The talented instructors of Nach K Dekh call on years of dance-floor experience to impart the rhythmic gestures, fast footwork, and pulsating energy of Bollywood dance in classes for children, teens, and adults. Weekly classes begin with basic steps, then build on the skills learned in past sessions to help students eventually perform an entire Bollywood number, incorporating lively music and props to entertain the public at a theater or nearby Taj Mahal. Intimate sessions of no more than 12 students allow one-on-one coaching from instructors, helping dancers develop their skills quickly and correctly. For a more sweat-focused session, Nach K Dekh's BollyBurn class challenges participants to high-impact cardio workouts and muscle conditioning set to Bollywood music.

After digging up divots as a player on the California Golf Tour and Golden State Tour, golf pro Leigh Ochinero decided to share his passion for the sport by mentoring aspiring golfers. He coached players on everything from improving their short game to developing sound course strategy, and even spent time presiding over golf-instruction company Golf on the Move. Now, he leads GolfSmarts, drawing upon nearly 24 years of teaching experience as he combines traditional hands-on instruction and the modern technology of video analysis. He also invites pupils to join him for playing lessons that test whether or not newly learned skills can stand up to the pressure of a real course's hazards, design quirks, and ball-eating golf carts.

A bicycle is like any metallic organism whose parts come loose and whose chains decay under the stress of the outside world. Calmar Bicycles is staffed by friendly and highly knowledgeable cycle pros who are certified when it comes to massaging a peddler to a state of road-ready confidence. A standard tune-up entails a complete inspection and adjustment of a bike’s derailleurs, a brake adjustment for quicker and easier stopping, and a scrutinous look at all critical fasteners. Then a bike’s bearing assemblies go under the knife to crispen crucial connections before wheels are removed for a true truing, cables are lubricated to achieve minimal resistance, and a light cleaning makes the curious creature blue-ribbon ready.
