  • Hip Expressions
    Having seen an upswing in interest in one of the world’s oldest dance styles, Johanna and Karen started a belly-dancing collective in 2004 as a way to create a community for both professionals and students and an audience for monthly showcases. They gave these enthusiasts a brick-and-mortar hangout in 2008 when they opened their first center for classes and events, which has since blossomed and moved into a new space nearly four times the size of the old studio. Today, Hip Expressions offers drop-in and ongoing classes led by seasoned instructors. Classes focus on introducing newcomers to the art form’s fundamental isolation techniques that keep hips and waists from arguing over the remote. In addition to belly dancing, classes include a variety of other dances and fitness crazes such as Zumba, yoga for dancers, or active isolated stretching.

  • Impulse Pole Dance and Exotic Fitness
    When she dances, Sarah Murray doesn't just use a pole?she incorporates more than 15 years of ballet and modern dance training. And as the owner of Impulse Pole Dance & Exotic Fitness, she doesn't just dance. She and all her instructors have gone through pole safety and training certification, which they use to teach sultry, graceful routines in the studio's pole dance sequence. It starts with basic spins and transitions in the mandatory Intro to Pole Dance class, then progresses to more complex inversions and tricks such as The Phoenix, in which the dancer burns down her pole and builds a new one. In business more than five years, Impulse Pole Dance & Exotic Fitness was voted Best of the Bay 2011-Pole Fitness, and caters to women of all dance and fitness levels.

  • ABC Bicycles
    An avid bike-racer since age 12, Rick Fidanzato became skipper of ABC Bicycles at the young age of 23. In the 10 years since, Rick has opened another store and once helped a patron craft an ultra-high bike that put the rider?s seat well above the rooftops of passing cars. During the rare free moment, Rick tinkers with his '60 Cadillac and keeps plenty of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Rolling Stones mixed into his stores' eclectic playlist.

  • Najmah Nour's Bellydance
    Belly dancing marries the subtle beauty of Middle Eastern dance with intensive core exercise; techniques focus on isolating specific muscle groups for a sultry, more flexible bod.

Najmah Nour, one of the studio's brightest hip-swaying stars, has performed across the southeastern United States, including a storied command performance for President Carter. With a friendly approach to instruction, Najmah encourages ladies of all levels to shimmy and undulate to the seductive ping of the plucked string.

  • Florida Golf Coach
    In golf, it's important to choose the right club for each shot. It's equally important to choose the right educational approach for each student. Coach Marc intuitively understands this, which is why he helps golfers improve their swings with everything from one-on-one instruction to group clinics and on-course playing lessons. Over the years, Marc has shared his wisdom with more than 1,000 students. Take a look at his playing résumé, and you'll see that he's uniquely qualified to do so. At age 16, when most kids are busy goofing off, he set a course record at the challenging Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Course in Palm Harbor. He's also a two-time PGA Tour qualifier with three holes-in-one to his name. Today, Marc stays sharp by schooling new golfers at locations across Florida. To help him analyze what even his keen eye can't catch, he uses modern technology such as video analysis and balls that explode when you don't hit them correctly.

  • Pocket Change Inshore Fishing Charters
    In sports, home-field advantage gives your team the upper hand. In fishing, it's actually not much different. Born and raised in St. Pete, Pocket Change's Captain Anthony knows exactly where to fish and all the ideal conditions for success on the water. During his group outings?which include tackle, bait, and lures for everyone?he leads the way as anglers haul in snook, redfish, trout, and other fish. They do so from the company's 16-foot custom skiff or its 18-foot bayboat, scouring local grass flats and reefs for their scaly targets. Afterward, Pocket Change also provides filet packaging so anglers can take their catch home to eat or to show their parents how much they continue to achieve in life.
