Benefits of Personal Training Serious athletes have long used personal trainers to enhance their performance in competition. Movie stars are known to hire personal trainers to keep them fitting into their Oscar gowns. But the people who benefit most from personal training are ordinary men and women seeking to be stronger and function more effectively in their everyday lives. Working with a trainer, anyone can achieve their fitness goals—goals as modest as touching your toes again or as ambitious as preparing to run a marathon. Whether you want to lose weight, regain flexibility, develop speed or simply feel good again, personal training is an activity from which you will continue to reap benefits in years to come. Our personal trainers’ main objectives are to assist, guide, and educate those who wish to experience a greater ease and physical ability in their lives.

SCIENCE CLASSES Kids Science Labs

Amazing Minds

Advanced Chess

Join the hottest critical thinking and problem-solving program in Chicago for an educational adventure. Kids Science Labs has developed innovative hands-on classes for children age two through twelve using our unique inquiry-based LIFES Curriculum (“Learning Innovation, Fun Engineering, and Science”). By engaging children with the hands-on science they love early and with regular frequency year round we help enable a generation of amazing critical thinkers regardless of their future careers. These activity-based classes teach core science principles based on a question that children ask and then use science activities with the guidance of outstanding teachers to explore answers. Our instructors are certified teachers and scientists.

Amazing Minds Make learning fun with this exciting after school program open to all first through third graders who love to learn. Amazing Minds offers a variety of interactive topics that will expand your child’s knowledge of the world and reinforce their academic skills. For example, children may become junior geologists and explore the world of rocks and minerals, investigate owl pellets, find out how to make raisins bounce through scientific experiments, learn about famous landmarks, rare Australian animals, or sharks, whales and dolphins, excavate hidden treasures from an ancient Egyptian tomb or sample ethnic cuisine from China or Italy. Join all the fun exploration in this can’t miss enrichment program. All materials are included. Each session a different country is explored, thus exposing your child to geography as well as different languages and cultures.

Chess Wizards If you feel your child needs more of a challenge, then this class will be the perfect way to expand their knowledge of chess. Children will learn advanced strategies and techniques and classes will focus on preparation for tournaments in the wider chess world.

TAI CHI

New!

Tai Chi is a low-impact martial art developed to improve circulation, tone muscles, increase flexibility, improve posture, enhance balance and induce relaxation. Often Tai Chi is studied for its health benefits but this art also has practical and calming benefits for daily life as well. Tai Chi is used by martial arts practitioners to enhance the study of the other art forms. Tai Chi class on Tuesdays covers cultivation of mind, body and spirit by performing a series of Tai Chi and Qi Gong movements and postures as a synchronized group meditation. Qi Gong is the Chinese philosophy and practice of aligning breath, physical activity and awareness for mental, spiritual and physical health. Tai Chi class on Thursdays covers principle and advance techniques of Yang style Tai Chi. In this class students study the traditional forms in depth and also learn meditation, partner sensitivity training and utilize the sword, knife, staff, fan and Qi Gong practices.

HAPKIDO

Traditional Karate is a martial art which emphasizes the principles and applications of weaponless self-defense. Our Karate program follows a systemized belt ranking for all participants. There are 11 belt levels (kyu) before first-degree black belt (shodan). A new student is assigned the white belt rank (eleventh kyu). One must fulfill certain requirements under normal practice conditions and in a test environment to secure progressive promotions up to and including the black belt (dan) levels. When one has acquired a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Karate, he or she can be promoted to the rank of first degree black belt. Uniforms, belt tests and tournaments are optional and will incur additional costs.

Hapkido, a new addition to the growing stable of WCH martial arts programs, is a dynamic Korean style martial art primarily focusing on self-defense without injury to the aggressor. Many techniques learned in Hapkido training can be integrated into daily life, such as falling techniques, personal safety and situational awareness. The training includes kicking, punching, throwing, falling, pressure points, sparring and more.

Puppies will also learn to sit and begin recall training (coming when called). This class is appropriate for puppies ages two–four months old.

For children, we offer a preK-12 religious education program, also on Sunday mornings at 10:30. Age-appropriate Sunday school classes provide exposure to the teachings and values of the major world religions, opportunities for social service, and the chance to develop a personal “faith statement.” All are welcome.

winnetka community house has the perfect space for all of your business needs,

right in the heart of the north shore.

