A contestant on the Golf Channel’s reality show “Big Break Greenbrier”, Anthony Casalino continues to chase his dream of playing among golf’s elite. The pin-hunting protégé began playing golf at the age of 9, kicking off a career that would lead him to play golf at Iona College, pursue a career as a PGA Apprentice beginning in 2005, and compete in the National Golf Association Winter Tour in 2007, where he snagged a career best second-place finish in the Southern Dunes Winter Event. Having thrived on the course despite a slightly unorthodox swing and a refusal to blackmail Ben Crenshaw for putting advice, Anthony understands that there is not just one universal way to hit a golf ball successfully. During lessons, Anthony helps pupils develop a swing that feels comfortable for them and produces the desired on-course results.
The Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom more than lives up to the splendor suggested by its name. When the new owner and management took over the downtown Greenwich ballroom, they completely redecorated it in the opulent style of the Regency period. Today, its expansive wooden floor hosts private lessons and group classes in dance styles such as salsa, foxtrot, rumba, and Argentine tango. Arthur Murray's renowned teaching system is designed to help students develop a strong foundation in two to four dances. Instructors emphasize the three most important elements of dancing—step patterns, timing, and leading or following—and make sure that their students are having fun at every twist and turn.
Each GolfTec swing evaluation places client skills under the analytical eyes of a certified pro and high-tech monitors, who conspire to pinpoint bad habits and help pupils develop sound technique. When entering a GolfTec location, each player slinks into a climate-controlled hitting bay as if it were a pair of seersucker knickers to meet with a coach and discuss goals and grievances. Students then demonstrate swinging ability before absorbing feedback. Throughout the session, GolfTec's patent golf-education technology relies on motion sensors, launch monitors, and high-definition digital video to provide precise swing data and inform a tailored lesson plan. Players depart their sessions with hard-won wisdom on how to improve ball-striking fundamentals, lower scores, and domesticate golf carts.
Wendy Traskos's career as a pole-dancing icon began with one fateful spin. Impressed by the strength of self-expression she glimpsed in accomplished pole-dancers, she tried the art for herself and was hooked immediately, so much so she has been honing her spinning skills for 16 years. Now a self-taught professional, she channels her background as a certified personal trainer and gymnast to enhance her routines. Wendy’s fitness knowledge landed her celebrity clients, including Montel Williams and Mary J. Blige, and her proficiency on the pole led Germany's version of America's Next Top Model to feature her as a dancing expert.
At NY Pole studios, Wendy passes on her spiraling prowess through her original Climb and Spin method. She believes that students should build a foundation of muscle and a repertoire of techniques as they progress to more advanced pole tricks, which require them to shed all rock-climbing gear. Her classes accommodate varying skill levels with choreographed routines, motivating participants to practice recently learned grips, climbs, and transitions. The studios also offer fitness classes, private parties, and workshops led by guest instructors such as Cleo “The Hurricane,” also known as Miss Pole Dance Australia.
