The evolution of Ovation Academy

Students and teachers practice a performance at Ovation Academy in Oak Park.

T

ina Reynolds, artistic director of Ovation Academy for the Performing Arts says, “Our mission is to build, engage, inspire, and educate our students through the power of music, theater and dance. Ovation Academy also strives to present the highest caliber of artistic expression that enriches our students, entertains audiences, and motivates our community.” With her team of instructors, Reynolds says Ovation Academy provides the highest quality of training and instruction in the arts, encouraging excellence, enthusiasm, professionalism and passion in students. “Ovation believes every child should have access to high-quality arts education and that the arts inspire creativity, intellectual development, confidence, teamwork, discipline, enthusiasm, active living, and leadership in our children and youth,” Reynolds says. Their programming trains students to be lifelong learners in the performing arts. “For students wishing to prepare for potential performing arts career paths,” she says, “Ovation provides fundamental

training in music, theater, dance, musical theater, and soon, behind the scenes. We offer classes in group vocal training, acting tools, musical theater, audition techniques, tap, jazz, hip hop, improve, and a variety of audition and training workshops. Our preschool program is structured to get children moving, thinking, singing and using creative play and their imaginations.”

With the support of a dedicated community, a new partnership with Sally Prescott, Marcia Frank and Paul Beckwith, I opened Ovation Academy for the Performing Arts in October 2014 at its own stand-alone facility in Oak Park, where children and youth, age 4-18, in the western suburbs and throughout Chicago have year-round access to performing arts training and education.

How long has your business been open in Oak Park? The evolution of Ovation Academy began in 2007, when four passionate teachers, dedicated to the growth of young people through the power of performing arts — myself, Valerie Sokol, Linda Powell and Michael Jones — created a program to provide young people with a theatrical experience that would foster and emphasize the importance of excellence, hard work and artistic expression and appreciation. In 2011, I revived Ovation when I reshaped it into a successful musical theater experience for dedicated high school artists who wanted access to professional training and a high-caliber performing arts outlet.

Why did you choose Oak Park for your location? Oak Park is also home to BRAVO Academy at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School, which I have directed for the past 13 years. BRAVO has blossomed into a nationally renowned arts training program, which is exciting for the Oak Park community. However, this exceptional program can only reach middle-schoolers who attend Brooks Middle School. I wanted to make available excellent arts training to the entire community of Oak Park. Any student can join Ovation simply by signing up. If a child desires to learn, they should have an outlet available to them. Lacey Sikora

At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago, our mission is simple: deliver world-class care to children who need it most – whether their families can afford it or not. For 90 years we’ve specialized in helping children affected by orthopaedic conditions, cleft lip and palate, spinal cord injury, and rehabilitation needs. And while expertise, dedication and generosity make it all possible, we believe our hospital is fueled by love. That love is what helped the Shriners network of 22 locations treat over 127,000 children last year alone, helping them at every step as they made the journey from patients back to kids.

A chat with Alley Cat

O

ak Parker Jeanne Nohalty opened Alley Cat Décor on Lake Street in 2015 looking to fill a niche she thought the community would appreciate. As an interior designer, she had been using Annie Sloan paint on projects for herself and clients for years. She decided to open a store that would highlight her love of design, offer classes to the public on painting techniques for furniture and other household items and also be a home base for her design services. “We are a powerful resource for DIY homeowners,” she said. “Our most exciting product is Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. Customers love it because there are no VOCs [volatile organic compounds] so you can paint indoors, there is a 20-minute dry time so you can complete a piece in a day, and there is no need to prime or sand prior finishes!” Nohalty answered a few questions for us about her store and Oak Park.

How long has your business been open in Oak Park? The store’s one year anniversary is in June. Why did you choose Oak Park for your location? Oak Park is where my husband and I are raising our children. I value small business and what it means to the local economy and the experience of community. What about this part of Oak Park made sense for your business? I love the historic and artistic value of the Medical Arts Building [715 Lake St.]. It fit the concept and values of Alley Cat Decor perfectly — the idea of making something “old” new again.

