Ever since I was little I wanted to be an artist. I tried all kinds of things- music, painting, drawing, even pottery. I was never very good at any of it, but I loved it all. Then I discovered photography. I figured out how to translate my ideas into pictures and fell in love with it.

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. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with instructors during private lessons and other classmates for group lessons as instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. 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.
Texas Boot Camp Fitness's certified trainers fortify physiques with an ever-shifting compendium of exercises performed in an outdoor setting. Attendees of all fitness levels sprint and jump toward fitness goals, lifting their own body weight when performing pushups, chin-ups, and acts of levitation. Arms hoist weights, resistance bands stretch between partners, and friendly competitions reveal hidden stores of stamina and strength. Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
At Spring Creek Golf Learning Center, there's a noticeable emphasis on quality. For instance, the facility keeps its turf in pristine condition, and every year, it receives a shipment of 60,000 new range balls right after they've been laid by PGA-approved chickens. Visitors can take note of this attention to detail while practicing in Spring Creek's various areas, including the 10,000-square-foot putting green and a driving range with more than 50 grass hitting stations. The center's staff, meanwhile, relies on more than a century's worth of combined experience while teaching lessons, clinics, and manning the fully stocked pro shop, complete with club-fitting services and gear from some of the industry's top manufacturers.
