  • Steele Training
    When self-taught photographer Phil Steele was first starting out in his field, he ran into a few walls while seeking more knowledge. Professional photography courses would have been a great place to hone his skills, but they were usually out of his budget. And though he found a lot of free information online, it was often bad advice or highly disorganized. So he cobbled together his own lessons using a mixture of photography books, online and DVD courses, seminars, and practice. After about a decade of absorbing new things and working as a photographer, Steele realized he was in the position to create the type of educational resource he craved as a novice. He founded Phil Steele Photography, which offers online photography and editing courses and free tutorials. His courses range from event photography to Photoshop to Lightroom skills, and he teaches all levels.

  • Pivot Point Academy
    Leo Passage came to the United States in 1958, traveling with his wife Lenie and pair of shears. Leo was a rising star in the European hairdressing world, and had already gained noticed for his cuts that were a little more creative than most. He drew inspiration from the Bahaus principles of art and design as a starting point for his hair styles. His creative approach to personal style won him 95 hair dressing competitions and the title of World Supreme Champion and Hairdresser of the Year at New York's famed International Beauty Show in 1961. A year later, Leo decided to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of hairdressers, and founded the first Pivot Point Academy on the north side of Chicago. Now, more than 50 years after its founding, Pivot Point's schools still embrace Leo's creative vision. Instructors arm students with top notch hair cutting and aesthetic skills, as well as an impeccable eye of style. The schools invite clients to come experience just how talented their students are with services such as haircuts, manicures, and pedicures, the cure for a listless foot.

  • Mayer School of Irish Dance
    Mary Mayer's career in Irish dancing started when she took her first lessons in Ireland while staying with her grandmother in the early '70s. She loved it so much that when she returned to Chicago, she—as well as her brother John—began taking lessons at a local Irish-dance school, where they danced with such people as Lord of the Dance creator Michael Flatley. Both Mary and John eventually starting placing at regional and national championships. In 1980, they founded the Mayer School of Irish Dancing. It began in a basement with only five students—two of who were their younger brother and sister, Paul and Julie Mayer. These two followed in their older siblings' footsteps by placing in championships and even landing roles in Road to Perdition. Paul trained actress Jennifer Jason Leigh and danced with her in the film. Julie also trained many actors and performed alongside Paul Newman and Daniel Craig. Though John has since retired, Mary continues to teach classes six days a week in Villa Park and Galena. Paul and Julie man two of the school's additional locations, which now span four states. Their students have placed in regional and national championships. Some have even traveled to Ireland to put their skills on display at the All-Ireland Championship and see if any snakes have found their way back yet.