Remembering Ruth Abelson Everyone called her Grandma Ruth. And even though she spent seventeen years designing costumes for the Children’s Theatre of Winnetka (CTW), she wasn’t concerned only with what the children wore. For all of those years, and over the course of 33 shows, Ruth lent her vision, talent, boundless energy, infinite care and love to CTW, first stepping in when her daughter, Cathy Hirschmann, produced and choreographed Anything Goes in 1997.

Ruth managed to transform the ordinary into the magical. From garments she uncovered at second hand stores to bolts of fabrics and buckets of buttons, and without use of a pattern or template save her rich imagination, she created hundreds of memorable costumes. There were princes and princesses and kings and queens. There were cowgirls and cowboys, gangsters and showgirls. There was even dancing cutlery, tumbling starfish, and skittering crabs.

Cathy recalls feeling over her head. As usual, she called her mother, who also happened to be her best friend and trusted advisor, for help. Cathy knew that her mom, an artist by training and avid and generous volunteer by nature, wouldn’t let her down. “I need a two-story ship,” she told her mom. “Do you think you can design it?” Like the show’s title, Ruth’s attitude was anything goes and, without hesitation, she designed that ship. Cathy joked that it was so extraordinary, so monumental, that they could have staged Titanic on it. Ruth’s work didn’t stop there. She painted sets, too, even going so far as creating “crowds” by populating the backdrops with each cast member’s face and then, when the show ended, gifting each child with his or her portrait. Ruth’s true talents were revealed in the costumes she designed and sewed over the years. From lions to sea creatures, beauties to beasts, Ruth envisioned original creations, employing innovative materials like hula hoops or metal loops to make the costumes both functional and comfortable. What mattered most to Ruth was how a child felt, driving her to create costumes that delighted their wearers. She was concerned that a child felt like the ultimate Triton, Belle or Peter Pan, but, more than that, she wanted the kids to feel like their absolute best selves. It wasn’t enough that each button, seam, spangle, sequin or hem was in place (although this was indeed important to Ruth). What really mattered was that each cast member felt as extraordinary as the clothes they wore. At this, Ruth excelled, fitting after fitting, show after show, and child after child.

And she never forgot a face, either. She remembered all the kids like they were her own.” Charlie Oh, another CTW alum, adds, “Ruth Abelson brought an incredible love of theatre and community to the Children’s Theatre of Winnetka. Every tiny gangster or underwater crustacean would feel they had meaning on stage because Ruth treated every moment on stage as what it is-- a gift. Her generosity of spirit will be missed.” “As talented as she was,” recalls Emily McLane, referring to a beautiful gold dress Grandma Ruth fashioned for her role in Beauty and the Beast, “what sticks with me more was the way she made me feel… The early teenage years are awkward for practically everybody, but she never failed to make me feel appreciated, talented, cared for, and, even as an angsty 13-year-old, pretty. (H)er constant support helped me develop into the young woman I am.”

All the while, Ruth forged deep and meaningful relationships with the hundreds of children who wore her costumes. They inevitably came to see their fittings with Ruth, and the care she extended on their behalf, no matter how large or small their role, as a highlight of CTW cast membership. As Aimee LeFevre, a former cast member of multiple shows, put it, “Ruth made each and every person involved with children’s theatre, whether stage crew, the star, or a rock in the background, feel so special. She treated you equally and made sure your costumes fit perfectly. She was happy to switch things to make you look and feel beautiful and special. I’ve been in many productions of Beauty and the Beast and CTW is the only one that handmade the costumes. You felt special because they were truly handcrafted and you just knew that Grandma Ruth made it just for you.

Ruth was unselfish and fearless, supportive and joyful. She was respected, admired, and loved. Her ability to reunite missing costume parts with their rightful wearers and willingness to go the extra mile, gathering up socks from the dressing room floor to wash before returning them to their owners, is a testament to her generosity of spirit and unflinching calm. Whether repairing a popped button or ripped seam between acts, or providing a human shield so that a young actor could change a costume in a crowded dressing room, her presence reassured the kids that they were being looked after and that they were loved. The CTW community will miss Grandma Ruth deeply, even as new generations of children continue to give life to the costumes she created.

Winnetka Community House is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in the safest manner possible, and holds the safety of the participants in the highest possible regard. Participants and parents registering their child in recreation programs must recognize, however, that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreation activities. Winnetka Community House continually strives to reduce such risks, and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions which have been designed to protect the participants’ safety.

Therefore, each person registering himself\herself or a family member for a recreation program/activity should review his/her own health insurance policy for coverage. It must be noted that the absence of health insurance coverage does not make Winnetka Community House automatically responsible for payment of medical expenses.
