Flying Lessons Miami's instructors groom aspiring aviators into well-trained masters of the skies. Whether the student is an amateur thrill-seeker, a future professional airline pilot, or a penguin, it all starts with a Discovery Flight alongside an experienced instructor. The instructor introduces students to the airplane's anatomy and the basics of airport operation before they take off in one of the school's Cessna aircraft for a 30-minute flight. Once aloft, the instructor turns the controls over to the student, giving them a hands-on experience of soaring through the air, but takes hold of the wheel once again for landing.
Shooting Fever doesn't limit itself to a niche. The extensive selection of firearms and accessories caters to everyone from first-time owners to experienced sportsmen. Along with handguns, rifles, and shotguns from favored manufacturers such as Colt and Smith & Wesson, the store stocks accessories such as laser sights, ammunition, and optics. Shooting Fever also hosts concealed-carry classes for students beginning the permit-application process.

The Miami branch of the Società Dante Alighieri was founded in 1997, more than a century after the society was founded in Rome. Its aim is to celebrate Italian culture and serve as a social hub for Italians. Working in tandem with its principle partner, the Consulate General of Italy in Miami, the society hosts language courses—including Italian, Portuguese, and Latin—and doles out PLIDA Italian proficiency exams and certificates. In addition, they offer cooking and wine classes that teach students how to concoct regional Italian specialties and appreciate the differences between Italian wine and tomato sauce served in wineglasses.
At a professional studio flooded with natural light, professional photographers Marilyn Scavo and Carlos Osorio teach budding shutterbugs how to advance their picture-snapping skills during private lessons and beginner workshops. From composing compelling daytime shots to clearly capturing your boss screaming into a pillow, Photo Workshops Studios' instructors use their backgrounds in wedding, boudoir, and family photography to assist students in achieving portfolio-ready images.
A true family business, Ella Bella Rozio's Institute of Fashion combines the talents of founder and 25-year fashion-industry veteran Rocio Sanchez with her daughter Gabriella Tello's fresh take on trends and her son Fernando Tello's marketing savvy. While Fernando handles business matters, the mother-daughter duo helm the school and its workshops, leading fledgling designers through courses in fashion history, window display, and wardrobe planning.
Students find inspiration for their own creations in the custom-made gowns of Rozio Couture. Though the designers focus much of their energy on bridal and red-carpet wear, they also nod to the needs of everyday fashion with creations such as the ella 1 dress, a simple black tube that attaches to swooping skirts, dramatic ruffles, or elegant flotation devices.