Jeanne Nohalty at her shop Alley Cat Decor in downtown Oak Park. WILLIAM CAMARGO/Staff Photographer

What kind of customers do you see coming in? Our shop attracts people of all ages and areas. Outside of Oak Park, we get a good amount of traffic from people living in Chicago who are passionate about DIY, design and vintage. What makes owning this business exciting for you? The ability to be creative and support

my customers who are passionate about their homes and design. What do you enjoy doing in your free time? My daughters are my passion and I love being a mother. Being involved with their Girl Scout troops and T-ball teams brings me a lot of joy. My “Zen” time is spent in the garden and, if I’m lucky, a yoga class! Lacey Sikora

A Lively Q&A with Anne Pezala

L

ively Athletics, located at 109 N. Oak Park Ave. is a women’s boutique specializing in running shoes and athletic apparel for active women. Co-owners and sisters, Anne and Kate Pezalla, note that their focus is on individual service. “We will spend hours with a customer to get them in the perfect shoe for running or walking,” Anne says. “We also specialize in sports bras — a properly fitting one is so important for every woman.” How long has your business been open in Oak Park? Lively opened in August of 2014. It’s such a short time, really. But we’ve succeeded far beyond our initial expectations, and we owe it all to the wonderful and supportive community in and around Oak Park. We love that our clients go out of their way to shop local, and they treat us like friends, not simply business owners. We’ve gotten so many postcards and photos of clients wearing our shoes or apparel on exotic trips all over the world. We love it here Why did you choose Oak Park for your location? First, and most importantly, we are Oak Parkers. Kate and I went to Irving, Julian and OPRF. I’m raising my kids here now, and Kate is in the process of moving back to Oak Park so she can bring up her daughter [due in September] here. We know these streets like the back of our hands. We have run literally every single street in Oak Park as part of our annual GOvember challenge, where we ask participants to run all of Oak Park over the course of a month for fun, fitness, and prizes. Secondly, we got a lot of support from Oak Park before we opened. The Oak Park

PHOTO PROVIDED

Economic Development Corporation was very helpful, meeting with us many, many times from when our business plan was only in its roughest of drafts, all the way through until days after we opened. The Hemingway Business District, where Lively is located, has been helpful and welcoming, and they organize all kinds of great events — like the annual sidewalk sale and the brand new Hemingway Festival in July. Finally, we have an amazing community here. I started a running club for women many years ago, as a way to make friends. That little club has grown into Best Foot Forward Running Group, an extremely active group of nearly 200 women, with a board of directors comprising some of the most talented women I’ve ever met. BFF has been so supportive of Lively and has co-sponsored some of our most popular events, such as the annual Winter Running Fashion Show. What about Oak Park made sense for your business? The Hemingway District is the perfect place for a boutique. We’re in great company with the two other shoe stores on our block, Nora’s and Amoure de la Terre. Sanem’s is just terrific, and Filoni’s is an

anchor in the neighborhood. Women know it and have shopped there for years, so we benefit from their regulars popping in to check us out. Tony’s Shoe Repair has also been a surprisingly beneficial neighbor. We see a lot of foot traffic from customers who just happened to be walking by on their way to drop off shoes. And with all the new restaurants in the area [Citrine, Hamburger Mary’s, Saigon Pho, Lola’s Cantina], I think the neighborhood is just going to get more and more popular. What kind of customers do you see coming in? Our customers are overwhelmingly women, to no one’s surprise. We get a lot of young moms during the day, either with their little ones in tow (that’s when our children’s play area really comes in handy) or during school hours. We also have done well with empty-nesters — women who finally have the time to refocus on their own health and wellness. By and large, the majority of our customers are Oak Parkers, but we are lucky enough to have a few loyal Lively clients who drive in from as far away as Naperville and Highland Park to shop with us.

Patients at Disomma Foot & Ankle Clinic Enjoy Spa-Like Treatments can leave feet aching and tired. At the DiSomma Foot & Ankle Clinic, the whirlpool treatments along with other foot therapies can breathe new life into tired feet. Whirlpool therapy is also used to promote healing after surgery, injury or wounds, and for treating various foot problems. With regular visits, diabetics maintain healthy feet through therapies, and many patients enjoy the stimulation and softness of the feet.

W

hat if a routine trip to the doctor felt more like a trip to the spa? What if relaxation and enjoyment were built into every appointment? At Oak Park’s DiSomma Foot & Ankle Clinic, patients are raving about the little extras that add up to significant relaxation at each visit to the foot doctor. Routine foot care might include nail trimming services, callous removal and pain reduction. Part of the patient care experience at the DiSomma Foot & Ankle Clinic is making these treatments more pleasurable for patients. Office Manager Claudette McDonald notes, “Our patients really enjoy the therapies. Our unique style of patient care gives them a feeling of enjoyment in going to the doctor.” In the whirlpool therapy room,

patients are relaxed by the soothing, warm waters of the whirlpool. In the luxurious massaging chairs, patients can read or relax while soaking their feet in a quiet environment before seeing the doctor. After seeing the doctor, patients are escorted to the waxing room, where their feet are treated to lotion and then application of a medicated paraffin wax treatment. Patients leave with softer skin as well as a refreshed state of mind.

