Imagine Music Academy has combined teaching vocals with an “On-Stage Experience”. The students will be instructed in a stage environment with stage lights, a sound system, and their own microphone. We start each lesson covering the techniques needed to sing, starting from the basics and continuing with each lesson.
Wade Conway, EZfitgolf’s resident professor of pars, is a former college golf coach who spent years scything the mean fairways of Tennessee to improve his clients’ swings. Engaging drills replace the monotone mechanical instruction and mandatory Arnold Palmer tattoos of many golf institutions, and keep sessions fun and stress-free. In two 50-minute lessons, ironmongers and woodsmen undergo arc recalibrations while Wade dispenses advice on utilizing natural motion to produce a reliable stroke. The veteran fairway warrior keeps lessons accessible and employs approachable comparisons to the movements used in other sports, such as baseball or competitive seagull shooing.
The coaches at Universal Gymnastics Dance and Cheer have encouraged movement in all its forms for the past 20 years. Their classes cover the entire spectrum of grace-centered recreation, from coed children's tumbling to competitive gymnastics to classical and modern dance. Beyond the "rah-rahs" they recite in cheerleading classes and "do-re-mis" they bellow in musical-theater sessions, students also develop better sportsmanship skills and work ethics with encouragement from instructors and classmates. Universal's afterschool program transitions kids seamlessly from academic to recreational pursuits when a staffer member picks them up at school and shuttles them to the gym for a snack, an hour of structured gymnastics or dance, and free play.
Classically trained dancer, fitness enthusiast, and Cancer survivor barely scratch the surface when describing Serenite' Fitness owner Karen Boynton. For Karen, fitness and dance have been a lifelong pursuit, and she blends the two at Serenite' Fitness, where she and a team of certified instructors guide students through revolutionary BarreAmped classes. Using a ballet barre, students balance as they perform small, isolated muscle movements while holding challenging postures. They might also take to the ground to perform Pilates-inspired movements or stretches, all working to boost metabolism, burn fat, and increase flexibility.
Jason P. Langley, a class A PGA member, tailors his lessons to the needs and interests of his students and fosters a relaxed environment in which pupils can push themselves to become better golfers. Langley has worked with more than 500junior golfers and provided more than 1,500 adults with course and range instruction to help them perfect specific elements of their games, such as grip and posture. In addition to honing technique during the lesson, Langley advises students on how to structure their independent practice sessions and reconfigure their workout programs to be more effective than a layman's thumb lifts.
Human flight. It's a term that conjures images of a Greek myth, but at Flying Camp, myth is a reality?and gets a happier ending. For it's here that people of all ages get to soar through the air in paragliders above the Sequatchie Valley. While USHPA-certified pilots steer all of Flying Camp's tandem flights, guests can also enroll in training programs to become pilots themselves. These classes teach all the fundamental skills of paragliding, such as launching, controlling the canopy, identifying which clouds are solid, and, of course, safely touching back down on Earth.
