Capturing True Emotion is driven by a dynamic band of instructors who rove across the continent with cameras and teaching skills in hand. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversize head, the educators provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization, giving participants complete control over all of their camera settings. During the hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, students convene at a tantalizing location to practice skills such as controlling depth of field by adjusting the aperture, composing a family portrait so there's not always a burning zeppelin in the background, using alternative angles to avoid red eye, and other techniques.

The teachers at Wine and Canvas believe anyone can be artist. In fact, they draw out skills from people who have never even held a paintbrush before. To do this, they guide participants step-by-step through the process of replicating a painting during three-hour classes held at different restaurants and bars throughout the city.
To keep each class fresh, they regularly change up the selected masterpieces, which can be anything from the Eiffel Tower at night to an abstract rendering of trees. No matter what and where they teach, though, they always supply students with all the necessary accoutrements, including paints, canvases, aprons, and pronunciation guides for realistic French-accents. The one thing they don't supply is wine, allowing guests to choose for themselves what to drink at the venues' full bars.
These nights on the town are for adults only, but they do host kid-friendly cookie and canvas nights for children wanting to discover or flex their artistic chops.
When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements.
Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and
salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.
Meet Nannette. She's a former professional ballroom competitor with a slew of competition wins under her belt, but that's not as important as what she'll do for you. Alongside her staff of similarly talented dancers, Nannette cultivates a fun, inclusive, and laid back atmosphere while helping students perfect their ballroom footwork with classes in popular styles such as swing, waltz, tango, and cha-cha. Men, women, and even children learn how to twist and spin at all of Nannette's six locations, where guests can get exercise, relieve stress, and meet new dance-savvy people while having fun. The studio also offers private lessons in clients' homes or in their favorite supermarket aisles.
The squeal of tires. The cheers of the crowd. The roar of the engines—well, actually, these engines don't really roar, lest they upset the neighbors. With their pint-sized racecar tracks, Hot Rod Entertainment can bring the stock-car experience to almost anyone's backyard. Drivers stand in a semi-circle around the track, controlling their car by remote steering wheel and others' cars by telepathy. The cars are about the size of a 12-pack of soda, and the smallest tracks are about 16 feet in diameter, so races run pretty quickly. That means that as many as 120 people can enter the arena in an hour, making these portable adrenaline-pumpers the perfect activity for a block party or barbecue blowout.
