As a teenager, Dr. Stacie Calian worked as an assistant in several dentists’ offices, which inspired her to later work as a dental hygienist and earn two masters degrees from Columbia University. From there, she left the practice to join academia, but she couldn’t resist the siren song of the dentist’s drill; soon after, she received a doctoral degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry and amassed more than 18 years of clinical experience. Now, at her office, Dr. Calian and her team of smile stylists use a variety of high-tech instruments—from digital x-rays to Zoom! whitening lights and lasers that penetrate teeth without the heat, vibration, and pressure of the typical tiny chainsaws. Within a spa-like atmosphere, the staff performs services including Invisalign, Lumineers, and dental implants—procedures Dr. Calian is always looking to improve by furthering her training through continuing education.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Tao Yoga & Tai-Chi founder Ilchi Lee. "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere." To make this challenging, yet hopeful, philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance.
In a way, Elizabeth Pandich—the head trainer at Limelight Farm—was always meant to spend her life around horses. Pandich’s two-decade career got off to an auspicious start on her family’s small private farm in Westchester, where, as a junior rider, she qualified for equitation finals such as the Hunter Seat Medal Finals, New England Equitation Finals, and ASPCA Maclay Regionals. After graduating from college and realizing that her diploma didn’t look nearly as nice as a ribbon clipped to a horse’s mane, she picked up right where she left off, winning prestigious shows such as the Devon Horse Show and Pennsylvania National Horse Show.
Today, Pandich shares her equine insights at her safe, amenity-rich farm. During lessons, she takes full advantage of the ground’s many amenitites, including a Grand Prix field, sand and grass riding rings, open fields, and an indoor arena with a heated viewing area. As pristine as it is prestigious, the farm has produced students that have gone on to win prizes in hunter, equitation, and jumper shows.
