When teaching a second language, Language Tree makes a crucial distinction between repetition and monotony. Repetition is necessary to help students remember key words and ideas, but monotony takes all the joy out of learning. To that end, Language Tree's educational DVDs and online language courses engage kids with songs, videos, and games that impart language skills, making for thrilling yet thorough lessons. Native-speaking characters guide the exercises in each chosen language, whether it's Spanish, German, Chinese, or Atlantean Bubble-Breathing.
These lessons all rely on the company's trademarked Multi-Cognition Approach: a learning technique based on repetition, active thinking, and information clustering to enhance retention of new vocabulary. Language Tree's program has been recognized by the Parents’ Choice Foundation, School Library Journal, and the Dove Foundation.

The meaning of art may be subjective, but Mission: Renaissance believes that the basic, technical skills needed to create art are learnable, regardless of a student’s age or experience. The instructors at the studio, which was originally founded in 1975, illuminate the Gluck Method, which focuses on the classic rendering techniques that the great masters used. The classes can accommodate students as young as 5, and they explore a number of different mediums—including charcoal, watercolors, and oils—while giving attendees the experience they need to appreciate art, as well as create it. Spread across 19 studio locations in southern California, attendance is capped at around six students per instructor, which allows them to offer artists more personalized feedback.
For more than 25 years, seasoned performers have spread the joy of dance at LonDance. Fluent in the art of "social dancing", the twelve qualified instructors on staff are competing professionals who invigorate each class with fun and energy. Two or three classes are held each day, in styles as varied as ballroom, salsa, and swing, and can be used for weddings, events, or just to get in to shape. Studio parties enable dancers to show off their moves or scrutinize the mirrors to catch any ghosts brushing up on the waltz they originally learned in 1790s Vienna.
