Q&A with Cristina Bermudez, Owner & Main Instructor
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
Students have let me know that I've helped them gain a greater understanding of flamenco rhythm and that they've been able to advance at a much quicker rate.
Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?
I take videos of all my lessons and choreography and provide my students with a private file so they can download the videos and practice at home.
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
I stay away from having them imitate steps and would rather have them express their individual story through dance.
Is there anything else you want to add?
My classes are always fun and students feel like they can escape the mundane routines of their daily lives. At the same time, they learn to express who they truly are through flamenco, gain an extended family, and
learn that we're on this earth to help one other and make life better. My classes aren't just dance classes, they're life lessons.
Sensei Matt White, owner and chief instructor at Crabapple Martial Arts Academy, trains adults and kids in the martial arts of karate and jujitsu. To enhance these lessons, he draws on modern techniques to build students' fitness and self-confidence. He also characterizes the moves in practical self defense terms, so students can successfully distinguish between art and application.
From adults looking for a new hobby to kindergardeners who dream of becoming ballerinas, students of all ages can find the dance lesson thats right for them at Studio 23. Instructors lead classes in a variety of styles, including ballet, hip-hop, and tap, as well as fusion classes that cover multiple dance disciplines.
At Total Boxing, students study under experienced athletes and instructors, learning the swift leg strikes, powerful blocks, and delicate balancing skills of muay thai. Adults and children alike hone their agility, strength, and speed during invigorating lessons, safely sparring with other fighters, or practicing fist and footwork on the gym's ample collection of specially designed training bags. In addition to perfecting a blinding flurry of high-kicking feet, visitors to Total Boxing turn abs and core muscles into rippling sinew, and learn effective self-defense strategies. The part-gym, part-dojo operates with its own in-house graduated belt system to mark students' progress and development, shunning the meaningless belt-doling and cupcake-gifting of corporate academies. Other classes include the core building of Pilates, the chokes and locks that make up Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and the functional workouts in boot-camp classes.
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. 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.
A lush labyrinth pressed against the banks of the Chattahoochee River, River Pines Golf Club's 18-hole, par 70 Championship Course spans 6,602 yards of bucolic, tee-to-green terrain. Fortify club-flailing skills before taking to the fairways with a stint at the club's driving range, which deftly emulates course challenges with grass hitting areas, contoured target greens, a practice sand bunker, and a loitering gang of feral flagsticks. A nimble golf cart accompanies golfers throughout the round, helping track down flush power-draws that bisect the course's immaculate, bermuda fairways or precise approaches that halt pin-high on the slick surfaces of bent-grass greens. A 32-ounce fountain drink, side of chips, potato salad, or coleslaw, and sandwiches loaded with turkey, ham, or chicken salad can provide gracious postround sustenance or help bribe the ravenous beaks of belligerent waterfowl.
