Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

Speckled fish swim languidly through turquoise-blue water beneath an orange sky. Nearby, a pair of white cranes stretch their long necks toward the sun, and sea turtles glide past fronds of kelp looking for their lost keys. But this isn't an exotic animal sanctuary—rather, these natural scenes are captured in gleaming stained glass. The charming images are the work of the craftsmen at D & L Art Glass, a studio specializing in stained and leaded panes. They shape artistic pieces to adorn windows or doors, form colorful pendants, and etch eye-catching patterns into metal or stone surfaces. Instead of keeping their crystalline knowledge to themselves, the experts instruct others in the glass arts during classes and multiday workshops.
