Prepare for a pivotal business trip abroad or avoid order mix-ups at the local carniceria that result in lugging a case of Ecto Cooler home. The experienced instructors at Los Monitos will help customers tap their inner linguist to expand their communication skills and help cross over language and cultural barriers. Ten-week courses start at different experience levels and include 1.5 hours of class time each week in Spanish, English (ESL), French, German, Italian, and Portuguese. Check the Louisville and Prospect schedules for class times. Customers will make great strides in achieving language proficiency over that period, or develop their own hybrid language that’s useful for chatting with plants at home. Classes are capped at 10 students per course, ensuring efficient learning and decreasing back-of-the-room giggling.
Linda the Bra Lady, featured on The Nate Berkus Show, outfits women with bras, underwear, and other garments carefully designed to provide proper support to specific upper-body types. A wide selection of sizes, styles, and detachable compasses allow women to bolster their breasts with bras such as the Elila Jacquard soft-cup bra ($38), padded with triple-ply straps to ease shoulder pain, and the Le Mystère Soiree strapless bra ($74) to sport under elegant dresses. Harboring popular brands such as Spanx, Hanky Panky, Wacoal, Olga, and Mary Green, Linda equips bottoms with an eclectic collection of underwear ($8+) ranging from comfy basics to boyshorts and thongs. Bra-sized swimwear and bra accessories supplement the intimate selection, and all customers receive a complimentary fitting to make sure they're wearing the correct bra size and not a loose quilt of fig leaves.
When the rooms of The Sutton Studio for the Performing Arts aren’t resonating with piano chords, dance music, monologues, or melodies, they’re filled with insightful declamations from the highly experienced staff. Artistic director Jamie Lynn Gilliam leads the talented troupe, bringing more than 25 years of musical-theater experience that include dancing in professional productions and convincing Robert De Niro’s family that she was Robert De Niro. Her lieutenants include Kathy Todd Chaney, formerly of Kathy Todd Dance Studio, and several of the studio’s graduates, who teach tap, jazz, ballet, and hip-hop steps. Piano instructor Lynnette Jones has been playing piano for 27 years and acting teacher Josh Gilliam has performed in several professional productions since he graduated from Otterbein University’s musical-theater program. All this expertise fills The Sutton Studio’s two locations and unfolds during an array of classes, performances, and even private birthday parties.
