Learning to build a robot. Learning a Bollywood dance routine. Learning to navigate the SAT. These seemingly unrelated topics are all covered during SMARTS Clubs' afterschool enrichment classes in an effort to help kids master not just an isolated subject matter, but the learning process itself. Unlike traditional tutoring, which focuses on specific assignments, the enrichment classes attack the root cause of academic challenges by building critical thinking, creativity, and key cognitive skills. This focus reflects the philosophy of the club's founder, Dr. Meenakshi Singh, an education expert whose experience runs the gamut from assistant college professor to substitute teacher. And her interdisciplinary background is reflected in her institute's classes and the principles that guide the classes.
The methodology imparted at the clubs is based on five core concepts; training rather than tutoring, development of cognitive skills, focus on strategical problem-solving, and whole-brain learning which encourages kids to think outside of the box. Those elements are applied alongside mindful yoga that enables kids to learn how to unwind after a long day of working their brains. The subject matter ranges from directly school-related reading and math and science concepts to yoga, which develops focus and the most essential college skill, curling up small enough to fit in your dorm-room bed.

Founded by a gregarious coach named Mike Winburn, Win Kids Sports and Learning Center has grown from a tiny operation with a handful of play mats and a lone guitar to a 27,000-square-foot facility that plays host to a huge variety of kids' classes and camps. Monitored by a talented staff that includes former competitive swimmers and black belts in judo, taekwondo, and jiu-jitsu, children aged 6 months to 15 years old build stronger bodies and self-confidence in sessions ranging from gymnastics and martial arts to dance and cheer. A certified lifeguard watches over paddlers during lessons and birthday parties held around the 90-degree swimming pool. Staffers also teach private music lessons, where youths can learn songs to coax out reclusive invisible friends, and a new QUICKSTART and Jr. Tennis Program rounds out services at the facility.
Turning Pointe Dance Studio reflects the culmination of a lifelong dream. Since she was 9 years old, Amy Allen has dreamed of establishing her own dance studio. She began her dancing career with the Metrocrest Civic Ballet before acting as the artistic director of a local performing group. Now at Turning Pointe, she passes on her years of training to young and adult dancers alike. She teaches kids the proper technique and vocabulary of tap, jazz, ballet, and hip-hop while nurturing their self-confidence. Her adult students can explore ballet and tap classes in a relaxed, noncompetitive setting or whip into shape in cardio classes, building the endurance to out-tap-dance a tap-dancing octopus. Her students respond to their instruction with graceful skill and style and have represented the studio in performances at the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic halftime show, Six Flags Over Texas, and Walt Disney World.
