After wrapping up a five-year career for the University of Oregon men's golf team, Justin St. Clair knew he was destined to dedicate himself to golf. A bona fide ace by nearly every standard—he won the 2009 Pacific Northwest Pro-Am and was named an All-Pac 10 Honorable Mention in 2005—Justin couldn't quite ascend to golf's highest ranks, opting instead to channel his passion for the game by opening his own golf school.

Today, Justin presides over the practice facilities at Emerald Valley Golf and Resort, correcting swings with advice relayed in simple terms. Justin can help golfers sharpen swing mechanics at the driving range, where he enlists high-speed video to dissect swings and locate heckling poltergeists, he can improve course management with a playing lesson, or he can determine his clients' ideal clubs with club- and driver-fitting services.

Owner Lindsey Cooper founded Identity Dance Company in 2003 as a hip-hop studio that hoped to involve the community and provide a creative outlet with movement-based classes. Since then, the studio has expanded its scope and has begun to teach styles ranging from ballet to breakdance for all age groups. Lindsey's current staff—including several professional performers and three of Mikhail Baryshnikov's closest imaginary friends—oversees instructional training for performance groups as well as recreational sessions. The studio includes two separate practice spaces, which host group classes and private lessons throughout the week.
