From their nest at Albuquerque International Airport, Del Sol Aviation's FAA-certified flight instructors help pupils earn the papers to pilot an aircraft on their own. Careers in aviation typically start with a Discovery Flight, an introduction to the pastime that involves the student in every aspect of a typical flight—from preflight briefing to calming the flight-deck cockatoo. If students should choose to pursue a Private Pilot Certificate, they have access to a fleet of Certified Light aircraft by manufacturers such as Piper, Cessna, and Grumman American, as well as the invaluable advice and guidance of their trusted instructors. The Discovery flight time experience can be officially logged to count toward your training to achieve a Private Pilot Certificate.
Teaching hips to swivel to new circumferences, trained dance instructors impart their masterful moves unto students in the respected tradition Arthur Murray has upheld since 1912. On the Albuquerque studio's more than 3,100-square-foot floor—a dance destination since 1952—students can tackle ballroom, social, or Latin dance, bringing a partner to their private lessons or flying solo and dancing with the instructor. Protégés may find their new moves applicable in a number of settings, such as when prepping for a wedding dance or when blending into an airport crowd that breaks out in a cha-cha. Regularly scheduled dance parties let students practice what they learned in lessons, slicing and dicing rugs with new fleet-footed friends.
With 40 years of experience, Valerie Santagto’s camera lens has focused on everything from Kevin Costner’s famous baby blues to the starkly beautiful mesas of New Mexico during a decades-long career that has involved clicking her shutter for the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and the New Mexico Tourism Department.
Her love of Hopi culture drew Santagto to the southwest after she spent years capturing images for high-profile clients in New York and Europe, where photographers are legally required to wear berets.
She has also taught at the Sante Fe Photographic Workshops.
Now, Santagto composes headshots, documents weddings, and shares her philosophy that photography is a love affair with life through workshops that introduce pupils to the art of taking stunning images.
Tina Tapia, the owner of Adorabella Beauty Academy and of her own salon, knows that hands-on experience is key for students perfecting the arts of cosmetology, barbering, and nail technology. Accordingly, the pupils at Adorabella transform manes and nails under the close supervision and guidance of a licensed instructor. They wield Matrix hair care products as they color tresses, relax curls, or perm limp locks. Those in the nail-technology program pamper fingertips with nail art, CND manicures, and fiberglass wraps. The academy teaches classes in both English and Spanish, enabling talented students who speak either language to pursue their dreams
of speaking either language in the dreams where they are doing Selena's hair.
When NASCAR drivers really want to have some fun—and often get back to their racing roots—they get dirty. The adrenaline junkies power up racing machines and race around dirt tracks at speeds of more than 100 mph, sliding around the dirt corners and getting dirtier than a politician in a food fight.
Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience lets speed-fiends hop in the same type of Dirt Late Model or Sprint Cars the professionals drive and take off around dirt tracks across the country. They can ride in the passenger seat while an experienced driver careens around corners or take over the wheel after a 45-minute class. No racing experience is required, and family and friends are welcome to watch the race experiences.
