In 2011, single mother Ms. James juggled a job, college coursework, and an internship, which left scant funds to spare. But she didn't want her son to miss out on the extracurricular activities offered to his peers. That's why she founded Innovative Arts, Inc., where students from all walks of life can explore everything from Spanish to French to martial arts to science to cooking.

After studying gymnastics in Russia, coaching two world-class gymnasts, and leading the Puerto Rican team at the 1999 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, Al Garcia-Sanchez brought his three decades of experience to Kelbren Elite Gymnastics, where he's head coach. Now he and other instructors introduce kids as young as 1 year old to gymnastics. Students learn to master equipment such as the balance beam, vault, and rings, and Fitnastics classes augment backflip acumen with strength training and health tips.

Maestro Arkady Burdan began his fencing career in Europe. There, he earned prestigious distinctions, including the USSR Master of Sports and Honored Coach of the Ukrainian Republic, after coaching the winners of more than 40 gold medals in international competition. After opening Nellya Fencing in 1990, Burdan has trained his students—as well as U.S. Olympians at the Beijing and Athens games—in the traditional discipline of the Russian saber. The maestro was recently named Elite Coach of the Year and inducted into the US Fencing Hall of Fame for his ability to spear all five Olympic rings with a single thrust.

Every fencer at Nellya begins their training with extensive footwork and bladework, sharpening discipline and focus while learning the rigorous technique of the Russian saber. As they gain strength and point control, they will also learn to deflect attacks and plot strategies that will help them compete in national and intergalactic arenas. In the past, students have gone on to become collegiate fencers, and five have represented both their school and country in the Olympics, including three-time medalist Sada Jacobson.

The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer's good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.

Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Centers’ numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

The stylists at Eco Beauty Salon Spa cultivate natural beauty by using natural products—those made by Aveda, to be precise. Each of the company's haircare, skincare, and cosmetic formulas are made with plant- and flower-derived ingredients, and at least 89% of those ingredients hail from organic sources. These natural products elevate every one of the salon's treatments, from the essential-oil scalp massages that begin each cut and style to the slate of facials that rebalance complexions using customized masks and essential oils. Meanwhile, a happy hour menu available from 11–2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday includes brow, lip, and face waxing packages, hair cuts and colors, and makeup touch ups.