When a trip to the doctor feels like a trip to the spa, it’s a winwin for patient health. Renewed energy, pain free feet and softer skin all add up to make patients feel so much better than they did before seeking treatment at the Disomma Foot & Ankle Clinic.

Education first extensive site redevelopment project since 1967, restoring the landmark stadium built in 1924 and creating new playing fields with all-weather turf. Students originally attended classes in space provided in Central School (now 100 Forest Place). A building to house the high school (East Ave., south side of Lake St.) was constructed in 1892 and included some of the first

science labs provided in secondary schools in America. Enrollment received a special boost in 1899 when the high school was separated from the Oak Park Elementary District, and a consolidated high school district was formed with River Forest. In 1905, land was purchased on Ontario St., north of Lake St., and the building was completed in 1907. The north wing was completed in 1913,

and the west side of the building quadrangle was completed in the 1920s. Construction also included a field house in 1927. In the late 1967, the building was extended south across Ontario St. to connect the academic building with the physical education facilities. In 1999, the District 200 Board of Education purchased the South Field across Lake St. The property is bounded by Lake St.,

Scoville Ave., East Ave., and the el tracks.

Building a better smile at Oak Park Prosthodontics

W

hat’s a prosthodontist? It’s a question that Dr. Anne Fabricius, owner of Oak Park Prosthodontics, often gets. With her characteristic smile, she will enthusiastically explain that a prosthodontist is a dentist with three additional years of training in restorative dentistry. They are experts in cosmetics, crowns, implants, bridges, dentures, and the management of complex dental problems. Currently there are only five women in Illinois that are board-certified in prosthodontics. Dr. Anne Fabricius is one of them, and the only one in private practice. A graduate of Harvard University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Fabricius established Oak Park Prosthodontics in 2013. She offers general dentistry services, such as cleanings; as well as specialty services in the repair and replacement of teeth. In addition to her practice,

she also teaches the complete denture course at University of Illinios at Chicago. Why Prosthodontics? “I love problem solving,” Fabricius says, “I enjoy providing patients with unique solutions to solve a variety of dental problems.” She explains that most dental problems can be solved with this specialized attention.

Solutions for Denture Wearers

“I often see patients who have had a bad experience with partials or dentures,” says Dr. Fabricius. “Unfortunately, many people have poorly fitted dentures and think that their only hope is a mouth full of implants, which may be out of reach financially. Luckily, these patients are often pleasantly surprised to find that a well made partial or denture is comfortable and also improves their appearance and ability to chew.”

Dental implants add many exciting possibilities for denture wearers. “For patients who wear a lower denture, the addition of just two dental implants can dramatically improve the ability to chew,” says Dr. Fabricius. “Special connectors are attached to the under surface of the denture so that it snaps onto the implants, eliminating the need for denture glue.” Another exciting option is to have a full set of teeth permanently attached to four or more dental implants. “This is a great option for patients who are tired of removing their dentures at night – it is the closest thing to having your natural teeth back,” says Dr. Fabricius. “Patients who choose this route find that they can eat steak, bagels, apples, and other foods that require more chewing power.”

Why Choose a Prosthodontist?

Dr. Fabricius’ expertise and attention to detail combine to give every patient a beautiful smile and a pleasant experience. Wendy, a patient of the practice remarks, “This was a totally different experience - I have never met a dentist so focused on details. I finally have crowns that are comfortable!” “No one wants to keep redoing their dental work,” said Dr. Fabricius, noting her additional training allows her to provide her patients with high quality services that will last longer. If you are considering getting implants or any type of cosmetic dentistry, or you are just looking for a new dentist for routine care, call Dr. Anne Fabricius. Her office, Oak Park Prosthodontics, is located at 185 N. Marion Street in Downtown Oak Park. Visit the website at OakParkImplants.com or call 708-386-0177.

dr. fabricius is one of only 25 board-certified specialists in crowns, implants, and dentures in illinois

“Dr. Anne is amazing. I was in a terrible situation where my front six teeth were crowned incorrectly... she is doing an amazing job fixing my problem.”

