In 1962, founder and director Milton C. Anderson’s original incarnation of The Young Americans was as a show choir that went on to perform on renowned stages, such as the one on The Ed Sullivan Show. As he saw more and more schools cutting funding for their performing arts programs, he began holding workshops for school-age children in 1992. Today, these courses have spread across the country and into Europe, Australia, and Japan.
The Young Americans World Tour Summer Camp has become a fixture in the Omaha area at the Midland University, and earned a feature on The Morning Blend in 2011. During both day and overnight camps, aspiring performers immerse themselves in arts-laden workshops and classes, rather than spending their summer days frying eggs on the sidewalk. The Premier Day Camp gives kids a general overview of the performing arts, while the two overnight camps focus on Hollywood and Broadway performing. All camps culminate in a final performance, during which campers can amaze their family, friends, and imaginary family and friends with their newly honed skills.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At Songbird Studios, I focus on more than proper singing technique. I also teach presentation, performance techniques, & microphone etiquette.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Songbird Studios provides the copies of sheet music and the space. Students are asked to bring a folder to keep their music in and a pencil.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have taken 17 years worth of private lessons. My private lesson experiences allowed her to grow & develop as a performer & was my time to be completely myself. I want to provide the opportunity for my students to discover themselves through their own passion for music.
What do you love most about your job?
I love watching my students set and achieve their music goals! It's the most exciting thing for me to see and hear my students growing in their abilities. Even more importantly, the glow of confidence I've seen from my students is my very favorite part of the experience!
Angie Lewis never considered herself an artist. When she first began dabbling with paint, she found herself overwhelmed by choices. After fretting over what paintbrush to use and what brand of paint to buy, she eventually gave up and stuffed her art supplies—and her creativity—in the back of her closet.
They remained there until one day, while visiting friends in Denver, Angie attended an "entertainment-style" art class. It had music, wine, and a casual "it's OK to mess up" vibe, and Angie knew she just had to bring the concept home with her to Nebraska. And thus The Corky Canvas was born, a place where friends and artists of all skill levels gather with paintbrushes in one hand, and wine glasses in the other. At two Corky Canvas locations, Angie and her team of instructors lead groups through nightly featured painting, private parties, team buildings, and more. Painters are always welcome to change the colors of their class's suggested design, or to even paint something new entirely, following the whims of their creative spirits.

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.
