Having passed on their rug-cutting inclinations to local celebrities such as basketball coach Denny Crum, the sure-footed staff at Shall We Dance? continues to unleash an arsenal of graceful moves inside their two studios. Students of all skill levels step in time with the school's curriculum of Latin, nightclub, and American dance styles during private or group lessons, using their feet like metal detectors to scan the floor for long-lost grooves. Stately triple beats whirl waltzers across the floor, steamy struts abound in tango lessons, and fox-trot instructors bring students to their knees in classical hunting poses and many more dance styles. Neophytes can then show off their new steps during practice parties with whimsical themes.
Composed of seven par 3s and two par 4s each no longer than 265 yards, the nine holes of Cherry Valley Golf Course present both the beginning and seasoned golfer with low-stress opportunities for improvement. Players zip around the 1,584-yard stretch aboard 2006-model Club Car Precedent golf carts—a far cry from the options available when the course was built in 1932 and players had to rely on zeppelins for transport. Gerald Mason has served as the head professional since he bought the course in 2001, helping players overcome game hurdles through one-on-one lessons.

Before becoming one of Indiana's regional yoga champions and the third-ranked woman at the national yoga competition in New York, yogi and studio owner Ayanna Brown was out of shape and suffered from chronic asthma. One would never guess this after watching her elegantly execute Bikram Choudhury's 26 postures, but she didn't begin practicing yoga until a broken leg left her looking for a rehabilitation regimen that involved no pogo sticks. Though the extreme heat took its toll on her body and lungs during the first class, she kept at it, and has practiced six days a week ever since. Today, asthma free and leg in tact, she shares her passion for the heated yoga style with students of all experience and fitness levels in her own Southern Indiana studio.
