for playing lessons, in which they coach the intangibles of course management, risk assessment, and subtle intimidation tactics such as grunting during an opponent's backswing or teeing up with a rusty nail and glass eyeball.
