  • Red Rock Fencing Center
    Director of Red Rock Fencing Center Frank Van Dyke is a longtime expert when it comes to the sport, with more than 30 years as a fencer, coach, and referee. He trained under one Olympian and three Olympic coaches before becoming a certified member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association and ascending to the board of the United Fencing Federation. The energetic Van Dyke does not rest on his laurels, competing to maintain world-class A-rated abilities with an épée, which crowns his talent with foil and sabre. In both instruction and competition, he draws techniques from German, Russian, Chinese and American Olympic schools, and specializes in strip and team tactics. The fencing center embodies both Van Dyke's zeal for excellence and dedication to his community. Olympic and World Cup instructors teach skills in all three weapons to competitive and amateur students, who parry across custom flooring designed to absorb the shocks to joints and muscles caused by forceful lunges and sudden NASA landings. Every Saturday, the team hosts a public tournament for anyone who contributes to its accompanying potluck, and heads beyond the center to work with boy scouts and schoolchildren.

  • Creative Kids Learning Center
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Creative Kids Learning Center facet_type_id: 62c27ae0-5f39-1032-be7f-cfa77584f422 html_text: Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool." Inside colorful classrooms or outside on playgrounds, inspiration flows freely as kids participate in a curriculum that features such subjects as initiative, music and movement, and creative representation. The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends. Safety and health are also cornerstones of the business, resulting in toys, equipment, and classrooms being sanitized frequently.

  • Ace Bartending Academy
    At Ace Bartending's 40-foot bar, ice clinks against glasses and prospective mixologists chatter during hands-on courses. Instructors wax informational about the history and production of liquor before outlining state and municipal legal requirements for serving alcohol or distributing liquor to horses. As students progress, they migrate to eight functional bartending stations that feature working carbon dioxide lines, and lessons feed hungry brains tidbits of information on the use of glassware and garnishes to craft a beverage with fitting aesthetic appeal. The curriculum bounds across a bubbling, colorful rainbow of 200 different drinks and recipes. In addition to hands-on demonstrations and role-playing exercises, courses hand down lessons on how to land a job as a bartender and give tips for job interviews. The classroom's walls, like those of a real bar, are crowded with colorful bottles, lit by crackling neon beer signs, and held together by flyers for bands seeking bassists.

  • Cox Pavilion
    In 2008, a former Lady Rebel All-American returned to her alma mater in a new role: as head coach of the UNLV women's basketball team. Prior to that, coach Kathy Olivier spent 15 years at the helm of the UCLA team. The wisdom she’s accumulated from her years spent guiding young ladies toward their goals on the hardwood are transferred to the next generation of female athletes in youth summer programs. Led by coach Olivier, her staff, and current UNLV players, sessions fill the 18,500-seat Thomas & Mack Center with the sound of whistles, bouncing balls, squeaking shoes, and the cheers of an imaginary crowd of fans and cool dragons. During each energetic workout, staff share their love of the game as they teach passing, dribbling, shooting, and rebounding with group and individual instruction, daily games, and contests.
