  • Big Fish Swim School
    While most people’s biggest water-related fear might be sharks, Phil Pektas's was children. Not the kids themselves, of course, but the prospect of teaching them. This terror first surfaced when he was tapped to fill in for the Pre-K instructor at the swim school where he taught. Fortunately, he conquered that fear during the very first lesson and 20 years later is still introducing young people to the necessary skills for ensuring safe, aquatic fun. Pektas and his staff of American Red Cross–, CPR-, and First-Aid- certified instructors use activities, toys, and analogies to improve performance in the pool. With games such as Bird Catcher, kids will learn how to control their breathing and hunt for sub-aquatic fowl indigenous to chlorinated pools.

  • Latin Explosion Dance School Orlando
    Though they lead group classes at multiple studio locations, the instructors at Latin Explosion Dance School don't need an official dance floor to showcase their moves. They've twirled on the Orlando Magic's basketball court during halftime, and they visit clients' homes for private lessons in salsa, merengue, bachata, and hip-hop. Such versatility enables them to teach a wide span of styles, from Latin dances such as flamenco and tango to ballroom and belly dance. They pass on their learned footwork to pupils of all ages, encouraging their diverse base of protégés to mingle at in-house talent-show socials and group travel events. A more intensive lesson plan comes in the form of their four-week workshops, during which they help dancers develop techniques and impress key differences between dance styles, including the variances in mambo versus salsa beats and how to distinguish a conga line from a linear group hug.

  • Body by God
    At The Cupcake Factory, bakers banish boxed and prepackaged ingredients from the premises to ensure that every cupcake is made fresh each day from scratch. Chomp into a tongue-tantalizing creation in any of 18 available flavors ($2.50 each). Delicately moist strawberry cakes repine under waves of pink butter-cream frosting, and the dapper chocolate cupcake dons a cap laced with fudgey shavings. Adventurous taste buds can travel abroad with a chai cupcake, which infuses vanilla cake with hints of cinnamon and exotic chai frosting, or steep in British tradition by devouring the vanilla butter-cream frosting on the english toffee cupcake and then pretending to be shocked by its immodest state of dress.

Kissimmee Main Street also puts on special events. These include everything from a food- truck bazaar to a sculpture pub crawl, during which participants view works of art on the street and in galleries while stopping at various food and drink spots.
