  • MSA & Circus Arts
    As a graduate of the world-renowned Moscow State Circus school and former performer with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, Nourbol Meirmanov knows a thing or two about flying through the air with ease. Aside from his impressive physical capabilities and wealth of unique fitness knowledge, Nourbol possesses a passionate desire to share the joy of acrobatics and circus arts with other people, including his son Almas. After working with his dad as a young boy, Almas went on to perform professionally, compete in several international festivals, and act as a stuntman in a number of movies. Now fully grown, Almas has joined his dad to helm a team of experienced trainers at MSA & Circus Arts, a not-for-profit public charity that Nourbol founded. The warehouse-like space's floor and exposed-brick walls are lined with colorful padding that cushions the landings of amateur athletes preparing for sports-acrobatics competitions. Here, they introduce kids and adults to the thrill of the aerial arts, teaching them to gracefully dance and spin on swinging trapezes and suspended silks, as well as demonstrate other circus arts such as juggling and clowning. During contortion classes, an instructor from the Mongolian Circus School shows students how to twist their bodies into the shape of their own handwritten signatures. The crew also leads competitive-cheer sessions and circus-arts classes designed for preschoolers and homeschooled kids.

  • Tricoci University
    On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry. Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci protégés study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.

  • Fussy Baby Network
    Linda Gilkerson, a professor at Erikson Institute, founded the Fussy Baby Network to support families who were having difficulty with the crying, sleeping, and feeding challenges that a new baby can present. The innovative home-visit program supports any parent feeling stressed and depressed during the first months of the infant's life. To that end, she gathered social workers, counselors, psychologists, child-development specialists, and pediatricians to work together to ensure families have the most up-to-date knowledge for caring for a new baby. Today, Fussy Baby Network, a program of the Erikson Institute, has helped more than 6,000 families in Cook County, responding to requests from parents having concerns with their infant’s excessive crying, sleeping, or feeding difficulties. A specialist will travel to parents’ homes and assist them in overcoming their specific challenges, including colic, feeding problems, and disrupted sleeping schedules. Specialists help to determine sleep schedules, reassure parents, and teach them how to communicate with their new children. Fussy Baby Network also provides mental-health and development screenings to detect if family members could benefit from additional therapy; it can then offer referrals to other professionals.

  • EtiquetteFemme
    Akilah Easter may be well-versed in table manners and how to sit like a lady, but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, she spent her childhood as a shy, self-proclaimed tomboy. It wasn’t until Akilah’s mother encouraged her to pursue charm school, pageants, and modeling opportunities that she overcame her withdrawn, unladylike tendencies and stopped using the lobster fork as a weapon. Fifteen years later, Akilah still cherishes the rough-and-tumble part of her personality—she’s a runner, a certified personal trainer, and a YogaFit instructor—but she credits etiquette lessons as the source of her poise and confidence. Through her classes at Etiquette Femme, she builds an equally strong, self-assured character in her clients. Akilah starts sharpening manners at an early age with a course appropriate for tots, one for teens, and a four-week charm school for girls. But she also invites adults, men immersed in the dating world, and mother-daughter or father-son duos to conquer class topics. These include everything from table manners and formal dining to social-media etiquette, professional presentations, and the proper way to stand, walk, or mime walking down nonexistent stairs.