It became a public lending library in 1902. Over time, two branch locations were established. The Maze branch, named for longtime librarian Adele Maze, opened in 1936. It was expanded and renovated in 2006. The Dole branch served as a community college in the 1930s. A new main library was built on the site of the Scoville Institute in 1964.

What’s new on Lake Street? Novo

N

eb Mrvaljevic is no stranger to the restaurant business. He has been working in the industry since the 1990s and opened House Red wine bar and lounge in Forest Park in the 2000s. He recently opened Novo, a bistro and wine bar on Lake Street that is building off the House Red concept. “Novo is a bit of a spin-off from House Red,” he said. “We have that loungy feel and atmosphere.” It capitalizes on the skills of Chef Devon Owen, formerly of House Red, and Mrvaljevic says Owen helps define the restaurant’s ethos. “We have a local, chef-driven menu,” he said. “We feature seasonal items and really get to know our farmers. We are conscious about everything. If we buy half a pig, we use the whole thing. Our wines are also in that category of being sustainable. I’m from the Balkans, so we might bring in some interesting wines from that region that maybe nobody here has seen before.” Novo is located at 734 Lake Street, just east of Oak Park Avenue. In addition to dinner and wine, the restaurant offers

File

brunch on Saturday and Sunday, and in May added weekday lunches as well. Not content to rest on his laurels, Mrvaljevic is working on plans for a breakfast and lunch concept as his next venture.

What about this part of Oak Park made sense for your business? I know that foot traffic drives business. I wanted our location to be part of Oak Park that people walk by.

How long has your business been open in Oak Park? We had our grand opening on March 3.

What kind of customers do you see coming in? People come in from all of the areas surrounding Oak Park. Luckily, with the following we had with House Red, we didn’t have to do too much to get customers to come in. Customers from Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park are also bringing in their friends from the city. I like to see chefs and wine people coming in as well. It’s a good sign for Oak Park when those people want to dine out here.

Why did you choose Oak Park for your location? With House Red, which was located in Forest Park, most of our clientele came from Oak Park and River Forest, so it made sense to move there. When Anan and the Oak Park Economic Development Corporation approached me about bringing a new business here, I was happy to do it. Oak Park as a community is very educated. They needed something like this. With new development, the village is pushing really hard to bring in restaurants and bars with an urban feeling like this. Oak Park has that great urban-suburban feel. It reminds me of neighborhoods like Andersonville in Chicago.

What makes owning this business exciting for you? I’ve been in the business a long time, working in restaurants in the city and in the suburbs. I tried to do something else, but it didn’t last long. This is what I have a passion for. I love this business. Lacey Sikora

Beer and cheer on the boulevard The Beer Shop, located at 1026 North Blvd. in Oak Park, is the brain child of Tony Compaglia. The craft beer and bottle shop recently celebrated its one-year anniversary in the village, and has been drawing crowds with its focus on local brews. The Beer Shop details its long list of beers on its website: www.beershophq. com and also keeps customers updated via Twitter and Facebook. In the short time the Beer Shop has been part of downtown Oak Park’s scene, it has become a neighborhood hangout with a laid-back vibe. Customers are welcome to bring their own food or hang out playing games at one of the picnic-style tables. Dogs are welcome. The shop is open seven days a week and regularly holds special events, everything from trivia and game nights to nights focused on a particular brewer or beers from a specific region.

Compaglia had this to say about his latest venture. Why did you choose Oak Park for your location? Oak Park is a great town, with great people and lots of craft beer lovers.

explore a new place. What makes owning this business exciting for you? The dress code … That’s a joke.

What about this part of Oak Park made sense for your business? Our location has lots of foot traffic and festivals, supportive local restaurants, and new residential construction.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Owning your own business, marriage and twin girls doesn’t leave a lot of free time. What little time I do have is devoted to my friends, the San Francisco Giants and listening to rock and roll.

What kind of customers do you see coming in? Our regulars are all ages, and we love them. They have been very, very good to us. New folks come in all the time. We see a lot of new faces, particularly as the weather gets warmer and people want to

Why do you like Oak Park? People are super friendly, well-traveled, and open minded about trying new beer. Some of the best ideas I’ve gotten about my business have come from my customers’ suggestions. Lacey Sikora
