The experienced instructors at Robin Welch Dance Arts and Core Training impart dancing acumen in exploratory classes for teens, adults, and children ages 3–6. In creative movement sessions, up to 20 children ages 3–4 learn listening and motor skills through group activities. Mothers can revel in quality family time in Mommy and Me classes (ages 3–5), which further develop children's coordination. Children enrolled in creative song and dance (ages 3–4) and Tap, Sing 'n' Dance (ages 5–6) are taught singing as well as basic movements in tap and jazz. In beginning ballet classes for teens and adults, budding dancers stretch and strengthen muscles to classical tunes. Students are advised to check the schedule for class times and meeting locations.
At Micki's Dance Studio, instructors are passionate about instilling a love of dance in young students. They teach children ballet fundamentals, including pre-pointe classes. For a well-rounded dance education, they also offer hip-hop lessons.
The history of the punch is only slightly longer than that of tae kwon do, a fighting art whose origin lies some 4,000 years into Korea?s past. Throughout millennia, tae kwon do evolved through the stewardship of many masters, whose personal touch created many branches of the martial art. Grand Master Won-kuk Lee developed the chung do kwan school, and from this bough of the tae kwon do tree sprouts the style taught at Tiger Rock Academy.
The instructors splice the art?s ancient tenets with modern sports science to develop programs that implant athleticism, discipline, and self-confidence in students of all ages. Grappling and han mu do classes introduce the softer techniques of joint locks, takedowns, throws, and singing lullabies until an opponent falls sleep. Students condition their bodies for combat through exercise classes such as Kisado interval fitness training and YogaFit courses, in which students must yogafit into luggage of various shapes and sizes.
A gauntlet of hazards and omnipresent water reveals a pernicious design sure to challenge any golfer who traverses the picturesque fairways of the Knolls Golf Course. Players enjoy favorable lies when they stay within the verdant framework of rolling bluegrass fairways, yet those who venture astray may find themselves deep inside one of the 46 bunkers or secret caddy caves carved into the course. Four lakes and a river further complicate matters on 11 of 18 holes, culminating in the challenge on holes seven and nine, where a pond intersects the two doglegged fairways at their bends. The back nine presents a more arboreal affair, as players must steer their shots around tree-lined fairways and hope a fellow golfer isn't practicing golf-cart aerials on one of the frequent hills.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole course * Total length of 6,149 yards from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole
A long, roofed bike powered by a group of revelers rolls leisurely down the streets of Omaha, leaving the echoes of laughter and upbeat music in its wake. Under the helm of an affable guide, this heavy-duty bicycle—Omaha Patio Ride’s preferred mode of transportation—makes the rounds about town, safely ferrying riders between a carefully chosen assortment of bars and restaurants. An onboard solar-powered music system equipped with a mixer and MP3 plug-in contributes a sense of festiveness to the excursions, backing outings with a soundtrack without the hassle of hiring The Three Tenors to run alongside the bike. Omaha Patio Ride staffers pilot bikes along themed routes that include a Sombrero tour bolstered by stops for margaritas and Tex-Mex treats and a Sushi tour replete with breaks at renowned Japanese joints.
It's an unmistakable sound?and one that sends terror right down your spine. Nearby, someone has just fired up a chainsaw. Could it be that they're just cutting up some firewood, or a really big birthday cake? That's unlikely, given that you're inside The Shadow's Edge, a notoriously haunted house that's struck fear into the community each fall for well over a decade. Different scares wait around every corner: a deranged clown, an axe-wielding psychopath, or any number of other terrors designed to push your mental limits.
